Sadness and tears have overtaken me. I cry out the the Lord “Save me o Lord, deliver me”. My human frailty annoys me. I cry out the the Lord “Make me wise o Lord, make me strong”. I wept and drowned in my own sorrow. I cried out to the Lord “Lift up my spirits o Lord, help me defend myself from myself.”
When the dark clouds cover my horizon, who do I turn to? When the enemy knocks at the door of my soul, who do I turn to? When I’m desperate in my human weakness, who do I turn to? I turn to the Lord, mighty and strong. He knows my heart and He knows my troubles. He is my Light in the time of darkness. I cry out to the Lord: “Deliver me Lord, save me because of Your unfailing Love.”
“3 When my spirit grows faint within me, it is You who watch over my way. In the path where I walk people have hidden a snare for me. 4 Look and see, there is no one at my right hand; no one is concerned for me. I have no refuge; no one cares for my life.
5 I cry to you, Lord; I say, “You are my refuge, my portion in the land of the living.”
When troubles arise in our life, who do we turn to? Who will wipe away our tears? Who lifts up our spirit? The Lord mighty and strong! He is our refuge in times of troubles and doubts. Reach out to the Lord. Call on His Name. Seek His help. His Love surrounds us every day of our lives.
Have you ever cried yourself to sleep? Have you ever wondered how much longer until your troubles end? I have. My friend, just as God knows every hair on our head, so He knows every tear that we’ve cried too. He wouldn’t give us anything that we couldn’t handle. He is strengthening us, He is shaping us to fit His mold. We are much stronger than we think we are. GOD IS FOR US! Those who sow in tears, will reap in joy!
Entangled in the problems of all kinds? Look up! Keep your eyes on the Lord. He will deliver you. Trust Him. His Love for you is stronger than the soul can hope and the words can express. Your solution is found in Him. Get on your knees and pray.
Keep your heart cheerful. Do things you love. Enjoy small moments. Make memories. Don’t hold grudges. Forgive. Let go of pride, anger, envy. Those will eat away your heart and make you sick. Let Jesus handle your troubles; give it all to Him. He WILL heal your heart.
