Why are you cast down, O my soul, and why are you in turmoil within me? Hope in God, for I shall again praise him, my salvation and my God.
Hold onto your hope in God, don’t give up now – He is still by your side! I was asking God this morning if this was really what I was supposed to be writing on this morning, I know some people get tired of hearing this sort of message but God reassured me that He has too many people out there that are hurting today and He is determined to get through to them that He loves them and He cares and He is working on it. He loves you like a Daddy loves His little girl and He is wanting to walk with you and hold your hand all the way to the other side.
I remember as a little girl we used to love to go to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan to see the incredible color of the leaves on the trees every Fall, it was just so beautiful and the color was extraordinary! There was a bridge that ran over a small valley full of trees loaded with orange, red and yellow leaves, it was breathtaking and I was overwhelmingly afraid of heights. My brother was not afraid and often had to be told to be careful but I could barely handle peering over from a distance. As soon as my Dad would pick me up though I could be at the very edge of the bridge looking over and I felt as safe as could be! That is exactly how God wants you to feel today! He’s got you! He isn’t going to let go, He’s got you! He loves you and He wants you to see the beauty of what He has in store for you but you have to trust Him!
Hold onto your faith this morning and allow God to work in you and in your situation knowing that – He’s got you! He isn’t going to let you fall or allow this situation to devour you – He has better things ahead for you and He wants you to be able to rejoice in that fact because He is your God and your salvation! There are better days ahead, hold on!
