Bet that title got your attention! Honestly, the last 30 days have been a blur for me and that is pretty much my sentiment right now. In the midst of stress, worry, turmoil, joy, pain, happiness etc I have wondered often if the psalmist David might have raised his hands up to heaven and declared “what the hell?”
I’ve spent the last 6-8 months praising the Lord for His timing and just for giving me such clarity in decisions with school and working and just with general parenting and wife-ing. I am now beginning to realize it was to prepare me for this past month. Without going into any detail, our life has been wrought with many decisions, many scary unknowns and honestly not much clarity here lately. The Lord is teaching me about
abundant trust and
reminding me minute by minute that
His mercy is forever perfect and unfailing.
But for now, like the Psalmist I cry:
2 Be merciful to me, LORD, for I am faint;
O LORD, heal me, for my bones are in agony.
3 My soul is in anguish.
How long, O LORD, how long?
4 Turn, O LORD, and deliver me;
save me because of your unfailing love.
9 The LORD has heard my cry for mercy;
the LORD accepts my prayer.
~from Psalm 6
May God meet me and you in whatever place you are and with grace fill us with His steadfast love.
