I love my 2015 planner.
I love everything about it. Seriously, everything.
It brings me joy to operate from it, and refer to it often throughout my day. Jotting down notes, appointments, tasks, points I want to remember, things I want to accomplish.
A few minutes ago I glanced down at the bottom of today’s page, and today’s quote is timely.
“What you can’t go through, God will help you fly over.” – Woodrow Kroll
I think back to a time in my life, not that long ago, when I was immersed in an incredible amount of what I call “yuck.” It was the most difficult time of my life thus far. But as I hung on for dear life… to God, His Word, and His promises, it was as if He slowly lifted me out of the pit of yuck, and helped me to soar to higher ground.
He reached down and drew me from the deep, dark hole where I was stranded,
mired in the muck and clay.
With a gentle hand, He pulled me out to set me down safely on a warm rock;
He held me until I was steady enough to continue the journey again. Psalm 40:2
The last sentence of Psalm 40:2 warms my heart. He held me until I was steady enough to continue the journey again. Oh, how I love that. Even more than my planner.
Friend, you may be going through the toughest time of your life. You don’t know how you’re going to make it through. Questions don’t seem to have answers. Life doesn’t make sense. Cling to Psalm 40:2, and cling to God’s hand as He reaches down and pulls you out of this yuck. He’s going to hold you until you’re steady enough to continue.
That’s some powerful truth for tough times. May it fill your heart, your spirit, your day. Allow it to flow through you into the lives of others to fill them.
May this encourage your heart, and help you reach up to meet the hand He’s extending to you today.
