If you could see my calendar for this month your head would spin. My head spins just thinking about it! It would be so easy to through the little black thing against the wall and just freak out. Scream, run around the house, then curl up in a dark corner and cry, wondering how in the world I am going to get through it all. And trust me, I’ve come within a hair of doing just that. Why is it in these times I forget, so very quickly, that I’m not alone? Here I am carrying this heavy burden, each step more difficult than the last, dragging myself through the craziness of life. But all the while, a peaceful Voice is calling me to be still and let The One who never tires wipe away my cares.
How soon I forget.
And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee: for thou, LORD, hast not forsaken them that seek thee. ~Psalm 9:10
In the midst of maddens, in the overwhelming sweep of the tide, He is there waiting to catch me. In the heaviness of life, the crushing weight of hurt, He is there holding me to His heart. In the chaos and confusion, in the overstuffed schedules, He is there waiting to release my yoke.
I sought the LORD, and he found me, and delivered me from all my fears. ~Psalms 34:4
It’s in these times we must not, at all costs, let our quiet time with The Lord fall through the cracks. It is there we will find peace in the crazy. The joy of His percents, the hope of deliverance, the peace of knowing we are never alone, and the reassurance He will not take us through more than we can bear.
Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the LORD. ~Palms 31:24
Oh Lord, help me not forget: You are the peace in my crazy, the joy in my heartache, my ever present friend. My burden is heavy, but I know You are there helping my lift it.
The LORD liveth; and blessed be my rock; and let the God of my salvation be exalted. ~Psalm 18:46
