A few nights ago, Aubree woke up in the darkness of night and needed to go tinkle. She was very groggy, still full of sleep and needed help. So, I got out of bed and carried her in my arms to the bathroom, lovingly waited while she "did her thing", and then cleaned her up and got her dressed again. She looked at me and said with all the drama of a two year old, "Thanks Mom! You saved my life!" Ha Ha Ha That girl is so hilarious! I love her!
You know, there are times when I wake up in the darkness of life with a need and I feel unable to help myself due to whatever circumstance I find myself in. But,God is always there to lift me up out of the situation and carry me in His arms of rescue! He is faithful and capable!
From time to time, I believe that God will allow us to sink to scary depths just so He can be glorified when He raises us up triumphantly! He allows things to happen in our lives so that He can prove to us that He can and will always take care of us. He wants us to always be grateful and appreciative of Him and His perfect grace and mercy!
So, don't fret when you find yourself faced with trouble. Don't worry when you don't see a way out of the dilemma you seem to be stuck in. Rest in God's word when you are overwhelmed with sadness and despair. He wants to use your troubles for His glory and praise. He wants you to rejoice in Him. He wants to prove to you that He loves you~ that He will not leave you. He is always faithful, just as you should be. Because after all, we have the ultimate Life Saver in Him!
"Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you." Deuteronomy 31:6
"The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet. May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you." Romans 16:20
