Feb 1, 2011
I feel like everything is closing in on me...the tunnel has collapsed and I am trapped in my grief once again.
I cannot see light anymore...I must once again try to dig myself out... back into the light of my Gods face...I know He is behind all this rubble that has enclosed me and with His help I can dig my way out, one rock at a time...its like being trapped in a mine miles below the earth...knowing that those on the outside are trying to get you out...but you must wait and try to survive until they get to you.
February is upon me and I have a huge list of things that normally I could handle. I think because of the anxiety of the one year anniversary of Mell’s home going...I just can’t cope with big or little small things right now...
So this past weekend I took off for the mountains...the first part of our trip was uphill and very difficult because of the snow and Ice that we encountered. We made it to the top of an observation deck with a beautiful view and a beautiful day to say the least.
We went down to Wilson Gap and camped for the night.
Then the unexpected happened...warm weather...that was the mercy and grace of my God!
That night it was cold but I was ready for it...so I kept very warm.
But are we ever ready for the things that come unexpectedly ?
No we are not...but I believe we can be somewhat ready for them...
We can know God and know His word...so when the storms of life come we have Him to hold on to! Like I feel I am trapped in a mine...but I also know He is there digging with me to get me out!
This is how I believe we can be ready for the storms of Life:
Matthew 13:23 But the one who received the seed that fell on good soil is the man who hears the word and understands it.
He produces a crop, yielding a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown.
24 “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. 26 But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. 27 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.”
Know Him and know His word...Hear His words and put them to practice...build your house upon the ROCK!
“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
