When you’re in the dark.

“The entrance of Your words gives light; it gives understanding to the simple.” Psalms 119:130

I’m in the dark
no light peering in
I cry, Jesus save me
Jesus help me
Jesus rescue me
Jesus can you hear me?
I’m calling out to you
I can’t feel my legs
they aren’t running like they use to
I can’t feel my hands
they aren’t reaching out like they use to
and I can’t feel my mouth
it’s not speaking boldly like it use to
paralyzed by fear
stuck with no idea
of how to escape
but in this despairing place
I hear you say
You are my shepherd
I will not want
you make me to lie down in green pastures
you lead me beside still waters
you restore my soul
your words become mine
your words
whispered from my lips
become mine
and slowly
my hope rises
as your words give me life
all was dark
but you turned on the light
with your word

When everything looks dark around you and no light is coming in, God will say a word that will lighten your darkness. The entrance of His word gives light. Let hope rise in your heart as God whispers His word into your ears. That word may be, “No weapon.” It may be, “Be still and know that I’m God.” It may be, “I am your rock and your firm foundation.” Or it may be, “Trust Me.”

Whatever God has spoken to you, hold on to it for dear life. It will be light for you and will help you see your way out. It will carry you to the safest place you can ever be, called the “Perfect Will of God”.

Prayer: Thank you Father for speaking life into my heart. I grab hold of it and won’t let go. Save me. Heal me. Deliver me. Rescue me. You are my loving Father who gives light when things are dark. I love you and I love your life giving word. In Jesus name, Amen.

Today God your words showed up in my life this like fresh morning dew. Father God help me to hold so tightly to your garments. Because you see Father you spoke directly to me. My legs are numb, my face is numb, my thinking isn’t clear, I walk funny, I am not the same women that I used to be.

  11. My husband was hospitalized back in 2014 and he was very ill, one hospital sent him to another; he used all the oxygen bottles that were on board the ambulance and had started on the oxygen that ambulances have, this was only a 10 minute trip. Finally got to the hospital and into the ICU where he stayed for about 7 days. One day one particular heart doctor came in and said through pacemaker needed to come out l got real scared, l went down the hall and then l heard, “no fear”, and immediately there was no fear. Hubby today is fine and still has the pacemaker. To God goes the glory!
