Our Frantic Cry in Difficulty…

I’ve visited with friends who were really going through serious times of trial, discouragement and difficulty … all happiness had evaporated, despondency had set it, things seemed hopeless…

I thought of them this morning as I read Psalm 94.18-19 from the New Living Translation…

“I cried out, ‘I am slipping!’  But your unfailing love, O Lord supported me!  When doubts filled my mind, your comfort gave me renewed hope and cheer!”

It’s a wonderful thing to discover at our lowest moment that the Lord is there!  We flail around frantically wondering if we’re going to make it – feeling like there is no hope.  A urgent cry arises in our hearts… “Help me Lord!”  And suddenly He’s there! … He supports and helps us! … And marvel of marvels, we make it!  Praise the Lord?  Ever have it happen?  I have!
