On those days when I am in a dry place it’s like nothing is being accomplished and I am in stagnant waters. It’s like being in quick-sand. I am stuck seemingly going no-where, all aspirations dissipate in the muddle. The more I attempt in my struggle, the more I sink into despair. Then as His light dawns upon my heart and mind, I remember to call out to the Lord and the peace that passes all understanding (Philippians 4: 4-7) settles my thoughts where I can trust and focus on His unconditional love.
I have to learn this lesson repeatedly about trusting in the Lord instead of my own understanding which is so limited (Proverbs 3: 5-6), Jesus is there to pull me out of the mire and place my feet once again on firm ground where I continue to learn to move forward according to His grace instead of my feeble efforts. There is a rest that only Jesus Christ can give and we find it by trusting in His love above everything else.
