“Save me, God, for the water has risen to my neck. I have sunk in deep mud, and there is no footing; I have come into deep waters, and a flood sweeps over me. I am weary from my crying; my throat is parched. My eyes fail, looking for my God.”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭69:1-3‬ ‭HCSB

Who HASN’T been here? The stress level is up your nose, and you are about to drown. The kids are fighting each other or others. The bills are greater than the bank account. Health issues. The boss is breathing fire down your neck. WHERE IS GOD?!

The ironic thing is that we don’t doubt God’s presence when we are coasting along when things are mostly smooth. We are “#blessed.”  As independent creatures we often have to be taken to that point of having zero control, no footing and barely able to breathe to fully rely on God as our only source. This spot spiritually is exactly where God wants us when life is not so challenging. He wants us to recognize that no matter the season He truly IS our only source.

Are you willing to let go of self-reliance and let creator God take over, fill the voids, and guide your next step? This is the #blessedlife.
