There are some days when you don’t get to sit down, rest, or take a break. There are some days you have to remind yourself to breath. Those are crazy days. This blog is for those days.
My life has been hectic the last couple months. I won’t bore you with the details, after all everyone is busy. Simply put, our schedule is packed and we are transitioning into a new home. Somedays it feels like I am walking on one of those playground suspension bridges when a fat kid jumps on the end of it. I’m doing all I can to keep my legs from bucking under me.
Have you had some of those days? Of course you have - you are a human and you are a woman. So let me share something God gave me recently to help me.
Psalm 32 - that was God’s gift to me. Before I get into the verses, let me make a point. When you are having a crazy day where everything is piling upon your shoulders, don’t look around you for your help. Don’t run to Facebook, the medicine cabinet, the wine cabinet or your secret stash of chocolate. Run to God’s voice. He is Maker of your days and Master of your hope. He is your Help. So run first to him.
1 Blessed is the one whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered. 2 Blessed is the man against whom the Lord counts no iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no deceit.
3 For when I kept silent, my bones wasted away through my groaning all day long. 4 For day and night your hand was heavy upon me; my strength was dried up as by the heat of summer.
5 I acknowledged my sin to you, and I did not cover my iniquity; I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the Lord,” and you forgave the iniquity of my sin. 6 Therefore let everyone who is godly offer prayer to you at a time when you may be found; surely in the rush of great waters, they shall not reach him.
7 You are a hiding place for me; you preserve me from trouble; you surround me with shouts of deliverance.
8 I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my eye upon you.
9 Be not like a horse or a mule, without understanding, which must be curbed with bit and bridle, or it will not stay near you.
10 Many are the sorrows of the wicked, but steadfast love surrounds the one who trusts in the Lord. 11 Be glad in the Lord, and rejoice, O righteous, and shout for joy, all you upright in heart!
So ladies, go ahead and praise God loudly in the middle of your crazy days. It will make your worries fade and your earthly problems will pale in the intense light of eternity’s blaze.
