I see things crumbling all around me: Marriages, families, churches, individuals, my country. I find myself overwhelmed trying to fix everything... no power... no ability... eyes on self.
I know what the Bible says. I may even know the right thing to say and how to Biblically encourage others. I know the truth. I know the only hope.
And yet, that void consumes me. I want to hide...
I will remember:
"My voice rises to God, and I will cry aloud; My voice rises to God, and He will hear me. In the day of my trouble I sought the Lord; In the night my hand was stretched out without weariness; My soul refused to be comforted. When I remember God, then I am disturbed; When I sigh, then my spirit grows faint. Selah.
You have held my eyelids open; I am so troubled that I cannot speak. I have considered the days of old, the years of long ago. I will remember my song in the night; I will meditate with my heart, and my spirit ponders: ...I shall remember the deeds of the LORD; Surely I will remember Your wonders of old. I will meditate on all Your work and muse on Your deeds.Your way, O God, is holy;
What god is great like our God?
You are the God who works wonders;
You have made known
Your strength among the peoples.
You have by Your power redeemed Your people...

Eyes off self
Eyes on Christ
...My only hope
