When The Way Is Long
So when the way is long and unending and the night lasts oh ‘ so forever ‘ ~ to throw in the towel seems awfully tempting doesn’t it? To run and forget it all just seems so much easier than dealing with the ‘stuff’ on your plate. You can run to the farthest room ~ store or the farthest park on the planet, but you know that your night will follow you! It will even beat you there and conveniently hang the welcome sign just to make sure you feel at home with your troubles. 😦
So ~ I guess running isn’t going to do it for us. I guess when the night goes on forever, we have to face whatever it is that makes it so dark, so alone and so empty. Perhaps it’s jealousy that gnaws, fears that stalk, worry and anxiety that tear you up emotionally, perhaps prayers that go unanswered ~ these all need to find peace in the dark nights and our lonely, but oh so sweet and beautiful souls need to catch a glorious vision of a God who made us and yes, a God who really does care and is in full-out control, even when it seems like He’s not. He’s promised never to leave or forsake His own and because He was faithful yesterday, we can trust Him today for that. Are you trusting through the dark ~ the long night ~ the unending unanswered prayer? Don’t fight and don’t run but simply stand still and see the salvation of our Lord.
Exodus 14: 13
“And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD, which he will shew to you to-day: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen to-day, ye shall see them again no more for ever.”
“Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”
