Messed Up World
So some days are just messy aren’t they? The whole worlds in a mess and so is yours! You do your best and it’s not good enough. The things you really try to make a difference in just don’t go well at all and instead of having any kind of positive impact for improvement, it’s perceived by most as going the wrong way on a one way street leaving you labelled with no sense at all. What’s up with that, other than you’re the one always in the minority, even when standing for the good? You stand for the right and end up going left and it’s all so disheartening when your only hope caves in on your already depleted emotions, leaving you feeling as dusty as the lonely road you’ve just travelled. Where to from here?
Well, I love David’s words in Psalm 31:19, “How great is your goodness, which You have stored up for those who fear You, which you bestow in the sight of men on those who take refuge in You. In the shelter of your presence you hide them from the intrigues of men; and in your dwelling you keep them safe from the strife of tongues.”
So ~ beautiful soul, take heart and find healing and reprieve in God’s refuge! Yes, even in your messed up world, He has good things in store and provides safety from the weary strife of the day, and the perilous arrows that fly at you from all directions. Yes, God has you and your “Not Good Enough” and your “Just Bad” moments when your right is left and it’s just all wrong. When no one else even cares or tries to understand or get it!
Come apart from the evil of the world and your own messy world and enter into a sweet, peace place ~ a special place designed by God for those who fear Him and stand for the right! There’s no place quite like it for finding a calm assurance that it’s all ok because He’s got it and that your ok because He’s got you and in the place of refuge He tucks hope just for His own! And those are comforting thoughts in a fragile world that seems to be torn apart with evil. Rest beautiful soul in that divine refuge and find the good things from God’s hand.
