So it’s a heavy day of just plain nothing but “All gone wrong” and everything seems so misshapen and outta sorts. Where’s the joy when the world’s in a mess and your world follows close behind in its messed up footsteps? The joy you knew yesterday took a nose-dive into the deep and it kinda seems like it’s gone forever. Here in this dreadful “now” moment, you’re emptied of even emotion and the pain of the heart can’t feel the hurt any more because it’s just too weary to feel any more. Where do you go when worries have numbed your spirit and hung your beautiful soul out to dry? Where is your refuge when your world hangs by a frazzled thread, and the thing you feared most has taken it’s position?
The Psalmist in Psalm 46: 1,2,3 tells us, “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though it’s waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging.”
Beautiful soul, when all is lost, the Psalmist goes on to bring words of hope to the reader in verses 4 and 5, “There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the Holy Place where the Most High dwells. God is within her, she will not fall; God will help her at break of day….and on to verse 10, a quiet moment with God, When He whispers into your heart, “Be still and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” He’s got it!
What comfort for your crumpled spirit, your broken world and your anxious heart! He’s got it! God is in charge and He will be exalted in the heavens and on the earth in your situation and in your circumstances if you rest “Still” in Him and know that He is sovereign over all. Rest your beautiful soul then today ~ You who are broken, and shattered in your brokenness! Just be still in Him.

What an inspiring post =) so good to be reminded of God’s trustworthiness from the Scriptures. I know for me it can be hard sometimes to know how to find joy in my suffering (James1:2, 1Pet4:12-13, Mt5:3-12), but remembering that God WILL be exalted among the nations gives me hope for the day when suffering will be no more =)
Amen! And it’s great comfort for me to know that He will be exalted on the “earth” and in my overwhelming circumstances. What comfort! That’s where our joy lies, just in knowing that!
