Scripture: Psalms 61:1-4
Topic: Breaking News
I failed to get a perfect picture to go with my topic today. I’m not sure if it’s because I’m just too overwhelmed with all that’s going on around me that I don’t have the strength Google search for today’s post.
My lack of enthusiasm today is mainly due to the breaking news received over the weekend which I won’t go into detail about it. However I can say that some news will leave one feeling helpless and inadequate.
I had no other place to find strength except the book I have come to depend on. And I believe it’s probably the only book of instruction, motivation, encouragement and knowledge I can ever rely on…The Holy Bible.
You see it’s one thing to have news to share, it’s another thing to find a way to break the news to the one it affects the most. Caught in between watching my husband in pain and going home to give courage to my kids with a smile and comfort. I find myself in the bedroom with mixed emotions. Reality is numbing me but the situation calls for my strength and faith.
Paging through scripture, I’m glued in the Praises by King David.
O God, listen to my cry! Hear my prayer! From the ends of the earth, I cry to you for help when my heart is overwhelmed. Lead me to the towering rock of safety, for you are my safe refuge, a fortress where my enemies cannot reach me. Let me live forever in your sanctuary, safe beneath the shelter of your wings!
Psalms 61:1-4 NLT
One beautiful thing about running to God is that I don’t have to break news of my despair to Him. He already knows my heart. He has examined me, He knows me, (Psalms 139)
I’m overwhelmed yes. But I’m finding strength to face each days report under the shelter of His wings.
