If it is true that trouble comes in waves, then I have been buried by a typhoon lately.
Every move I make lands me in another hole.
Every turn I take runs me into another wall.
Every decision I come up with turns out to be wrong.
What a night mare I have been living!
I have turned to others for help and advice, they left me feeling more desperate than before. I looked for answers in books, magazines, on radio and TV. Everywhere I turned led me to a dead end.
Then I Turned To You.
What refreshment You brought me.
Confidence replaced my concern.
Hope appeared in my heart from nowhere.
I don't know why I didn't run to You in the first place. You have always offered help in my troubles. Thank You for carrying me on Your shoulders through the storm, and shielding me from the wind and the rains.
The LORD Answers;
Consider Me a safe place where you can hide, and I will protect you
from trouble and surround you with my songs of deliverance.
I am your shepherd who will not leave you in need.
I will help you lie down in flourishing fields;
I will show you quiet waters and refresh your soul.
I have told you these things so that you can find peace in Me.
In this world you will have trouble, but here is my promise to you;
I have overcome the world!
I have given My angels charge over you.
In their hands they shall lift you up.
