Up from the Pit

Psalm 40:2 He lifted me out of the pit of despair, out of the mud and the mire. He set my feet on solid ground and steadied me as I walked along.——

Just as my mother and grandparents held my hands as I began to toddle a lifetime ago, the Holy Spirit steadies me today and forever as He walks along beside me. 

I praise the Lord that He was willing to reach down into that filthy, slimy, muddy pit where I was stuck from all of life’s storms. I thought I would be consumed by the pit. Surely I would sink deeper and deeper into the pit that would consume me, never to escape. 

That was not God’s plan. It was not His purpose for me, and it is not His purpose for you! Dear Sister, cry out to the Lord. Then allow Him to save you. Stop believing that you aren’t worth the effort for someone to dig you out. God loves you! He loves you so much that upon your cry for Him to save you…our Father will reach down from heaven and lift you out of the pit of despair. 

Dear Sister, He saved me. He will save you too. All you have to do is ask Him.
