The One to Turn Too

Wednesday, May 11, 2011

A devotional thought from Annabel Gillham:


I don't know where you are this morning in your emotions and your thoughts, but perhaps this will help you verbalize your feelings to Him:
Hear my cry, O God;
Give heed to my prayer.

From the end of the earth I call to Thee

When my heart is faint;

Lead me to the rock that is higher than I.

For Thou hast been a refuge for me,

A tower of strength against the enemy.

Let me dwell in Thy tent forever;

Let me take refuge in the

shelter of Thy wings.

- Psalm 61:1-4
* * *
O God, please hear me when I cry out to You,
please listen as I pour out my heart.
It doesn't matter where I am--
how far away from home I might be.
You are the One I turn to
when things just seem to be too much for me--
when I'm fighting anxiety
or depression, fear or anything
that causes me to become discouraged.
O Lord, cause me to look to You,
for You are so strong,
so stable, so powerful and wise.
You have always been the One to whom I turn for
solace, for strength, for understanding--You have
always been the Source of my strength against
the satanic forces in this world.
Thank You, dear Father, that
I am seated with You--
secure in You
strong in You
sheltered in Your arms and hidden beneath Your wings
I'm in a slump, but this devotional was just what the doctor ordered. I hope this encourages you too, no matter what you're struggling with in life.
It's almost the weekend! May we all relax and have some fun.
