My heart and mind reads truth over and over and I fight to make sense of the divine scriptures.
I come to Him weary and burden. Exhausted and fatigued from wrestling with the truth and promises of God with circumstances.
I read verses like these,
Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you your heart’s desires. Psalm 37:4
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. Proverbs 3:5
And I don’t get it. It seems so simple–cut and dry. Yet, when tested, its complex and difficult.
I battle letting go. Just resting in who He is.
I believe. I stand on the Word. It is my solid rock.
But there are times, like this week, when my heart feels like it’s sinking.
Engulfed by sorrow I contend with scripture.
My head aches because it’s makes no sense to me.
It’s then I have to let go and cry out.
1 Hear my cry, O God;
listen to my prayer.
2 From the ends of the earth I call to you,
I call as my heart grows faint;
lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
4 Let me live forever in your sanctuary,
safe beneath the shelter of your wings!
Do you relate? Have you wrestled with scripture? I’d love to hear from you!
