Out of the Pit
Good evening all. I have been doing a daily word study and reading through the Psalms this month. I can not describe how much I have been helped. I plan to write some of the lessons I have learned these past couple of weeks searching the scriptures to learn more about my Lord. But what I really wanted to share with ya’ll is something I wrote in my journal almost 9 years ago. I was looking for a clean sheet of paper in one of my journals and there it was!!! I was taken back to the darkest time of my life and saw two paragraphs that I SO wish I had reminded myself of daily and stayed completely focused on!
The simple words were these…TRIALS MUST AND WILL BEFALL ; BUT WITH THE HUMBLE FAITH TO SEE, LOVE INSCRIPTED UPON THEM ALL. THIS IS HAPPINESS TO ME.
BELOVED, DO NOT TRY TO GET OUT OF A DARK PLACE EXCEPT IN GOD’S TIME AND GOD’S WAY. THE TIME OF TROUBLE IS MEANT TO TEACH YOU LESSONS THAT YOU SORELY NEED.
I am out of the PIT!!! Thank the Lord. It took 9 years though. Because I did not want to wait and learn what my Father wanted to teach me. So now I am all ears. I hunger now for The Word and can not get enough of His Wisdom. I see how wretched I am. And I beg for Him to KEEP ME BROKEN. He is healing me and I am thankful.
