Stability in the Storm

Are your circumstances causing you to wonder about God’s involvement in your life?  What do you do when things seem to go from bad to worse?  How do you keep going in moments when all you hope for seems to disappear?

If these questions seem deeply familiar, it’s because they resonate within all of us at one time or another.  Read the psalms.  David, the one described as a man after God’s own heart, writes with aching realism.  In one verse he touts gigantic faith, and then in another, he wrestles with feeling distant and far away from his Creator.

So when you feel your faith wavering, remember that you’re not the only one who’s felt that way.  But don’t take that as permission to dwell where you are either.  Shortly before His crucifixion, Jesus reminded His disciples how to face our doubts and conquer them.  “Trust in God. Trust also in Me,” He said. When circumstances shift and change with wild ferocity, take a moment to check your focus.  Adjust your gaze away from how your situation appears, but instead, anchor it firmly on God who promises “to never leave you nor forsake you.”
