God alone

Let your unfailing love surround us, LORD, for our hope is in you alone. (Psalm 33:22)

I am being attacked. No, not physically, but emotionally and spiritually.

Where do I go? Who do I have?

I want to lean on friends, loved ones. I want to eat all the food that will give comfort. I want to collapse in a soggy heap. I feel like wandering around asking if anyone cares. Being a WAHM limits my exposure to adults who can see my emotional need and tend to me.

But maybe I’m not to be tended to. Maybe I need to learn how to lean on my Father. Maybe I need to put my hope in Him. Alone.

But I am trusting you, O Lord,
saying, “You are my God!”
My future is in your hands.
Rescue me from those who hunt me down relentlessly.
Let your favor shine on your servant.
In your unfailing love, rescue me. (Psalm 31:14-16)

One thought on “God alone

  1. Hey LP, This really helped me and kind of scared me when God was really cleaning house with me. The comfort is that HE loves me so much that HE would tell me before, comfort me during and use me after!

    Heb 12:26-29 “His voice that time shook the earth to its foundations; this time–he’s told us this quite plainly–he’ll also rock the heavens: “One last shaking (or yet again – BK), from top to bottom, stem to stern.”
    The phrase “one last shaking” means a thorough housecleaning, getting rid of all the historical and religious junk so that the unshakable essentials stand clear and uncluttered.

    Do you see what we’ve got? An unshakable kingdom! And do you see how thankful we must be? Not only thankful, but brimming with worship, deeply reverent before God. For God is not an indifferent bystander.
    He’s actively cleaning house…,”

    in prayer with you and for you…BK
