No longer silent...

“I would seek God, and to God would I commit my cause.” “Is anything too hard for the Lord?”—Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him, and he will act.—Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.—Casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you...I love the Lord, because he has heard my voice and my pleas for mercy...

The past several months have been rough. This is due not so much to circumstances as my own sinful responses and tendencies. I'll share more on that later, but for today...a bit of encouragement and hope.

God is a speaking God, a pursuing God, a loving God, an active God and a victorious God. He tells us to come to Him, just as we are, and find help and healing and transformation. His promise is that we will be like Him...we will be changed from glory to glory. In Him, we can and will overcome that which is overcoming us.

This week, by His grace and the enabling of His spirit, I took him up on this promise. I stopped wallowing in hopeless silence and sinful salve that only added pain and cried out to God for help.

And, He answered...

I love the Lord, because he has heard my voice and my pleas for mercy. Because he inclined his ear to me, therefore I will call on him as long as I live. (From Daily Light)
