Are you in need of rescue? Feeling neglected ashore of the life you wished for? Seeking a life preserver from the life you’ve let fall apart?
Friends, I often find myself longing for help too. Life has tossed me a time or two, and the residual liquid that jumps up and chokes my lungs without notice can wear on my resolve.
So what are we to do as we hold back the tears of our hurting hearts?
Sometimes chips look really tempting. Or scanning our credit cards. Or clicking on Netflix.
But each time I reach for one of these empty idols, I remember that I have more to gain from going to Him than stuffing my mouth, my wardrobe, or my mind with distraction. That the hole I feel was meant for Him to fill.
That when I’m in need, He will strengthen and help me (Isaiah 41:10).
That He stands ready to offer us hope in the face of fear. (Jeremiah 29:11).
That He is our ever present help when trouble strikes (Psalm 46:1).
Christ is all the help we will ever need, anywhere, any time, and under any circumstances. Let’s let Him in and drop the chips, friends.
