Psalm 55:22 AMPLIFIED
Cast your burden on the Lord [releasing the weight of it]
and He will sustain you;
He will never allow the [consistently] righteous
to be moved (made to slip, fall, or fail).(A)
Do you ever read a scripture and it lead you to a prayer like this:
“God, that’s a great promise, but I’m obviously not doing so well. Could you, like, bail me out? I’m crumping with this thing, unfortunately. I’d like to think I’m strong, but I guess I’m weak. Darn it. Help.”
Has that kind of prayer happened with you enough times, and has he rescued you enough times that you know you can trust him with your weakness?
If I know one thing, it’s that He respects our weakness.
And I know that I love that about Him.
He stretches us…and he bails us out.
I love that…I really do.
And I don’t mind being stretched.
And I don’t mind submitting.
But, sometimes, I can’t do it any more. I can’t even submit any more.
I’m just give out, done, spent, out of gas, crumping.
So…here I am…awaiting my rescue.
I know he’s sure to come…
right on time.
And he doesn’t care too much what I look like in the meantime.
And I’m sure glad you don’t.
Until then…I’m holdin’ on…
like most of us do on any given day with something or other.
Keep holdin’ on!
