Save me, O God, for the waters have come up to my neck.
I sink in the miry depths, where there is no foothold.
I have come into the deep waters; the floods engulf me. Psalm 69:1-2
We’ve all been to this place. We’ve been to the place where we feel like we’re drowning and can’t hold on for even one more minute.
Finances. Relationships. Work. Bosses. Inlaws. Kids. Loneliness. Bills. Normal, everyday stresses.
Some reading this may in the midst of these kinds of situations right now.
You don’t know where to turn or what to do. Your prayers don’t seem to go higher than the ceiling. Sleep, chocolate, or binge eating doesn’t help. No one around you seems to understand. No one seems to care.
In fact, you’re probably thinking ‘no one knows what I’m going through!’ Well, King David went through it. Read those verses again. He’s in big trouble. He cannot take it any longer. He is, as they say, at his wit’s end.
Brothers and Sisters, hang on. I know you feel like you’re alone, but you aren’t. We ALL go through these periods. We’d be lying if we say we didn’t. Keep praying. Keep seeking the Lord’s strength. It’s what got you this far, and He’s not letting you go. Confide in someone what you’re struggling with. There are people in your circle who do care about you. They may lift you up as you have lifted them up.
