You know the feeling. Just pick the word that most aptly describes you right now:
Do you know these feelings? At one time or another I think that one of these words could have described the way I felt. Does one of these words describe the reality of your life right now?
Today, I was reading through a portion of Deuteronomy 33 in which Moses gives some parting words to the tribes of Israel. I love these encouraging words:
There is no one like the God of Jeshurun, who rides on the heavens to help you and on the clouds in his majesty. The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms. (33:26-27)
Perhaps in spite of the way we feel, we actually have security and safety because God is holding us with his everlasting arms. Maybe he really is a refuge we can count on regardless. Perhaps when we are feeling as if we are losing our joy and our grip on things, maybe we can turn to God and savor what it means to be carried in his everlasting arms.
