“I waited patiently for the Lord; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry. He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings. And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God:” (Psalms 40: 1-3)
It may seem on certain days that we are stuck in the mud, maybe sinking deeper into discouragement and despair and fear for our lives, our hopes. This fear itself may serve to paralyze us even further, cementing us to where we are, focused on our troubles, on the walls that seem to keep us locked in and limit our broader view.
But we have a recourse, a salvation. It begins with patience, persistence, and trust. God has never left you and He is greater than your fears and the world’s accusations about you and your prospects. God is always demanding that we stay true to Him. Our faith and trust in infinite good can’t be fleeting and based on human circumstances. We must be as loyal to Him, to Truth, just as His love is to us. We must be true to our Life, believe in its holy purpose and power. Life is God, eternal good.
Stay calm and patient. Listen for the tender voice of Love’s mercy and goodness. Every moment He is blessing you with more good news, an understanding that is the key to unlock the door not only to today’s human misery, but to the very heaven that is a life of Love, here and now. This inspired clarity lifts us up out of the miry clay and shows us that we have always been safely upon the rock, the Truth of Life as God’s own idea, full of faith, gratitude, and a new song of praise to Life ringing out for all to hear!
