How Did I Get Here?
Scripture Reference: Psalm 88:9
“My eye waste away because of affliction”

Life can sometimes throw us a curve ball. We often feel like we’re in total chaos, and we don’t know which way to turn. We at times, carry the weight of ten people on our shoulders, and relief doesn’t appear to be coming any time soon. The tedious day-to-day routine is enough to drive us to the edge, and the stress of our job is just enough to send us over that same edge! Our relationships with our significant others have been strained for a while, but we really don’t have time to worry about them, because we have so many other issues that seem to take priority. We have tried for quite some time to keep it under control, but it has gotten so out of control that we feel ourselves buckling under the weight of all of our issues. We need to stop and think…”How did we get here?”

As we go about our daily living, we have a tendency to forget about God. Not that we mean to, it just happens. We are so focused on the tasks at hand that our minds shift from the “One” that will sustain us through the storms of life. When we forget the Word and omit time in His presence, “this is how we got there”! The issues of life have us in a place of frustration, depression and vulnerable! That’s why we need to read, believe and do the Word of God on a daily basis. It’s important that God’s Word becomes “who we are”, so much so that when people see you, they see God. For the Psalm writer says “when my soul is full of troubles, and my life draws near to the grave…I stretch my hands to You”!

New Normal: Circumstances come upon us daily in which only God can help us. In those moments we have no choice but to call out to Him, and then wait for His answer. When we find ourselves in chaos, confusion, and feeling like we are about buckle under the weight of the world, we must remember to read the Word daily, pray, reach out to God, and watch Him do the miraculous!
