Psalm 23:2 KJV “He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.”
This has been a long, challenging two weeks. I have nearly given up over the past two weeks. Do you know what it’s like to want to just sit down in the midst of all the gunk and junk, and just cry?
When I find myself overwhelmed like that, I know that I’m holding onto things that are too big for me, but just right for God. Sometimes, I forget that He is there for me – an ever present help in the time of trouble… So, I stay surrounded by the gunk and junk that life throws my way. As if I have to…
I think I have written before, how much I love being near the water. It’s comforting, peaceful. Staring into the distance, across the water, I once again dream… Laying down and watching the clouds pass by overhead, takes me to a place where I feel free to breathe.
I think king David understood this – a peace that comes with the appreciation of God’s creation.
There is nothing like looking over a still body of water and to admire the glass like reflection of the sky. I cannot explain the joy that bubbles up in me, walking along the shore, with the sand between my toes, knowing that I am not alone, it is He who is leading me…
In this rough, past two weeks, I found a place of serenity, where I could surrender completely to God. Walking along the still waters, knowing He was leading me back to where I longed to be.
