What's On My Mind: KNOCKED OFF YOUR FEET?
God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. (Psalm 46:1)
I've discovered something musician Jeremy Camp made clear in a song he wrote after the death of his wife: When you are knocked off your feet by life's difficulties, remember that "God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble" (Ps. 46:1). That's reason enough to get back up again. Camp described his struggle in the song called "Understand." He asked, "Why don't I get back on my feet again." And he recognized that he could because "I know You understand it all."
When trouble knocks us down, we can look up. God is there. He understands and cares. It's not easy, but we can trust Him to help us get back on our feet again.
Lift up your eyes, despairing one, the Lord your help will be; you have a friend in heaven who cheers, and calms the troubled sea.
THERE IS NO PLACE WHERE EARTH'S SORROWS ARE FELT MORE THAN IN HEAVEN.
