The Righteous Stand Firm
Where were you? I'm sure we all remember where we were on that fateful day. When we heard that a plane hit the tower. Then when we heard that the tower fell.
I remember John calling to check on me. We were not yet engaged at that time, & I was impressed with the care he was giving my heart over this national tragedy.
I know these past 10 years has had "some" healing effect on the victim's families. But I also know they still ache. I know their hearts still hurt as they see time marching on without their loved ones.
King David felt the exact same way....
Psalm 55:5-8 (ESV)
Fear & trembling come upon me,
and horror overwhelms me.
And I say, "Oh that I had wings like a dove!
I would fly away and be at rest;
yes, I would wander far away;
I would lodge in the wilderness;
I would hurry to find shelter from
the raging wind and tempest.
But look where God leads him to during these very raw & real feelings...
Psalm 55:22 (ESV)
Cast your burdens on the Lord
and He will sustain you;
He will never permit
the righteous to be moved.
Today - let's all stand firm in the Lord. He will sustain us all through these days of heavy burdens.
