Ups & Downs
Posted: June 23, 2017
Life is full of ups and downs. But when we're in the downs, we forget about the ups. We forget about what God has done in our lives... we forget that he is and has been and always will be faithful. He will always be there with us and for us, and we can trust him with our lives. We can trust him with the ups and downs. And we can for sure trust him to pull us up from down in the dumps and put us on the mountaintop of his love and faithfulness.
I waited patiently for the Lord to help me,
and he turned to me and heard my cry.
He lifted me out of the pit of despair,
out of the mud and the mire.
He set my feet on solid ground
and steadied me as I walked along.
He has given me a new song to sing,
a hymn of praise to our God.
Many will see what he has done and be amazed.
They will put their trust in the Lord.
- Isaiah 40:1-3 (NLT)
Lord, you know about all of my good days and bad days. But I thank you God, because you are faithful and you are good -- always. Lord, help me to see your faithfulness and your love and your goodness today, and every day, no matter how up or down the days are. In Jesus' name, amen.
