There’s a hollow where I’ve fallen At the bottom, no water to drink
I have hurt both mind and spirit In the depths I now do sink
For betrayal, my own kindred Has left me torn and weak
Til near to death my bosom The only company I seek
Then lo, I behold a glimmer Of light approaching me
Tis true even in my sorrows My Savior now I see
We are no strangers to failure and times of hardship. Life throws many curveballs along the way and those curveballs can arrive unexpectedly in the most negative light. In result, we also often find ourselves alone and isolated with our own thoughts while pushing others away from us. However, when we are enclosed and trapped in this deep pit of despair and hopelessness, that is when we have to look up and seek our Heavenly Father for guidance and direction. During this morning’s Morning Dew, AUHS Founder Pastor Gregory Johnson stated that when we find ourselves situated in a deep pit, there is no other direction but to look up. Even as the pit becomes deeper and deeper, we have no other choice BUT to look up. And where we look up is where God is. He is looking down at us with His hand reached out to us, so that we may escape the pit that is causing us despair and hopelessness. Genesis 50:20 states:
“But as for you, you meant evil against me; but God meant it for good, in order to bring it about as it is this day, to save many people alive.”
So, let this statement become engraved and preserved in your hearts. God will most definitely help us get out of that pit. There is no doubt about it. By doing so, we have to continually look up and see Him to believe.
May God Bless You All ~
