Endless Rivers

of Hope

Separating topics is not easy. Not on the blog, anyway. I did some tinkering and there is no logical way to do it. I think that going to regular A.A. meetings (and looking to be of service) was the real STEP that I needed to take, and I’m doing that. At least I’m gaining clarity!

Anyway, it’s been four whole days since I started studying the word TRUST, and I want to share my first day. I chose Psalm 40, verse 4.

Blessed is the man who makes the Lord his trust, who does not turn to the proud, to those who go astray after a lie!

What REALLY struck (and amazed) me were verses 1-3.

I waited patiently for the Lord; He inclined to me and heard my cry. He drew me up from the pit of destruction, out of the miry bog, and set my feet upon a rock, making my steps secure. He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God. Many will see and fear, and put their trust in the Lord.

Can I relate to that?!? He pulled me from the PIT of alcoholism, made my steps secure, and put a new song in my mouth? Yes! Yes indeed. As I said… this word study started off with a beautiful bang. A great reminder of what He’s already done for me. I have a renewed sense of gratitude these days!

I SEE now- how easy it is to get distracted. Thinking TOO much about what’s next, and losing sight of what’s GREAT… TODAY, right NOW!!

Love always, laugh often, and enjoy every moment.

    You have a beautiful weekend as well!. I love this, “He pulled me from the PIT of alcoholism, made my steps secure, and put a new song in my mouth?” A new song in my mouth??? That’s is beautiful. Amen to that! He can pull us out of anything if we ask in faith. Thank you. Great way to start the weekend. Have a blessed day!!!

    The words of Psalm 103 were the first He put on my heart when I came to faith in Him:
    “Bless the Lord, oh my soul and all that is within me,
    Bless His Holy name.
    Bless the Lord, oh my soul,
    and forget not all His benefits.
    Who forgives all your iniquity,
    who heals all your diseases,
    who redeems your life from the Pit,
    who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy….”

    As often as He does these things for me is as often as I forget.
    But He never lets go of me.
    Trust is still a challenge every day.
    Thank you Janet (as always) for bringing me to reflect on my trust in Him.

  4. Thank you for sharing your walk of faith! Trust was one of those issues that took me some time to accept! God’s Holy Spirit lives within the new me? Trusting that God will be with in the middle of every storm. Trusting I can talk with God about everything? We can! God simply wants us to draw nearer to Him each day and make time for Him regardless of what we are facing!
