It was like someone turned out the lights The darkness was thick as mud. I couldn't see my hand in front of my face. When I turned to look behind me, it was like a cliff where someone had snatched the past out of my life. Even the ground under my feet seemed to be shifting like quicksand.
I called out for help but my words seemed to bounce off the darkness as in a canyon.There was no one around me. I reached out to find a friend or even just something solid to hang on to but there was nothing. My arms were flailing all about, but the more I moved the more the sinking ground sucked me into the abyss.
Then I hear a still small voice saying "Be still, be still". My mind knew that I needed to stop and get control, but my body refused to listen as arms and feet flew in every direction. I couldn't stop. I could only cry out for help that seemed to never come.
Have you ever felt like this? I imagine most of us have one time or another. I recently found myself fighting extreme pain from Fibromyalgia and Rheumatoid Arthritis.
God has been helping me keep my eyes on Him, but we have a ways to go. I'm still waiting for God to move on my behalf, but I am learning how to be still. I thought maybe some of you might want to join me in learning to Wait on God and Trust His Timing. Are you willing? Come and go with me. I would love the company.
