“. . . Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account.”
Everyday it seems I’m climbing a mountain against my will. I stand at the foot of my mountain of trouble wondering if I’ll ever make it to the top. Just when I get my footing, I slip on razor sharp words that rip me in two. Breathless, I continue my climb only to fall onto a past I thought I had left behind. In terrible agony, I drench in self-pity, convinced I’ll never know God’s love.
During my treacherous climb, I failed to realize God is with me every step of the way. I can’t see him. Sometimes, I can’t feel him. But he’s there. “For your ways are in full view of the Lord, and he examines all your paths.” (Proverbs 5:21)
Prayer: Lord, no matter what my circumstance, help me see your glory.
Think: How did God bring you out of your troubles? When did you notice his presence?
