Friday Matters-May 6, 2022
Psalm 130:1; “From the depths of despair, O Lord, hear my cry.” I’ve had those feelings where I felt I was in the pit of despair along with thoughts, “What if ‘it’ is always like this.” Hey this is Debbie Griffith with Everyday Matters. So, I go to Psalm 91:1 (my 911 verse) reminding me that no matter what I’m feeling I can remain stable by God’s presence and grace. I clearly remember a time in my anxiety where I was in a gas station restroom; filled with fear and the only way I made it out was to put my face against the tiled wall and repeat what I knew was true; “Debbie, you’re safe and stable with Jesus. Take the next step.”
Psalm 91:1 tells me that; “She who dwells in the secret place will remain stable, fixed under the shadow of the Almighty whose power no foe can withstand. I picture this secret place where the presence of Jesus is and where the enemy can’t touch me. I take a deep breath, and I move forward. I know God is with me, He’s with you…everyday.
