Under a rock, waters crashing in, in the shadow of my mind, removed from the light within – I make a poor choice, destruction comes to reap havoc, bringing mental decay. Under this rock I destroy myself, a little more each and every day.
“The opposite of creation is destruction” I hear God say. Oh dear! I stepped away from the light-shield that you made.
Creation, creativity, light, laughter and life. I much rather step with that, then wade heavy – headed through the black mud; entrenched with fear consuming me, not allowing love to flow through for me.
My mind is unravelling and my life falling apart, but God says “No, I am with you and you are a piece of my heart”.
No matter the distance I have to go, He has gone before me, He is behind me, this I truly know. There is nothing I can do that he does not know.
He see’s who I truly am and prophesies; “Warrior”; “Brave of heart”. “Your happiness and your future, I have the best of plans for thou art”.
“Get out from under the rock, raise your hands to the sky”‘ the sounds of the wave roar – singing redemption and recovery is mine. I stand up and take on this fight with the glorious strength of him within me, giving me all I need to conquer anything in my mind.
I don’t have it all sorted, this I surely know. But, He really does have my back, my future, my every cell, my every need; He is my shelter, He is my protector, He is my rock, my helper. This I gladly know.
Psalm 40: 1-2: ‘I waited patiently for the Lord; he turned to me and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand.’
