Your comforts delight my soul…

11 Jan

I’ve been meditating on Psalm 94:17-19 all morning.

“If God hadn’t been there for me, I never would have made it. The minute I said, ‘I’m slipping, I’m falling,’ Your love, God, took hold and held me fast. When I was upset and beside myself, you calmed me down and cheered me up.” (The Message)

The New Living Translation says, “When doubts filled my mind, your comfort gave me renewed hope and cheer.”

The King James Version says, “In the multitude of my anxieties within me, Your comforts delight my soul.”

It has been three years since we said good-bye to Sammy, but I still have HoPE.

When I read verses 17-19 of The Message, I picture myself frustrated and frightened while dangling from a cliff that I had been trying to climb on my own.

Finally, I cry out that I’m falling, and instantly the Hand of God reaches down to firmly grasp my wrist to support me and assures me that I am going to be okay.
