Psalm 31:3-4 KJV
“For thou art my rock and my fortress; therefore for thy name’s sake lead me, and guide me.  Pull me out of the net that they have laid privily for me: for thou art my strength.”
Even as a mature, long-time Christian, there are times when you feel tired physically, emotionally and spiritually. The more you do and the longer you go on, the more you see, hear and experienced. Sometimes, things hit a little too close to home, get a little more personal. You get burdened down.
You wish to stop.
Well, it’s not as maudlin or depressing as I make it seem, probably. But speaking from personal experience, I can say with absolutely certainty that there are bad days and then there are good days. Thank God that there are more good days than bad ones, which are few and far between.
However, sparse as they may be, when things are bad, they get really bad. I won’t go into details, but I’m certain that many people can identify and understand.
How do we go on?
How do I go on?
Well, I hold on to my faith and trust in God, and He has never failed me. Certainly, there are moments of frustration, confusion, sadness, even anger, but these feelings always go away. They lay a net to entrap, but the Savior pulls me out every time.
It is no trifling thing to put your trust in the Lord.
When everything and everyone around you call for blood, so to speak, your natural instinct is either to flee or go on the defensive. A good choice – I might say the only choice – is to call upon the Lord to help you; for Him to defend and protect you, to give you a way out and be set free.
I can surely testify that He is my Strength and my Rock; He sets me free. It is a liberating feeling indeed.
Why, you might even be renewed in strength and vigor to go endless days yet. Amen.
