Have you ever experienced a season of life where you wondered when/if you’d get your head above water?
I have a tendency to be a forward-looking individual who completes a task or fulfills a responsibility and moves on to the next thing. I often have to remind myself to enjoy the moment, to stop and smell the roses (and stop with the list-making). However, there are times in life where we just wish we could fast-forward out of our pain.
For instance, though I consider myself a reasonably healthy person, I feel as if I have been recovering from one thing or another since the beginning of November. I just want to feel good and get some rest. Is that too much to ask? The lyrics of the song “You Alone Can Rescue” by Matt Redman speak to me at times like this–when I again realize how powerless I am without God. I hope they bless you too.
Who, oh Lord, could save themselves,
Their own soul could heal?
Our shame was deeper than the sea
Your grace is deeper still
You alone can rescue, You alone can save
You alone can lift us from the grave
You came down to find us, led us out of death
To You alone belongs the highest praise
You, oh Lord, have made a way
The great divide You heal
For when our hearts were far away
Your love went further still
Yes, your love goes further still
