*Let this God inspired writing...from His heart to yours; be a prayer of hope
that can keep you lifted high above the enemy; that is attempting to bring you low.
It's during the difficult times; that we truly come to trust God. This trust we experience leads us away from confusion and draws us closer to a God, who becomes a strong habitation; where our thoughts and hearts can escape affliction and find refuge in Him...and the hope we need to cling to...a hope that keeps us above a pit of destruction.
You Lord, are the One who has had control over my life, since the day you chose to create me; for it was You that brought me from my mother's womb and gave me a purpose for living.
Lord...now that I am facing some troubling times in my life...don't forget me...the One that You chose to bring into existence; for those who have brought great hurt into my life, are watching to see if this great God that I talk of, will work on my behalf. In fact...they are waiting for the first chance, to bring me even further down...with words that attempt to convince me that You, oh Lord, have abandoned me.
Oh Lord, don't stand off to the side, while evil wins; but instead, come to me...for you, oh Lord are the only One, who can remove the snares; that are set out, to bring me to destruction.
Even though I don't fully understand the outcome of this situation; I will remove my trust from the situation and continually place my hope and trust in You...for You have never failed me. When other's have broken my trust in them...my trust remains in tact with You; so I will praise You, even at this crucial time in my life; for I know in Your right time...You will be here to rescue me and free me once more.
Even though this circumstance is attempting to weaken me and bring me low; I will press on, with Your almighty strength...and know that You will sustain and keep me close to You.
Oh God, as I look back...even to my youth; I find even more hope and trust in You; for even though I am afflicted now; You, oh Lord have continually brought me, to where I am right now.
Now, oh Lord...let your strength and mercy be seen to others, through these weak moments; that other's will begin to see that there is none like You.
Lord...I remember the many times in my youth, when the path was so narrow...to the place that I never thought I would pass through; but then You came to my rescue and brought me through Yourself. Lord, I think back to these moments; as now they are filling me with hope...a hope that is reassuring me that this can happen once more...only this time, it will cause my faith to grow even stronger.
As I focus Lord on You, rather than what is attempting to bring me down...a light of hope is now shining down upon this darkened path...and I praise You Lord; for I know that You are strong enough to bring my enemies low...and great enough, to lift me up...up out of this pit of despair...AMEN!!
