As I look back on my life once more; I remember a time, when I felt as if I was in the deepest darkest pit of despair. If I was to describe what I felt at the time; I would probably say that this pit was very deep, with dirt walls; that made it impossible for me to climb out of, on my own.
It seemed that with each attempt I made, to come out of this pit…I would just fall back down into the place, where I once was. As I sat there hopeless…thinking that I would never make it out; it was as though I began to see a hand reaching down into my pit…a hand with a nail scar; which only reminded me that Jesus had heard my desperate cry for help.
In Psalm 40:2, we read… “He lifted me out of the pit of despair, out from the bog and the mire, and set my feet on a hard, firm path, and steadied me as I walked along.”…and this is exactly what He did for me! As soon as I was willing to let go and truly realize that I wasn’t going to be able to make it out of that pit on my own; that’s when Jesus came to me and saved me.
You know…it’s so easy, to want to make life work for ourselves. Seems like we are the ones that always feel the need to be in charge; but one thing we must realize…we can’t do what Jesus can do; so rather than trying to fight what we can’t do; maybe it’s time to let go and let Christ do, what He can only do for us.
