What God Does For Us
I recently read a poem written by Sheila Walsh. She is an author, speaker, singer and songwriter. Many years ago, she admitted herself to a Christian psychiatric hospital. As she was lying on the floor, she said that she discovered that Christ lives very close to the floor! Wow! I think that is one of the most powerful statements I have ever heard! And then she wrote this poem.
I never knew you lived so close to the floor,
But every time I am bowed down,
Crushed by this weight of grief,
I feel your hand on my head,
Your breath on my cheek,
Your tears on my neck
You never tell me to pull myself together,
To stem the flow of many years.
You simply stay by my side
For as long as it takes,
So close to the floor.
When we are going through the storms of life and situations that challenge our faith, we need to remember that He never, ever leaves us! Someone once said that we are in the right posture when we don’t give up trusting in the grace of God.
Isaiah 43:2 – When you pass through the water, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow you; when you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned.
