Sometimes life comes at you so incredibly fast it is hard to know what the right thing is anymore. Things get messy. They just don’t add up the right way. Even when we know what, or who, the answer really is, it all gets blurred and hazy. Circumstances and fluff surrounding the issue makes it difficult to recognize the truth when we see it.
The Bible says “There is a way that seems right to a man, but it leads to destruction.” This guy knew what he was talking about. All too often when bad things happen, we want to strike out and take revenge. It feels right. Someone has to do something, right? Or we might feel abandoned and wonder, “Where is God when I need Him?” Where are all the people who said they loved me? I am all alone, and nobody even cares.
It is in times like these, when our vision is blurry, that we need to hold tight to the truths that we do know. The memories of when we knew, absolutely knew, that God was with us. We could feel His presence. We could see His handiwork. We could breathe His aroma. We need to hold on tight to these memories. We need to hold tight to the scriptures that we remember—perhaps memorized in childhood. We need to seek His people that He has put in our paths to help us. They are there, as He is there.
The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. Psalm 34:18
