The Middle

"And there they stood...firmly planted on dry ground in the middle of the Jordan". Joshua 3:17 The Message

Standing in the middle.

Waves crashing all around.

The sound of the wind swirling.

Darkness surrounds, yet my feet are dry.

I'm standing in the middle of my "Jordan". My feet are planted in the center of my impossibility, but God's possibility.

Firmly planted? Not always. Waves of doubt, despair and discouragement threaten to drown my heart. Father, fix my feet on You, my Solid Rock.

"He will not let your foot slip..." Psalm 121:3

Standing firm in Him, in the middle of my "Jordan".

The verse that stood out so much to me today was Joshua 1: 9..."Have I not commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God IS with they whithersoever thou goest." !! How I need that assurance daily ! Not so much that He WILL be with me, but that He IS with me! How blind I am to that fact so many times. I look everywhere trying to find Him, and He's already right here with me!

God bless you!!!

I'm hoping tonight you sleep tight, dear Joy...sometimes a good hard cry is the best therapy. I'm sad to see the loose ends unraveling. I deal best with closure and some things just take time. In the meantime, we continue to pray and believe God; He's our constant and faithful Father.

Hugs to you,
