Days of Trouble

I shouldn't even ask this question because I don't know of anyone who hasn't had days of trouble, but I will ask anyway, Have you had days of trouble? Or maybe I should ask you if you never have had days of trouble?  I am sure you have had days that were actually overwhelming, I know that I have.  I clearly remember a time a few years back when the tears wouldn't stop for days, I even sought counseling to help me, by the way it had nothing to do with my husband.  Nothing worked that I said or did and finally I left it in the Lord's hands to do whatever He needed to do to make it come out alright.  I know that some of you have been through times of trouble such as that was and I sympathize with you completely.  It is a hard road to walk, and there are times when we don't know if we will make it but there is a way out, and it really is an easy way out.

Psalms 50:15  "Call upon Me in the day of trouble;  I will deliver you, and you shall glorify Me."  I was really truly delivered, from my time of trouble at that particular time.  God did it too, I had nothing to do with it and couldn't have done anything anyway, it was out of my hands.

Psalms 27:5  "For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion; In the secret place of His tabernacle He shall hide me; He shall set me high upon a rock.  I don't remember being set high upon a rock but I do remember of being able of  doing something that I had often yearned to do and that was being a church organist.  I loved it and have never forgotten the privilege that was mine to play for church.  He also hid me in His pavilion long enough for me to survive my days of trouble and for that I am forever grateful.

Psalms 91:15  "He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him; and honor him."  I have called so many times in my life and He has answered so many more times than I have called, even before I called.  I don't know about Him honoring me, am not sure about that but some day perhaps He will or has and I didn't recognize it.  Sometimes I am pretty slow at catching on.

I have survived all the troubles so far that have come to me by His grace and His excellent promises that mean so much to me.  I know some of you are going through days of trouble right now or have been and I pray that you will be faithful in calling upon Him who is always ready to deliver you.  Be faithful my friend and you will be honored by Him who loves you so much.  Grandma Joan
