Psalm 40 v 1 to 4a
I waited patiently for the Lord;
He turned to me and heard my cry.
He lifted me out of the slimy pit,
Out of the mud and mire;
He set my feet on a rock
And gave me a firm place to stand,
He put a new song in my mouth,
A hymn of praise to our God.
Many will see and many will
Put their trust in the Lord.
Blessed is the man who makes
The Lord his trust………….
On the Lakeland fells a walker strayed into a peat bog and sank to her waist. She didn’t thrash about trying to get out but cried for help.
Help came and she was pulled free covered with the dark brown ,cold muck,onto firmer ground.
Once I was at the bottom of a bog of misery,pain
And broken by life.
From the depths of my being I cried unfamiliar words…”Abba, Daddy,help me!”
He heard me and answered.
He lifted me out,put my feet on a rock(Faith in Him) and put a new song of praise in my mouth.
But first the muck had to be washed away, inside and out like it said in Psalm 51 v 7.
Out goes anger
Out goes bitterness
In goes Joy!
In goes Peace!
In goes Faith!
In goes Christ!
So if you are in the muck , call and see what happens!
