Statement of faith

“How lovely is thy dwelling place O Lord of hosts to me”

My dwelling place this week has been one of the loveliest – the grass is green, the sky is blue, the flowers are rainbow assorted.  I remember motoring in thick fog almost at the summit of Mount Tiede in Tenerife.  It was quite scary.  We couldn’t see very far in front of us but kept driving forward hoping and praying that the thick mist would lift and suddenly without any indication of gradual change, there it was - blue, blue sky.   I remember saying out loud “the sky is blue” as if seeing it for the first time  acknowledging the hue,  a miraculous creation, a reflection of God’s character  - a myriad of azure, indigo and radiance.  How good it was to be alive, safe, away from the dark, dew filled, heavy rain clouds.

Life in a fuzzy, misty, watery haze can be disorientating, scary and desperate.  I used to call it my “treacle field” experience.  I would get my feet out of one mess only to put them back down into yet another, leaving me well and truly stuck in a cycle of stress, worry and hopelessness.  Days were dark and life was a struggle.

During one such period in my life my prayer every day was “God, please just get me through this day” and He did.  Not that I was jettisoned, painlessly in a trancelike state from one day to the next but an inner strength would propel me, helping me to  dig my way out of the cave, tunnel, maze mindset in which I had placed myself.

Within a relatively short time my life changed – the hope returned, my mind refocussed, the fatigue waned – a new job, a new home,  a new business venture, a husband, a family,  a church.  All this happened very quickly, so quickly I was overwhelmed.  I soon realised in order for me to be equipped  to undertake all that the Lord had provided I would have to stay connected to my new love –my  Jesus, my rescuer, my saviour, my comforter.    That was 1983.

In the  35 years which followed there have been times when days in my life have been clouded over with sadness, when the sky hasn’t been so radiant, but Jesus’ love has never failed me.  He still hears my prayers, comforts me, carrying me safely in his arms through the grey days until the sun shines once more and the sky returns blue.

Be encouraged and strengthened my friends

I lift up my eyes to the mountains— where does my help come from? 2 My help comes from the·Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth. 3 He will not let your foot slip— h4 indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.   Psalm 121 (NIV)

Blessings to all
