Feeling like your world is falling apart? Are you sensing a deep feeling of despair? Do you feel like the carpet has been ripped from underneath your feet and you feel like you’re free falling about to hit rock bottom…hard? And even though you may have hit rock bottom, does it still feel like you’re falling to a bottomless pit where you feel isolated and alone, abandoned by everyone and everything? I can understand. It is a very dark place. In the past I had built my life on faulty foundations. My dependency (what I perceived was my source of comfort and strength…the thing I believed could sustain my life) was in unstable things. Surely, the carpet had been ripped from underneath my feet and I too was free falling. And in the course of my life this happened several times, not only once. It was the most frightening experience I have ever felt. I had never felt such a deep, profound sense of despair such as this. My life was plagued with mourning day after day. I felt inconsolable like no one understood the depth and magnitude of where I was. And yet, I met God there. In the place of my greatest despair HE CAME TO ME. I did not have to search Him out. In amongst my sobs of great pain I could hear Him whispering my name in the dark dungeon that had become my life and He was consoling me, touching my despair with tender hands. Every time I cried He was there. Nothing I was going through scared Him off. He never left and because of this I allowed Him to come to me closer each time. God took me and accepted me right where I was. He began working on me and my trust with Him and even understood that I did not trust Him and He knew why and yet He did not condemn me. For years He slowly took me where I was and began repairing my foundation – removing the dark ugly things, healing the broken places, planting in me the things that were lacking. He has become my foundation. I trust Him now because of where I’ve been. I encourage you, let the Lord come to your brokenness. He will repair you and build you, a beautiful magnificent structure, with a sure, solid foundation-Himself. And even when you are anxious with Him, He understands and He loves you anyway.
