Harbour

Psalm 107:28–30 (NLT): “Lord, help!” they cried in their trouble,
and he saved them from their distress.
He calmed the storm to a whisper
and stilled the waves.
What a blessing was that stillness
as he brought them safely into harbor!

When I read this in today’s devotions it quickened my mind and a few words stood out, each with a memory and reason to praise God…

Distress… When I look back at who I was in 2014 I know I was totally in distress… Being suicidal pretty much sums it up… God met at me and the healing process began…

Whisper & Still… #1 I was at our Celebrate Recovery weekly meeting and God’s spirit whispered to my heart 💓 that I no longer hated myself… And it was truth… It came as just a puff of air…

#2 I sat in church on a Sunday morning and again the whisper and puff only this time I received my comission from God… Ministering to women who also are dealing with mental health issues both who come to CR and those who in are in church who but keep them hidden because of stigma…

And in bith those moments I was totally still and knew God… Psalms 46:10 Be still and know…

Harbour… Recently I was on a boat and we were suppose to be heading to an area for snorkeling and other water activities but it impossible because a storm was brewing and the waves were too choppy. Instead we headed back and stayed within the harbour – where it was safe…

God has taken me out of my suicidal, deep self-hatred and provided me safety…

Is life perfect? 🙃 No, not even close but I’m in the harbour and I can choose to stay or if I’m not paying attention, I can drift out beyond the safety…
