Psalm 139:10 (NKJV)
10 Even there Your hand shall lead me,
And Your right hand shall hold me.
Even there...there is no there that you are not. There is no there that I cannot get through. There is no there, where I have no way out, no where to go or no where to be safe. Even when there are no answers, Even when there is no reason, Even ...
There is much to learn about being the light in the darkness. The "there" I go with those I am walking beside can take me places I wish never existed, consequences that seem irreversible, a future that appears hopeless. When I walk in the "there" I find that there is a way out, a way through and a way home.
Even through the realities of the traps of sexual exploitation, drug addiction, abuse, abandonment, torment, and fear...Even there.
Even through disagreements, broken relationship, disunity, and discouragement...Even there.
Even through illness, discomfort, rejection, loss and phyiscal pain...Even there.
Even when my sensebilities are challenged and I cannot see the step ahead...."Even there Your hand shall lead me, And Your right hand shall hold me."
May you know and experience the presence of the Lord in your "even there"!
