He Gave Me A Firm Place To Stand

It is a beautiful, sunny, late spring day. The sky is bright blue, with just a few white, puffy clouds. The grass has been freshly mowed, and the newly potted flowers are hanging on shepherds hooks near the deck. It is a beautiful day in the neighborhood. It might be the calm before the storm, as we have the possibility for severe weather this evening.

Isn’t that just like life? Going through life, everything is flowing smoothly, and all is well. Then it happens. It could be anything, just not what is expected. Sometimes it can mean a bumpy ride, choppy waves, or hanging on for dear life.

“Father, help me to keep my focus on You. When the weather of life is good, I thank you. When life is hard, I thank you, not because I particularly enjoy the difficult things of life, but because I know that You are still there. You don’t leave me alone in the mess. You pull me out and see me through.”
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. Psalm 40:2
