Like the Feet of Deer

"When things seem to be going all wrong, stop and affirm your trust in Me...leave (these matters) in My capable hands. Then, simply do the next thing... I will make your feet like the feet of a deer. I enable you to walk and make progress upon the high places." (229) Habakkuk 3:17-19
When things seem be be going all wrong, it is hard to navigate forward, hard to clear my thoughts, hard to discern what's best, what's necessary or what needs to be eliminated. It's hard to focus on possibilities when my thoughts are filled with impossibilities and haunting concerns.
The picture of a graceful deer springing over tangled terrain, leaping over dangerous crevices or jumping from one rocky ridge to the next inspires me to believe that God will enable me to move forward with supernatural grace in my own rough times.
Even when the landscape of life gets rugged, the landscape of my mind can be renewed, energized and graced because of a Good and Gracious God!

  1. I love the Job 13:15 scripture today."Though He slay me, yet will I trust in Him; but I will argue mine own ways before Him." . He came to accept that bad things happen to us and not because we are being punushed for some sin. Job went through alot, but decided to trust in God not in man.

    We were having computer problems the other day among other frustrations and struggles when a friend shared a song that really touched me. I actually was able to rejoice in my trials!


  2. I certainly needed the feet of a deer to survive today. This week my days are filled with puzzles, play doh, music (I hadn’t listened to those records for years!), books, movies, giggles, squeals, questions, interesting talks about God, and all things childish. Thank you, God, for the gift of children!
