If You're at Rock Bottom
Ever felt like your life circumstances have brought you to an all-time low---like you've reached "rock bottom" ?? I understand. It's totally okay to feel that way.
Last night, after seeing a comment someone posted on YouTube about how they have hit rock bottom, my heart began to ponder the idea of hitting rock bottom.
What would you do? Well, of course, hitting rock bottom makes us feel totally discouraged and almost about to give up hope, right? Then it would make sense to "LOOK UP".... I mean, after all, when you're at the very bottom---"Rock Bottom"---that's just about all you CAN do, is look up. Right? Well, yes, and no. Of course, LOOK UP---Look up to GOD....He's our only hope and deliverer. . .
What if when we've hit that lowest point, we make a conscious choice to "not look up" but remain discouraged, and in a sense, "look down" (FACE down). Well, think about it for a minute. Instead of looking up, we turn our face down, almost in a sense of defeat right?
But look again.
II Samuel 22:2 says, "He said: "The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer..." The LORD is my what? My ROCK. So, if we can truly claim this...if Jesus really is OUR LORD, then HE is also our Rock..... So what if we've hit "rock bottom?" It would seem that if we turn our faces down, we will find none other than our ROCK, holding us up! Oh my goodness. Even if we get discouraged, and just waller in our sadness, choosing not to "LOOK UP" to Him, we will still find that He is there, no matter which way we turn. The Lord is my ROCK...and I'm at "rock bottom"-- so it seems here we have a sweet picture that He has never left us, even in the trials and storms. He is all the more nearer simply because we HAVE "hit rock bottom."
The Lord is close to the broken hearted
and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
Just wanted to share that quick little thought (and lesson) that He showed me last night. Share it with someone you know that may feel as if they're at "rock bottom." This will truly give them a new perspective on their circumstances. I know it did for me!
Thank You, Lord!!
Thank You, Lord!!
Until next time,
