Life isn’t always lived on an even keel. Many of us have experiences that would have us leaning over so far that we feel we will never recover enough to stand upright again.
When this happens, where do we put our hope or trust? Maybe we have supportive family members, or doctors, or just really good friends who help to take the strain. But sometimes even those wonderful people cannot fully understand what we need.
In Jesus we have the most perfect of friends. The greatest lifter of our spirits, companion in our loneliness and healer of our bodies. He holds the keys, waiting to unlock our prisons of guilt, fear, anxiety and depression and, once the door is opened to us, we will never be alone again.
The above photo shows boats that have fallen over when the tide went out. Some need the pier for support. Some just lie helplessly in the mud.
Just as we know for certain that the tide will come in again and re-float the boats, we can also know that Jesus can flood our lives with His love, compassion, healing and whatever else we need to live buoyant lives again.
Ask Jesus into your life today and be assured that, whenever you feel that you are left high and dry by your circumstances, He will turn the tide for you and lift you from the mud.
