January was a weird “off” month for me – and I struggled with my balance on more than one level.
Nothing awful happened – just a bunch of little stuff that piled altogether (if only in my thoughts) threw me off kilter.
How easy it is to stand confident on even the good things of this world – people and friendships and small groups and family and youth and health and sunshine and rain.
How easy it is then to trip when the precarious ground of health or friendship or sunshine or any good thing begins to slip away.
Lord willing, I’m placing all that January insecurity behind me and embracing the days ahead
For who is God, but the Lord?
And who is a rock, except our God?—
the God who equipped me with strength
and made my way blameless.
He made my feet like the feet of a deer
and set me secure on the heights.
