Ton of Troubles to Ton of Testimonies

Long enough, GOD — you’ve ignored me long enough. I’ve looked at the back of your head long enough. Long enough I’ve carried this ton of trouble, lived with a stomach full of pain. Long enough my arrogant enemies have looked down their noses at me. Take a good look at me, GOD, my God; I want to look life in the eye, So no enemy can get the best of me or laugh when I fall on my face. I’ve thrown myself headlong into your arms— I’m celebrating your rescue. I’m singing at the top of my lungs, I’m so full of answered prayers.” – Psalm 13:1-6 MSG

Short psalm. But captures our daily reality.

Scene 1: TON of troubles for which we have no solution for. Troubles that make us question ‘where is God when I need Him’

Scene 2: We make a desperate plea to God to DO SOMETHING about our status. An eager desire that God of the universe would take a good look at us.

Scene 3: We decide to live a lifestyle of FAITH and TRUST where we have launched ourselves into God’s arms. Even when we don’t see a miracle, we celebrate the miracle. We sing loudly, knowing God is running the show. We walk in confidence knowing that with God there is always answers to our prayers. Not the way we want it. Not at the time we want it. But there is an answer that we will be glad God chose to rewrite the story, instead of following our script.
