The End?

3 02 2008

Wits end. Ever been there? I think everybody has felt the gnawing sensation of helplessness at least once. Actually, in our do-it-yourself culture, that sinking feeling of having exhausted all your options is quite common. It may be something or several things that happen all at once to leave us feeling overwhelmed and almost hopeless. So what do we do then?

Take a look at the example of someone who found the right route to recovery in Psalm 107:27-31:

“They were at their wits end. Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble, and He brought them out of their distress. He stilled the storm to a whisper; the waves of the sea were hushed. They were glad when it grew calm, and He guided them to their desired haven. Let them give thanks to the Lord for His unfailing love.”

It is not really a question of IF seemingly hopeless situations will happen to us but how will we respond when they do? From this bit of the Bible we see that calling out to God is definitely the way to (BE)TTER. Remembering our help comes from above will give us a boost when we need it most.

During the good, bad and ugly times, our response determines our results. So if you feel your strength is ending, look to God for a new beginning.
