Stuck in the Mud

It's easy to get bogged down and even stuck in the "mud of life" sometimes. When problems arise and unexpected events happen my heart is overcome with sadness and despair.

The feeling of loss is powerful; the pain brings me to my knees. Questions of WHY swirl like storm clouds, anger strikes like a bolt of lightning and tears fall like rain.

The truth is, God always has a plan. Even when I'm stuck in the "mud", God loves me and comforts me. And in His own time, He will pull me up and out of the place I'm stuck and wash the muddiness away.

Until then I pray:
Dear God,
Please calm the storm inside me
Clear my eyes so I can see,
The rainbow You have sent to me.
Clear my mind so I can be
Thankful that You chose me,
To bear this burden of misery.
And through it all help me see,
The treasure You have hid for me.
