Getting Out of the Pit
Thursday, March 08, 2012
I have thinking and praying a lot about the recent possiblity that my mom as protector may play in my weight journey. Interestingly enough I had chosen a book to take with me to read while my daughter was testing for three mornings this week before I heard those words from my hubby. I've been reading "Get Out of that Pit" by Beth Moore. It is solidifying with each page that this could definitely be a big thing for me. So tonight I am sharing a couple of the scriptures that this author refers to in the book and they keep coming up over and over in different areas this week (Bible study...random scripture...) so I am feeling the "hammer" from the Holy Spirit to listen up.
So give yourselves completely to God. Stand against the devil, and the devil will run from you. Come near to God, and God will come near to you. You sinners, clean sin out of your lives. You who are trying to follow God and the world at the same time, make your thinking pure. Be sad, cry, and weep! Change your laughter into crying and your joy into sadness. Humble yourself in the Lord's presence, and he will honor you.
I waited patiently for the Lord.
He turned to me and heard my cry.
He lifted me out of the pit of destruction,
out of the sticky mud.
He stood me on a rock
and made my feet steady.
He put a new song in my mouth,
a song of praise to our God.
Many people will see this and worship him.
Then they will trust the Lord.
