Our exercise class includes something called Running Arms. It looks exactly like it sounds. We stand in one spot and move our arms as though we were in a long distance marathon. The trouble is, we don’t get anywhere.
Is that happening to you in your life? Maybe these verses describe how you feel!
My sad life’s dilapidated, a falling-down barn; build me up again by your Word. Barricade the road that goes Nowhere; grace me with your clear revelation. I choose the true road to Somewhere, I post your road signs at every curve and corner. I grasp and cling to whatever you tell me; God, don’t let me down! I’ll run the course you lay out for me if you’ll just show me how. (Psalm 119:26-32, MSG)
Did you catch the solution in there too? Let me repeat it for you in the prayer!
Prayer – I grasp and cling to whatever you tell me; God, don’t let me down! I’ll run the course you lay out for me if you’ll just show me how. Amen
