Psalm 40:17 I am poor and needy. May the Lord be concerned about me. You are the One who helps me and saves me. My God, please don’t wait any longer.

Psalms 40:17 I am poor and needy. May the Lord be concerned about me. You are the One who helps me and saves me. My God, please don’t wait any longer.

God cares about you. He created you in His image and He wants to help you discover who He intended you to be.

For the last thirty years I have been involved in recovery through one form of fellowship or another. Through those thirty years I have learned much. I have applied a lot of what I have learned to my daily living.

Recovery started to work in my life when I accepted God loves me, cares about me, has a plan and a purpose for me. And, He will help me to achieve it if I put my faith in Him.

  • What or who do you trust?
  • How’s that working out for you?
  • Do you need to refocus your faith?

What The Bible Says

Patient persistence pierces through indifference.

That is why waiting does not diminish us, any more than waiting diminishes a pregnant mother. We are enlarged in the waiting. We, of course, don’t see what is enlarging us. But the longer we wait, the larger we become, and the more joyful our expectancy.

Staying with it–that’s what God requires. Stay with it to the end. You won’t be sorry, and you’ll be saved.

If we can only keep our grip on the sure thing we started out with, we’re in this with Christ for the long haul.

Prayer:  Help me God to put my faith in You and focus on your plan for me
