I waited patiently for the Lord to help me, and he turned to me and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the pit of despair, out of the mud and mire. He set my feet on solid ground and steadied me as I walked along. He has given me a new song to sing, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see what he has done and be amazed. They will put their trust in the Lord.
Although it was relatively minor, we experienced some flooding here after heavy rains. It's amazing how quickly the creeks and rivers rise and wash over the roadways; and how the little trickle of fresh water through a field can become a muddy rush that makes the ground soggy and the road unstable. Likewise, it can take us by surprise when our circumstances or our poor choices threaten to trap us in the mud, sweep out the path from under our feet, or just force us to find a detour around the closed roads and unsafe bridges. But if we trust in our God, he will show us the safe paths, rescue us from danger, and give us reason to be joyful and praise him even in the storms of life.
