“Where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord” Psalm 121:1-2

Someone to Lean On

by Tammy Glover

I woke up about three o’clock in the morning.  It felt like there was a weight pressing against my chest.  It was hard to breathe and I started to panic.  My mind raced with worries but not about my health.  It was the worries of the day, week and future that assaulted my mind.  I thought about things I regretted, people who hurt me and people who I may have hurt.  Once those negative thoughts started, they just wouldn’t stop.   I sat up in bed and cried.

I hate crying.  I hate feeling out of control.  I wanted to talk to someone but the late hour prevented me from even looking at the phone.  Besides, what would I say, “I’m freaking out and I don’t know why?”  How could anyone possibly help me?  How could they know the right words to say?

As the tears and worries continued to flow, I heard a voice whisper in my ear, “lean on me.”

That was all I needed to be reminded that I was not alone.  I always have access to a never-ending supply of love.  Sometimes when we are in the midst of pain or fear, we forget this fact.  The Lord is always with us.  He understands what we are going through, even when we don’t know how to put it into words.  He can bring calm to chaos.  He will give us wisdom that no one else can even conceive.  He comforts us.  He loves us, immensely and He is always available for His children.  In your dark hours, lean on the Lord.  He will never let you down.

“He who watches over you will not slumber.” Psalm 121:3

    “We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed.” 2 Corinthians 4:8-9

    “For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; while we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.” 2 Corinthians 4:17-18
