Have you ever been in such a miserable place that you literally cry out to Jesus? I have. Many times. I think most people have. Or, at least most people have been in such a miserable place, though not all reach out to our lifeline, Jesus. Can you imagine how desparate they must feel? To be in the "pit of despair" (as Psalm 40:2 says) and have no hope of rescue.
So, I am very thankful that I have Jesus to hear my cries and to lift me out of my pit of despair and onto solid rock where I can stand steady. Full disclosure: I have to work on waiting patiently, even though I know He hears me and is working on it. But that's a topic for a different day...
