    “I waited patiently for the Lord; he turned to me and heard my cry. 2 He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand. 3 He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear and put their trust in the Lord. 4 Blessed is the man who makes the Lord his trust, who does not look to the proud, to those who turn aside to false gods. 5 Many, O Lord my God, are the wonders you have done. The things you planned for us no one can recount to you; were I to speak and tell of them, they would be too many to declare. 6 Sacrifice and offering you did not desire, but my ears you have pierced, ; burnt offerings and sin offerings you did not require.” Psalm 40:1–6 (NIV)

 

    No one ever anticipates being submersed in a “slimy pit”. A number of years ago I was walking on a beach in Lakebay, with my dog. It was one of those areas were you could see how the tide went out and the seagulls had accosted the shellfish and there were broken pieces of shells all over. It was getting late just before dusk and out of nowhere two very large dogs came after me and my Golden Retreiver. You would think that my dog would have stood his ground and shielded me from them but instead he determined that running was a better option. Of course, my dog outran me and as I am striding down the beach with every amount of strength and adrenalin my body would muster the two very loud mutts were on my tail. Just as they were about to overcome me, I tripped and did a tuck and roll, amazingly landing back on my feet and still continuing my stride, but now I was covered with broken shells all over my body which must have confused the dogs as they thankfully discontinued their hunt.

 

    Exhausted and dragging myself down the beach, picking off all the broken shells, I remember thinking to myself: “wow…that was close…can it get any worse?” It was about that moment, I unfortunately stumbled into a sink hole of quicksand. I began sinking in total disbelief. No one was there to help me and I became convinced that I was going to die, buried on a beach and no one would ever find my body. It was then that my dog came wondering back as if to see how I fared with the other dogs. He was no help as he watched me sink deeper into the sand.

 

    It is a scary thing to have all solid ground removed from underneath you. Life can be unpredictable and times can be uncertain. It is in those moments that we need to be reminded that our hope and trust is not in the things of this world. Although everything can change in an instant in our live’s, families, friends, jobs, etc… What does not change is the solid hope we have in Christ. He is constant and eternal! He is the one who holds the balance of creation in His hand. You are the apple of His eye and He is able to bring you before the Father without fault and with great joy! Keep your eyes on Him this week!

 

PS: Being that I am still here, I will have to share with you how I got out of the quicksand for another time!
