Today was a beautiful spring-like day in NYC. Thank you, Jesus! I wasn’t outside for very long, but when I did step out, without a coat, I felt the sunshine on my arms. It was magic. I haven’t felt like that in forever. Thoughts of future warm, dark blue New York City nights filled my mind.

I got home, and I decided to listen to Delilah on the radio. (So 90s, I know). I love hearing the callers’ stories, as they share their pain, love, heartache, frustration, joy and dreams come true. (Those of you who read this blog often know Delilah is my evening guilty pleasure).

My favorite caller tonight said:

“I have been going through so much lately, Delilah. What do you do when you feel you can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel? What do you do when you feel you can’t do it anymore? My faith is all I am clinging to… We are human beings; we want things done in our time, but it’s always in His time, Delilah.”

Delilah answered:

“You know what I have learned? When God asks us to put our faith in Him and there is nothing beneath us holding us up, either God will put solid ground beneath our feet or God will give us wings to fly.”

He is only one prayer away; He’ll save the day.

“And now, O Lord, for what do I wait? My hope is in you.” Psalm 39:7

“Blessed is the man who makes the Lord his trust, who does not turn to the proud, to those who go astray after a lie! You have multiplied, O Lord my God, your wondrous deeds and your thoughts toward us; none can compare with you! I will proclaim and tell of them, yet they are more than can be told.” Psalm 40:4-5

I hope you find rest in Him tonight. I pray you get the solid ground beneath your feet so you can stand or the wings you need to fly.
