Psalm 86:15 “But you, O LORD, are a GOD merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness.”
The Love of a Lifeline!
Unsteady pillars on shaky foundations, are souls trying to stand on the seas.
Where Faith is suspect bound by cloudy intent, there they wallow beneath stormy skies.
But then our LORD’s heart reaching down grasps such hands…
granting rescue to those “making waves”.
Where damages done far beyond “only once” are still given HIS love when choose they to bow!
So praise GOD for Grace even for those with Hate; preventing their chaos-like tempests!
Yea, thankful am I HE saved me in this life to help those still angered…surrender.
For well known HIS move spared this once challenged fool to keep preaching HIS steps to those drowning.
As HIServant purposed to keep extending HIS lifeline,
Devotional: Proverbs 14:29 “Whoever is slow to anger has great understanding, but he who has a hasty temper exalts folly.”
Misplaced anger often entwines itself with Jealousy, Envy and Self-absorbed interest.
Having been rescued myself from myself while in school, the term “preaching to the choir” fits quite well.
Due to a head injury and an allergic reaction to a much needed medicine, Anger always caused very deep and painful rashes that would flair up if I chose to vent uncontrollably.
But GOD! HE healed me!
And although imperfect still, I’m bent on daily improvement.
So! The constant study of HIS words…helps me select mine.
Thanking GOD then for such physical and spiritual Salvation, so this heart shall continue to extend HIS lifeline into Life’s storms!
2 Timothy 2:22 “So flee youthful passions and pursue righteousness, faith, love, and peace, along with those who call on the LORD from a pure heart.”
Amen and amen!
