10.14.2020 – “Jesus, help!”

Have you ever had days when it feels like this is the prayer of your heart?

“Jesus…. help!”

It’s okay. 🌪☔️🌈

“I waited patiently for the Lord;
And He inclined to me,
And heard my cry.
He also brought me up out of a horrible pit,
Out of the miry clay,
And set my feet upon a rock,
And established my steps.
He has put a new song in my mouth—
Praise to our God;
Many will see it and fear,
And will trust in the Lord.”
—Psalm 40:1-3 NKJV

It’s okay

This is part of life.

But He is faithful…

And as we wait patiently, in our cries for help…

He hears our cries…

And from that place of distress, He will bring us up.

And He will set our feet on solid ground…

And He establishes our steps.

And from those times when the prayer of our heart is, “Jesus, help!”

comes a new song… 💖🎵✍🏻

Speaking of songs…

I love this song—yes, it’s another song from Sandra McCracken’s new album, Patient Kingdom. It’s called, “Into the Harbor”…


“We cried out in our trouble, and You brought us up
The raging storm, You made a whisper and the sea You hushed
Love be our anchor, be still my soul
He who has promised has been faithful


You are the safety I’ve been longing for
Into the harbor would You guide us, Lord


We rejoice in our weakness and You give us strength
We recount Your tender mercy, we will give You thanks
Faith give me courage when my eyes grow dim
Hope be our comfort as we trust in Him


You are the safety on the distant shore
Into the harbor would You guide us, Lord
You are the safety I’ve been longing for
Into the harbor would You guide us, Lord


Into the harbor You guide us, O Lord
Into the safety are Thy distant shore
Into the harbor You guide us, O Lord


We cried out in our trouble, and You brought us up
Into the harbor would You guide us, Lord
Into the harbor would You guide us, O Lord”

And while I’m in the waiting…when I cry out to Jesus for help, I say…

“be still my soul…

the Lord is on your side…”

And how things calm… 🍃

how things shift… ☀️

“And I cried out to Him for help, and He rescued me!”

Thank You, Lord. ☀️🎵🌈

And You fill my heart with the sweetest song. 💖🎶🙌

A new song for a new day rises up in me
every time I think about how he breaks through for me!

Ecstatic praise pours out of my mouth until
everyone hears how God has set me free.
Many will see his miracles;
they’ll stand in awe of God and fall in love with him!
Blessing after blessing comes to those who love and trust the Lord.” —Psalm 40:3-4 TPT
