If I say, “My foot slips,” Your mercy, O Lord, will hold me up. In the multitude of my anxieties within me, Your comforts delight my soul.

Psalm 94:18-19 NKJV


Midweek thoughts


Mistakes, slip ups, errors.  These are just a few words that reflect when we mess up.  Most of the time they are things we really didn’t mean to do, we didn’t deliberately mean to make a mistake but there we are, realizing we did.  It could be something as simple as a wrong word coming out of our mouth, maybe a bad word we don’t like to say.  It could be a slight.  While using the self-checkout, something doesn’t get rung up correctly.  Most of the time we catch ourselves and can correct the mistake or apologize for our error.  Sometimes it just gets away from us and we just don’t realize it.

In this fast-paced world we live in, sometimes things get missed or we slip.  So many reasons this could happen.  Most of the time we just didn’t take our time to think and thoroughly process everything around us.  We are in a hurry.  Why?  If we stop to think about it, we will realize there really isn’t a need to hurry.  We might find that if we slow down just a bit and take our time things might go better and easier, maybe even faster, than if we try to hurry.

Often these “slips” that we make cause us to feel anxious, worried, guilty, tired, or overwhelmed.  We let them drag us down and possibly allow more slip ups to happen.  Like a vicious cycle.

Take a moment, maybe two, and just breathe.  Talk to our Heavenly Father and allow Him to hold you up.  Let thoughts and conversations with Him lift you up and comfort you.  He is our strength, our rock, our comforter, and our redeemer.

Let His comfort delight our souls.
