I love this picture, because it illustrates how I have felt many times in my life. I really do try to keep my eyes on Jesus, but sometimes when the unexpected happens or circumstances seem overwhelming, I have found that often without realizing it, I start to take my eyes off Him. This only leads to those sinking feelings of despair, helplessness, hopelessness and depression. I wish I could say that I always have perfect faith and trust in God, but the truth is that that is not always the case. However, I have found that when I do finally came to the place where I cry out to Him, He has never failed to reach out to me and lift me up. One of my favorite Scriptures is I Peter 5:7,
“Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.”I’m thankful that the Lord is my Keeper!
