The Upper Room Daily Devotional For Today 22 September 2022Journey to Stability By Sheryl H. Boldt (Florida, USA)

TOPIC: Journey to Stability

Sheryl H. Boldt (Florida, USA)

TODAY’S READING

Jeremiah 31:1-6

KEY VERSE: The Lord appeared to us in the past, saying: “I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.” – Jeremiah 31:3 (NIV)

MESSAGE

Seventeen years ago, I had a breakthrough and finally understood the Lord’s love for me. For decades I had begged God to deliver me from my eating disorders and clinical depression. They were taking a toll on my relationships, and I felt like even God had given up on me. I prayed, “God, I’m constantly letting people down, including myself. From now on, I’m going to focus on your love for me.”

Something changed when I heard myself speak with certainty of God’s love for me. In a powerful way I knew my heavenly Father loved me and was on my side. I knew that God never had and never would give up on me. I no longer felt that God was exasperated with me — I sensed God’s tenderness.

That day began my slow and steady progress out of emotional instability. After a lot of counseling, the right medication for a while, and, most of all, lots of time with God through prayer and Bible reading, I found stability.

I’m glad I didn’t wait until my situation got worse. Even though my situation seemed hopeless, I learned to trust in God’s love for me and sought the help I needed.

God’s love has the power to deliver me from hopelessness.
