Feeling My Way
It was not their sword that won the land, nor did their arm bring them victory; it was Your right hand, Your face, for You loved them.--Psalm 44:3
God is there when I do not see His face. He is there when I cannot sense Him near. Just like trying to maneuver around familiar surroundings in the dark--I put one foot in front of the other in the direction He last showed me, confident that He has not changed. I know where I last saw his footprints, last beheld His face. That is where He still waits for me.
Many are asking, who can show us any good? Let the light of Your face shine on us, O Lord.--Psalm 4:6
You shine on us when we cannot see. You love us when we cannot feel. You guide us when we cannot acknowledge Your nudge.
If those who believe but do not see are blessed, equally blessed must be those who know but cannot feel and whose steps remain resolute in darkness, sadness, loneliness, pain, and doubt. His right hand still holds us. His face still shines on us, for He loves us.
