Knocked Off Your Feet?

February 16, 2012

Because I’ve written many articles and a book about dealing with life’s losses, I have the privilege of being introduced to a number of fellow strugglers along life’s journey. One of my new friends is a mom whose 21-year-old daughter died suddenly in 2009, which sent her reeling. She told me, “I feel like an outcast from the normal world. I feel crushed and my soul is in so much pain.”

Indeed the losses that visit us can knock us off our feet—whether a death in the family, a child who walks away from God and family, or a physical or mental setback.

Yet what I’ve discovered is something musician Jeremy Camp made clear in a song he wrote after the death of his wife in 2001: When you are knocked off your feet by life’s difficulties, remember that “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble” (Ps. 46:1). That’s reason enough to get back up again. Camp described his struggle in the song called “Understand.” He asked, “Why don’t I get back on my feet again?” And he recognized that he could because “I know You understand it all.”

When trouble knocks us down, we can look up. God is there. He understands and cares. It’s not easy, but we can trust Him to help us get back on our feet again.

Lift up your eyes, despairing one,
The Lord your help will be;
You have a friend in heaven who cheers,
And calms the troubled sea. —Anon.

There is no place where earth’s sorrows
are felt more than in heaven.

Read: Psalm 116:1-6

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. —Psalm 46:1
Bible in a year:
Deuteronomy 1-3

This Is So Totally Wrong!

ORMOND BEACH, Fla. - An Ormond Beach woman was arrested Tuesday night on suspicion of stealing $4,000 from her son -- a U.S. Marine -- while he was deployed in Afghanistan.

Paula Barker, 43, was arrested on charges of fraudulent use of personal identification information.

According to the Volusia County Sheriff's Office, Chadwick Barker, who was deployed for more than six months, discovered upon his return home in September that thousands of dollars had been taken from his bank account.

Deputies said Chadwick Barker suspected his mother of stealing his money, and an investigation was launched.

He told a Volusia deputy that he believed his mother had obtained his account information before he had deployed and used it while he was gone.

Deputies said Paula Barker used the money to buy an airplane ticket and send cash to herself through Western Union.

Deputies said she denied knowing about the charges made to her son's bank account, but a judge signed a warrant and she was arrested at her home

Stealing is so wrong, from your own is worse, but from your son serving his country...I hope she ends up in jail.
