#TheAffirmation: The Sky is NOT Falling!

Posted on July 15, 2014 at 5:54 AM

I will never forget it.  One day, a few years ago, I was feeling so totally overwhelmed by everything that was happening in my life at the time.  I was juggling so much in my head and in my heart and in spite of all that I was feeling, I did know that I could run to God and lay everything on the altar.  I just felt like I needed to "get away" because of the feelings I was having so I went to the park down the street from my house.

Friends, there are times when I have to speak to God in new places to hear God.  I went to the park and I climbed to the top of the bleachers and sat alone in the bleachers of this empty field and I cried out to God.   I needed to hear from God in a way that would ease my anxiety and bring me the comfort that I needed.  I believe that I really was OK with God not necessarily moving my mountain, but just simply giving me the strength to climb.

So, I cried out to God and I told God exactly how I was feeling about everything and everyone that was causing me to feel overwhelmed.  And almost as soon as I laid it all out to God, I looked up and God whispered to me a word that has continued to save me many times over even until this day.  "DELESSLYN, THE SKY IS NOT FALLING."

I admit that tears are coming to my eyes even in this moment as I write this post because I remember how deeply I felt the overwhelming LOVE and CARE of God in that moment.


And as I began to consider the weight of that statement which would leave an indelible mark on my life, I thought about how AWESOME our God is.  I thought about the sky and how all the things that God placed in the sky at creation remain hanging in a delicate and divine balance that has been sustained by the power and wisdom of God for billions of years.  And if God can hold the sky in balance - the sun, the moon, the stars, the planets, the universe, the galaxy - SURELY, the Lord MY God can hold me up and hold me together.  My GOD will NOT let me fall!

And so I REJOICE in my GOD, the maker of heaven and earth who is ABLE to keep ME/YOU from falling and to one day present me/you faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding JOY!  To the ONLY wise God, our Savior, be Glory and Majesty, Dominion and Power, both now and ever. [Jude 1:24-25]

Friends, no matter how you are feeling in this moment about whatever is going on in YOUR life, I want to remind you of a word that continues to bring me peace: THE SKY IS NOT FALLING!
