THE UPPER ROOM DEVOTIONAL 3RD OCTOBER 2022

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
God truly listens to me in my times of need.
In the day of my trouble I call on you, for you will answer me. – Psalm 86:7 (NRSV)
After a difficult shoulder surgery, I was severely limited in my daily activities and spent many of my days alone. I developed anxiety and, according to my counselor, a form of PTSD. I was depressed, lost weight, and couldn’t sleep. I was shaking uncontrollably. I was overwhelmed with negative thoughts. Daily I would call out to God, “Please help me, God. I can’t live like this!”
One afternoon, a voice in my mind said, You’ll make it. Just that simple phrase. Soon after, with the proper medications, much prayer, professional counseling, and the support of my wonderful wife, I began to recover. I would not wish this experience on anyone. But through all of this, I gained new understanding and concern for mental health issues as well as a better relationship with God. When I learned how to truly open myself to God’s Spirit and strength, God really did answer me in my time of need.
Heavenly Father, thank you for your strength and love that sustain us in our daily lives. Amen.
