Trusting Through The Storm

Psalms 13-5Psalms 13 How long, O Lord ? Will you forget me forever? How long will you hide your face from me? How long must I wrestle with my thoughts and every day have sorrow in my heart? How long will my enemy triumph over me? Look on me and answer, O Lord my God. Give light to my eyes, or I will sleep in death; my enemy will say, “I have overcome him,” and my foes will rejoice when I fall. But I trust in your unfailing love; my heart rejoices in your salvation. I will sing to the Lord , for he has been good to me.

I’m not sure which time David’s life was in danger he wrote this Psalm. He had so many. I suspect this is not the first time he ran from Saul. He is clearly tired of it here.  Life has many struggles, at least for most of us. Sometimes we just get tired of it all. As I write this I am taking a break from trying to wrap up a watch I’m making. It seems to be taking forever – two steps forward, one step back (sometimes the other way around). I’ve been working on it for years. We are desperately needing the work done as we have a financial emergency I spend much time in prayer while working, focus on it most of the day, yet have little to show at the end for each of many days. Why do some things in life have to be so hard?

Those who wait upon the Lord, shall renew their strength. Maybe I should quit striving and just wait on him. There’s a thousand ways he could meet our needs. Is that his plan? Or has he prepared a buyer and I need to have it ready for him?  It is hard to know.

Kent Dickerson is a Christian writer, teacher, singer and lecturer. He calls his blog, “Remade Preacher”. The reason why that title was chosen was because God brought him back to full time ministry after leaving it for thirty years. The primary reason for leaving Pastoral Ministry was a deep-seated struggle with pornography. He facilitates two seminars. -Spiritual Battle Plan, The Path To Victory and -Spiritual Battle Plan, the Armor Of God. In both courses he calls upon men to first get into the battle against the sin in their lives and then to find new ways to call upon the Almighty God to lead, strengthen and protect them. He also emphasizes helping each other as brothers. In addition, versions of Spiritual Battle Plan are being developed for both men and women learners. A new class/seminar, Be Transformed, is now available as well. During the “Be Transformed” Seminar Kent teaches the art of analyzing one’s thinking patterns in order to allow renewing-of-the-mind transformation so that one can then devote one’s time to contemplating God. Kent is currently authoring a book tentatively titled, “Remade! A preacher finds victory over pornography and complaint.” He is also working on recording his first EP and videos Kent is from Abilene, Texas where he attended Abilene Christian University. He currently lives in Pyeongtaek, South Korea as part of the U.S. military community.
