Road to Somewhere

Journey with me a bit through Psalm 119 today, won’t you?

I’m feeling terrible—I couldn’t feel worse!

How many times have I said this?   Oh my!

Get me on my feet again. You promised, remember?

 Seems like I’m always asking for help up.

When I told my story, you responded;

You always listen to me, You never tire of my unending whining.

train me well in your deep wisdom.
Help me understand these things inside and out
so I can ponder your miracle-wonders.

I love to sit and ponder You, Lord

My sad life’s dilapidated, a falling-down barn;

Oh my, is it ever!

build me up again by your Word.

In order to do that, I need to be in Your Word.  Give me a hunger that can’t be quenched.

Barricade the road that goes Nowhere;

Yes! Close it off. Make it very clear to me when I’m going the wrong direction.

grace me with your clear revelation.

I’m so dense sometimes, please grace me LOUDLY so I will notice:)

I choose the true road to Somewhere,

Somewhere! I don’t need to know where, as long as I’m not on the road to Nowhere.

I post your road signs at every curve and corner.
I grasp and cling to whatever you tell me;

I’m listening, straining my ears to hear; holding on desperately to each Word uttered.

God, don’t let me down!

I let You down so much. I’m sorry, Lord.

I’ll run the course you lay out for me
if you’ll just show me how.

You know I’m so bad at road maps. I get lost everytime. I don’t know which way is up. I need really clear direction here, Lord. I’m standing at the crossroad – listening, waiting for Your direction, waiting to see what the next turn is on the road to Somewhere, wherever it is that You are taking me. I can’t wait to find out!

Psalm 119:25-32 (The Message)
Italics/bold: The Message;  regular: my prayer

Laury Hubrich:

I am a middle-aged wife of 28 years and mother of three – two adult children and one eighteen-year-old son who is now a freshman in college.  In.  The.  Fall.  I believe this moves me into the empty-nester category, right?

My life and the life of my family drastically changed about nine years ago when I developed a headache that never went away and grew in intensity. I was eventually diagnosed with Intracranial Hypertension, after an extensive search on my part for an answer.  Living with chronic pain seeks to consume a person’s life; my struggle is to not let it define who I am, and trust me, that is a constant struggle.

I love writing.  God led me to Faithwriters where I have grown my skills and also found my very best friends. I like reaching out in electronic form and giving of myself in my blog, Between the Storms, and a group blog, Jewels of Encouragement, where I am a contributing author.   I am also a teacher’s aide at a high school. Each day is a challenge but it’s also very exciting and fulfilling. The best part: I get summers off!  God has given me strength and incredible family and friends to keep me pressing on towards what He has for me.
