A Thousand Crutches

 

Morning Show Highlights

 A thousand crutches. Crutches in the form of family, friends, familiar surroundings, local notoriety, title, predictable outcomes and more. Living alone in Indy, I have realized that most of what I have leaned on and called strength and confidence has been nothing more than a crutch. A bent, twisted, man made appendage for me to create the illusion that I am actually standing on my own. I've even called it God. But when you're alone, away from the familiar, that thing that you called God looks back at you and mischievously grins. It winks and whispers, "I got you. I fooled you. Again." 

And so, crutches removed; I fall. I tumble. I curse. I yell. I cry. I display all the behavior and character of that which I despise. I throw a tantrum until I'm exhausted. And then my Father whispers, "Are you ready to listen?" And I say, "Father. Daddy. Help me.  You know I love you. You know I do." And He says, "I know you do, son. Lean on me once again. Lean on me, boy. And if you choose to lean on something else. When that thing breaks, I'll be there to catch you."

I can completely relate to this... And just recently too, as in today.

I hear people say God/Jesus is a crutch… Satan lies about using God/Jesus as a crutch.
We all have crutches of some kind; family, friends, drugs, alcohol, food… etc…
What is your crutch?
           I would rather have Jesus as my crutch than anything or anyone else... He is a life line!!!

Isaiah 41: 9b-10
9b. I have chosen you and have not rejected you. 10. So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

Isaiah 42: 6a
I, the Lord, have called you in righteousness; I will take hold of your hand; I will keep you…

PRAISE GOD for HIS KEEPING POWER!! Hold on to HIS HAND!! You have the choice of holding on or letting go. He won’t drop you if you hold on.   What’s it going to be?

I shared your crutch writing and added this. Thanks!
