Sustain My Sanity

share post

My world right now is rickety.

Swathed in dense fog, all unknown. This is how to walk by faith. Certainly not by sight.

I stepped off the precipice and entered freefall, but I know in the chaos God is guiding order.

I would not be able to sustain my sanity without the support of those who hold me up. The countless prayer partners lifting me to the throne of Heaven, the countless encouraging words of my father, the endless optimism of my mom, and the solid belief of my siblings who see the good in me.

I walk through the thicket into a new season that I engaged in, yet hardly expected the scene of what it is for the time being. Move across states back to homeland, still waiting for a job to materialize, and wonder of where in the world I am going.

But my support stands firm with me, backboned in the truth of God’s Word and His sure promises.

I do not know when again I’ll find firm footing, but I do know that I press on with bold courage, a battle against discouragement, and dear friends and loved ones bolstering me with their words and bended knees on my behalf.

Even in the swirl of unsettledness, I trust Him who parts seas and stills the storm. For Him who has kept every last promise He has made, for the glory of His name’s sake.

Here is where faith digs in. Here is where we still shape our character, forge our spirit. We go together, for all the good that is to come.



Continuing my attempt at the Five Minute Friday weekly writing challenge. Five minutes to write on the assigned topic. Raw and unedited. (Yikes!) This week’s topic: Support.

    Sarah, I always enjoy your writing and especially appreciated this line: “But my support stands firm with me, backboned in the truth of God’s Word and His sure promises.” I know what that feels like — and it’s what makes it possible to keep going when the way is hard or unclear. Thanks for this reflection. Take care.

  2. Sorry to hear that it’s tough for you. May you always have people to surround you in this season!

    Sarah, what a blessing it is to be invited to walk with you in your journey. My own rickety view is eased by the reminder that we are doing this together. “We go together, for all the good that is to come.” I claim this affirmation for both of us. And I’m so excited that your are part of Five Minute Friday!

  4. Sarah, you remain in my heart and prayers. God has a plan and I know you know He’s also teaching you patience and trust. You are a blessing.
