Psalm 30:1-3

Throughout the season of Lent our daily devotions have been written by members of the Faith Lutheran community. Our theme this Lent is “Jesus Our Healer.” Today’s devotion comes from Yu Cao.

I will extol you, O Lord, for you have drawn me up, and did not let my foes rejoice over me.

O Lord my God, I cried to you for help, and you have healed me.

O Lord, you brought up my soul from Sheol, restored me to life from among those gone down to the Pit. Psalm 30:1-3

I started attending church when I thought I hit the lowest point of my life. After being a stay-at-home mom for two years I was so exhausted and felt so lost at that time. I longed for spiritual guidance more than anything else. That’s when I heard Jesus’ stories, God’s rescuing plan, and the promises.

There are still ups and downs in my life afterwards, but I was totally changed. I’m not lost any more. He will always come and draw me up. He will always hear my cry for help. He will always heal me. Eventually, He will bring me to a place overcoming death. How can I not praise him every day?

Let us pray: Heavenly Father, thank you for lifting me up and healing me whenever I cry for help! Thank you for your wonderful, never stopping, never giving up, and everlasting love! In Jesus’ name, Amen.
