Your consolations cheer my soul

“When the cares of my heart are many, your consolations cheer my soul.” ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭94:19‬ ‭ESV‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬ Often we can feel weighed down with the pressures of life, we can be consumed with worries, cares and anxieties. These things are deep seated and affect our in most being. Compound cares are even more troubling and before we know it we are cascading down the spiral of despair. There needs to be something to stop this dangerous descent, the brakes needs to be applied, before we fall off the edge. Consolation seems to have negative connotations like the prize for finishing last in a competition or race, yet when we console some one we are showing love and compassion. We are running a race where heaven is the finish line, the prize is eternal life, the object is not winning the competition but finishing. Father God arms wide open is just beyond the finish line cheering us on.
