When I'm on the golf course, and I have two or three bad holes in a row, I sometimes say that "I have to stop the bleeding." When a business posts a financial loss over several quarters, they need to "stop the bleeding." And on today's Footsteps, Tim Klingbeil, TWR's Chief Development Officer, tells the story of a Colombian drug dealer who had an accident with a machete, and he literally had to "stop the bleeding!"
What about you? Are you going through a season of trials and suffering, and you just want to "stop the bleeding?" The good news is that as a believer in Jesus, you are not alone! The Lord is literally walking alongside of you through your hardships. I pray you'll take comfort in Isaiah 43:2 (NIV):
"When you pass through the waters,
I will be with you;
and when you pass through the rivers,
they will not sweep over you.
When you walk through the fire,
you will not be burned;
the flames will not set you ablaze."
But you might be saying, "Hey, I'm not a Christian. My life is spinning out of control, and I don't sense that God is walking with me." Let me give you this promise: He will! Just cry out to Him. Remember, as He helped the Colombian drug dealer on today's Footsteps, He can come to your rescue as well. So, before you do anything else today, I want you to click on the link below and watch a video about Knowing God. I think it will help you "stop the bleeding" in your life.
