My Soul Knows

Hey, my beloved sisters! I have you on my mind right now, wondering how you are and what God is presently sowing into your path. I’ve been writing to you steadily through Children of the Day but today I found myself longing for real-time interaction. I’ve been thinking about a verse that I’ve known and loved a very long time. I like it in almost any version but it’s by far the most gorgeous in the King James.

 

I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
    Marvelous are Your works,
    And that my soul knows very well.

     Psalm 139:14 NKJV

It’s the last line that I love so much. Life is hard and all our unanswered questions and unsolvable mysteries can make us feel like we’re getting sucked further and further into a black hole. We can come to the conclusion that there is really very little that we can know and, for the most part, we earthlings are victims of gravity, the soles of our feet stuck to the dirt and growing more callous by the day. Depression runs particularly rampant this time of year and darkness can be even darker for children of light. We know it’s not where we belong but we don’t always know how to crack the door to the sunshine.

We’re going to give that a shot today.

My challenge to you in the midst of all our questions is to behold what we each – individually, not corporately – really do know all the way into the dark folds of our souls. Here’s the 2-part assignment:

 

1. Complete this sentence: Right now I don’t have any idea… (pick only one thing, the thing that you find most confusing right now or most removed from your knowledgeable reach).

 

2. But these things my soul knows very well: (Write 5 things you know – really, really know – even in the black of night, even when you don’t feel well, even amid your thousands of other questions. Don’t just come up with 5 things by rote because you know they’re the right things to say and they’d be the top 5 priority pieces of information for people of our faith. What 5 things make the most difference to you right now in your circumstances?? What does your soul know very well? 5 things, Sweet Things. Don’t copy anybody else’s answers. Don’t even read anyone else’s list until you leave your comment. This is not about their relationship with your God. This is about yours. In a world of wondering, what do you know, Sister? Resist being predictable. Think about it. Don’t say it if you don’t know it to your core. For instance, don’t say, “I know God loves me” if the truth is that you doubt it every single day. Say what you know.

 

And those things will bridge your faith over to what you don’t.

 

I love you so much.

    1. Right now I don’t have any idea if I should leave my job of 25 years and move on to something less secure but that I think would be more satisfying .

    Anchor.
    4. I know that he is faithful to me despite my unfaithfulness at times.
    5. I know that I will see Jesus face to face one day!!

    De Anna says:

    1) I have no idea how we are going to make it when I leave my job and income in order to be more free for ministry in my church and community.

    2) God has always provided. He has revealed Himself in miracles, small and large. He will never fail. He remains constant.

    Thank you for this exercise. So well timed for me this moment.

    Wendy says:

    Right now I don’t have any idea if God knew when I was walking down the aisle committing in a marriage covenant or 18 years later …that the man I I loved had behavior and mental issues that would cause him to groom his own children for sexual things and be serving prison time as a sex offender….
    But these things my SOUL knows well…
    1. I am a daughter of the king!
    2. In this life we will have trouble, yet God will never leave me or forsake me!
    3. God is my Defender and the character of God is for His justice… In His timing!
    4. God knows how I NEED TO HEAL.. He only knows what I have been tormented with and what I need in my soul to be whole again!!
    5. Gods love for me is soooo great! Isaiah 61 comforts me greatly!

    The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer, my God is my rock in whom I take refuge.
    Psalm 18:2
    Blessings, Wendy

    Lisa Bowden says:

    Right now I don’t have any idea…
    how to help my husband know and love Jesus deeply.

    But these things my soul knows very well:
    1. My God is always with me.
    2. My God loves me and my husband, and my sons.
    3. In heaven, for all eternity, the pain and confusion of this daily life will not exist.
    4. He will continue to give me the daily strength to move forward in spite of pain.
    5. The cross is proof. Proof that he has an eternal plan that may never makes sense in my limited knowledge this side of heaven, but won’t even be necessary to contemplate when I am face to face with Jesus.

    Missy S says:

    1) Right now, I don’t have any clue what God is up to with regard to my job and my destiny. (I have been looking for a job for over sixth months, with no end in sight. My husband is in grad school, so my job is of increasing importance during this season.) At the beginning of the process, I felt like God was calling me to look for a part-time job, so that I could devote some time to a project He has called me to. Sixth months in, with a few full-time opportunities having passed me by, I am starting to wonder if misunderstood.

    2) * My soul KNOWS that one sweet day, I WILL see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.
    * My soul KNOWS Him whom I have believed and am convinced that He is able to guard what I have entrusted to Him for that day.
    * My soul KNOWS that I am not the same as I once was!
    * My soul KNOWS that He has a plan for me, even though I don’t know what it is.
    * My soul KNOWS that Christ has won the victory.

    Erica S. says:

    Right now I don’t have any idea what career or ministry God will lead my husband to after he finishes his internship this winter. I don’t have any idea what God wants because He only seems to show us one step at a time during this difficult two year long journey we have been on.

    But these things I know well:

    God is holding us in the palm of His hand…I feel it.

    God will provide…I have seen it over and over again.

    God will help me through any changes that come because He knows that I struggle with change but I want so much to be in His will even if it’s His will for there to be change.

    God is in control and I am becoming more and more thankful that I am not.

    The more trials I go through, the more I am convinced that God loves me because of the sweetness of His Presence in those trials.

    Tisha says:

    Right now I don’t have any idea:

    Why I suffer so with a spirit of fear some days.

    But these things my soul knows very well:

    God has proved that He is faithful over and over.

    God pursues me. I find it especially true when a verse of scripture has resonated with my soul. I will begin to see it many times in different places over the course of several days.

    The spirit of fear is straight from the enemy of my soul.

    This spirit of fear I am suffering has drawn me closer to the Lover of my soul. Boom! So there you go Satan…I am more humble and more dependent on my Savior because of this. WOW-thank you Beth! I had not realized this before.

    God will get me through this. Sometimes it may only be going forward an inch a day. A very small teeny tiny step. But at least it is going forward. And He will be with me in every step.

    Geri Patterson says:

    I need to make a decision about my job that is irreversible and I don’t know what to choose.

    But I know this:
    1. God loves me.
    2. He promises to help and strengthen me with His mighty right arm.
    3. He already knows this day of my life and what I’ll choose.
    4. He has shown Himself to be faithful to me so many times.
    5. I can trust Him for my salvation, so I can trust Him with this.

    Cindy Cannon says:

    1. Right now I don’t have any idea why God has put a calling on my life to minister to small church?

    2. But these things my soul knows very well:
    a. That God does have a plan for my life!
    b. That Jesus suffering and death for my sins!
    c. That I am forgiven through the blood of Jesus!
    d. That Jesus overcame death, so I could have eternal life!
    e. That Jesus is coming again!

    Kathy says:

    I am struggling to extend grace and mercy to those who have abused me emotionally. I am struggling against anger in my soul, and want to lash out. The Lord is speaking to me through this post.
    Things I know for sure;
    I could not make it without the love of our Lord
    I know he speaks to my soul
    I know the Holy Spirit dwells in me
    I know my prayers are answered.
    God forgives me.

    4)He holds me when I run kicking and screaming to Him.

    Right now I don’t have any idea why I always seem to feel something is lacking in myself personality wise.

    Kathy says:

    The wisdom and God’s timing regarding a NEW life – Right now I am STUCK with no clear way of escape in a place where I have been personally and financially demolished.

    1. GOD clearly has sustained my sons and me in an impossible situation during the last 2+ years of complete personal and family demolition.
    2. God is revealing TRUTH to me.
    3. God has sent me/introduced me to some of his finest servants from all over the world and as varied as the colors of the rainbow These ministers of our Lord have guided me toward a new spiritual perspective in Christ and sustained/supported me during the darkest years of my life for over 16 years. Beth, you have been one of those amazing resources!
    4. Our yellow lab, who died last year, when she was 14.5 years old was sent to us, especially to my son, as part of God’s grace and to help us through this long dark season.
    5. God has sent me even more friends and activities, miraculous unexpected funds(although those $ are coming to an end), a place to life temporarily, good support for an ill parent, and lots of fun in the middle of the demolition and now “waiting” period. I believe God wants to rebuild (not remodel) my family members and me. Make Haste O Lord!

    Right now I don’t have any idea…as to how to put back together my marriage of44 years 🙁

    But these things my soul knows very well: God understands me, 2) God is faithful 3) God gives me His protection…eph 6:

    10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
    …4) He wants me to glorify HIM.
    5) He is so personal with and to me
    Extra special: Beth, you are my sister and love how God has used you in my life. blessed!

    2. My path today is this: repentance and rest, followed by quietness and trust (Isaiah 30:15)

    Sharae Crouch says:

    Right now I have no idea where my life will take me after my 13 year marriage ends in divorce in just a few weeks. Will I get to keep my house? Will I get that teaching job next fall? Will I need to move towns?

    5 things my soul knows:
    1. I am deeply loved by the Almighty God of the Universe
    2. Nothing about this siutation or circumstances is a surprise to God and He holds me in the palm of His hand.
    3. Becoming a divorced Christian does not define me or render me unusable by God – it only describes my marital status.
    4. I am safe now. I did a brave thing getting out.
    5. God has plans for my life – and they are good. I am safe with Him.

    This was a beautiful exercise to do – very comforting and empowering. Thank you, blessings to you and the ministry!

    I do not what my future holds in my job or in my health. I had spinal fusion earlier and even though it was considered a “success” I still have pain and am currently under going a series of Epidural Steroid Injections under anesthesia in my spinal cord. Life is hard right now but:

    I know!
    God loves me
    God has plan
    God will provide
    God knows my uncertainness
    God is here

  23. 173

    Right now I don’t have any idea if my son will fully bend his knee to allow You to be not just his Savior, but His Lord. But these things my soul knows very well:
    *You love him more than I do.
    *You see him this very minute. You know what he’s wearing today.
    *You have more power of persuasion over him than I do.
    *Sometimes the things that are so destructive are the very things You use to bring the most good and healing.
    *If You could work my disaster for good, You can do it for him, too.
    Therefore…Shalom.

    1. I know that God is.
    2. I know that He loves me and will take care of me, even when I disobey. (Because of who He is and what He is like, and not due to anything about me).
    3. I know that I will never be able to fully understand #1 & 2, while I am still living here on earth; but I still know it with every cell of my being.
    4. I know that He loves my children and husband even more than I do.
    5. I know that He knows the future, and will walk beside me, and sometimes carry me, through whatever may come; so I don’t have to be afraid.

    Lynne- North Carolina says:

    Unexpectedly and most confusing is that my husband of 13 years has decided that he is not sure if he loves me or wants to be married.
    He has been interested in a very young co-worker.This story would seem cliche and typical except that we were happy!Our home was full of love and laughter and he was truly my best friend.
    I believed until the day that I saw his emails to the woman, that I was loved, respected, and admired! Confusing… yes, and oh so painful to my entire reality and self esteem.
    Here is what I know and CLING to:
    1) God loves me
    2) God has a plan a purpose for even the most difficult season of my life.
    3) God comforts me and all who mourn.
    4) God strengthens me when I am filled fear.
    5) Joy and peace are present through the tears and pain when I cry out to my God.

    Just what I needed this morning! I will have a thankful heart today and praise God for making me! He is such an amazing God.

    Right now I don’t have any idea why my husband and I have not been able to get pregnant yet.

    But these things my soul knows very well…
    1. That God’s timing is truly perfect. I’m not just saying this because it’s a catchy, common phrase- I know it very well. I’ve seen God’s glorious, perfect timing happen multiple times in my past. It’s a beautiful thing!
    2. I know God is close to the broken hearted. My soul knows this very well and I feel his compassion for me in this time of waiting.
    3. My relationship with Jesus has soared to new, beautiful levels that would never have happened if I hadn’t been in a season of waiting on the Lord.
    4. I know that God will take care of me and my husband. I know he will provide every single thing that we need. Our needs will always be met my Him.
    5. I know to my very core that He has great things planned for me and my husband in our future and our pain will not be wasted.

    Diana Brasher says:

    Right now I don’t have any idea what the future holds as my precious daughter lives her life as a breast cancer patient.
    But these things I know very well:
    God is holding me and being my strength when I have none, just as He is holding her.
    I experienced a WORD from Him as He took over,the very second she blurted out “I have breast cancer!” and that word was, “Don’t be afraid; she will be fine.”
    After double mastectomy and chemo, Julie has been declared Free of cancer!
    I know my daughter is much stronger than I ever knew and that she is facing her ever-changed life, her “new normal” with grace, determination, and faith and that her motivation to be an over-comer is fueled by her heart’s desire to be here to share with her husband as they raise their two little children.
    I know more than ever that “all things” even something this hard, can have positive results “for those who love the Lord…” In my case I have never had as intimate a relationship with the Lord Jesus as I have now as “cancer mom.” I only thought I had a close walk before, but through this experience I have learned to depend wholly on Him, one step at a time, one day at a time. He IS my STRENGTH.

    Gail says:

    Right now I don’t have any idea How God will help a certain person I love, move from Anger to Forgiveness and not be such an authoritarian as he hurts others in his own hurt.

    I KNOW Full Well: I can, and have, stand, stood, in the way of God, and when I moved out of the way, His Will can be and Was done. Easy? NO, a thousand times no. Worth it? YES a Zillion times yes!
    And I know, if God wants to use me in this same situation I do not know how it will turn out, he can, and if He wants me to stand completely aside, I should and will do it.
    He alone is ABLE.
    My love for Him makes every hurt, trial, Joy, burden, down moments, up moments, All Worth it all Forever.
    One day I Will see His Face! And He promises me that since I taught my children to Seek Him too, they will be there too!
    Praise Jesus! So Thankful for Our God!

    Right now I don’t have any idea where my ministry will lead me next year. But these 5 things I do know:
    1. When I thought God hadn’t been listening to me, He proved a few weeks ago, He definitely had been.
    2. He is directing my mothers recovery from colon cancer.
    3. He has picked me up out of the mire and placed my feet on solid ground.
    4. He has given me a good Christian boss to tutor and lead me.
    5. I don’t know what tomorrow will bring, but it may be just as good if not better than what last week brought.

    Barbara says:

    My son has made a serious mess of his family with duplicity. (has precious first and second grader) He says he is ready to do what it takes to get his family back, we want to believe he is being truthful and sincere when sometimes it appears otherwise. We need Gods discernment.
    1. God is always faithful, I TRUST HIM.
    2. God has a plan and it includes forgiveness.
    3. God loves my son even more than I do and desires for him to live FOR Him.
    4. Gods timing is perfect, Gods timing is perfect, he is never early or late.
    5. Gods will is for Dads to be with their family as a Godly influence, helpmate and leader.

    Jillian says:

    I don’t know how to combat the despair and shame I feel.

    I know that He brings restoration in the long run.
    I know that God is sovereign over my emotions. I may feel hopeful again soon.
    I know that He doesn’t expect me to wear a mask or “buck up.”
    I know that He is tenderness, and not the accuser.
    I know that He doesn’t expect us to do things or go through things on our own strength.

    Fran says:

    Right now I don’t’ have any idea how I am going to live the rest of my life with the level of physical pain I’m enduring daily, but these things my soul knows very well…

    1. God is good ALL the time
    2. Greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world. (especially helpful in the dark of night)
    3. Everything that happens to me is for my good and His glory.
    4. When it comes down to it, we MUST trust God for everything that happens.
    5. No matter what our circumstances, we can choose joy. Not joy that the bad thing is happening, but joy that we have a Father who is present, who loves us so very much and who promises us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all!!!

    Alicia p says:

    Right now I don’t have any idea whether the last 5 years of utter chaos are coming to an end or still continuing… (ANOTHER possible move, ANOTHER possible job change, family change…)
    But these things my soul knows…
    1- god IS sovereign. If he gave us Jesus, wouldn’t he also give us direction?
    2- living a life of thankfulness is what gives me the perspective to keep on moving forward, while waiting. (Not feeling stuck!)
    3- the darkness gives birth to newness.
    4- I trust gods word. I trust the stories in it. I trust the people who live it out & share their wisdom (you’re included in that, mama Beth!)
    5- THE LAW OF THE HARVEST MEANS THAT IT WILL RAIN AGAIN. I want to not just *know* this is my mind, I WANT TO FEEL THE RAIN & EXPERIENCE IT!!!!!!

    PS: this was so so so good to write out! THANK YOU!!!!! I needed it!!!!

    Michele says:

    Right now I don’t know how I’ll ever get out if debt or from underneath this financial mountain I built.

    I know that God’s word is more trustworthy than my feelings.
    I know that my thoughts and reactions and questions do not surprise God.
    I know that God calls people who the world would look at and say, “Why her?”
    I know that God can do more in three months of my submission to him than I could do in 11 years of “trying everything”.
    I know that I’m going to heaven and only because of Jesus Christ and God’s grace.

    He is generous and gracious.

      Wow, Stephanie! I am in tears right now over your mother’s dream. I have a family member who clings to a similar dream she had about her son, who has been caught up in the throes of drug and alcohol addiction for over a decade. Keep believing Him for it, sister!

    Right now I don’t have any idea how long the insanity at work will continue when it seems that just when you think it can’t get any crazier, it does.

    But these things my soul knows very well:

    2- He calls it sin when I react in the flesh.
    3- He shows me over and over that He is my strength.
    4- God is always worthy of praise from a heart of thankfulness.
    5- He always stays with me and gives me grace to get up again.

    Right now I don’t have any idea how the Father can perfect those things which concern me, but I trust that He who does ALL things well, will.

    But those things my soul knows very well are that God loves me through and through. His love is not dependent on my works; it is always there. God can be trusted in the midst of black and ugly circumstances. He will never leave me or forsake me. I am my beloved’s and He is mine. No matter where I go or what I experience, I can never get away from God’s love for me.

    Jenniferb says:

    My one thing that I don’t know. God’s will
    We thought that The Lord was beginning to open doors, only to find ourselves in dark places with no doors.

    Five things I’m really sure about.
    1) Each of my five kids
    2) my husband’s love
    3) my soul knows He does have a plan
    4) His Word is truth.
    5)

    These are the four that I’ve been clinging to lately. It’s been dark for quite some time.

    Thank you for asking Mrs Beth. Praying for you and yours today.
