The Twilight Zone

I grew up in almost an innocent world years ago. The odd time after my parents finally got a black tv I watched a show called The Twilight Zone. Some hapless victim always stumbled into some misadventure and ended trapped in a stressful situation. Nothing usually made sense,the rules of time suspended,and it was clear once you got into this strange situation you did your best to get out of it. The bible is full of people who had difficult traumatic situations. They needed escape. (Ei-Daniel facing hungry lions). The need to be delivered from a traumatic life experience is something I know about over my life. The people of Israel were in harsh, brutal circumstances while in Egypt. They could not escape Egyptian bondage until God opened up a supernatural way through the Red Sea. Is your life in limbo because you are struck with illness, divorce, betrayal, death of a family member, spouse or friend. The Twilight Zone dwellers have lives filled with can’ts. This is an almost overwhelming feeling to have daily. These ‘cant’s form internet groups just to share with others their cant’s. That’s a train wreck waiting to happen unless someone says, “there is a way out of this situation, His Name is Jesus.” He grips my life daily and gives me hope midst my dear wife’s chronic illness. We are not victims of trauma, we are over-comers in the Person of Jesus Christ. The scripture says, Cast your burden upon the Lord, and He will sustain you, the righteous shall not be moved.( Psalm 55:22). You can find strength for your journey and a promise of deliverance in the power of the cross, burial, and resurrection of Christ. You are not in the Twilight Zone dear friend, but in His hands of Almighty God preparing for your personal Exodus.
