Thought of the Week:

Beware of self-pity. Once begun, we can easily spiral downwards, and it can be difficult to check. But there is a way. ‘I waited patiently for the Lord; he turned to me and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand. He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God.’ Psalm 40:1-3a (NIV)
When you are in the depths of self-pity see Jesus reaching down to you, grab hold of his hand and just don’t let go. He will lift you up with his strong right hand, and set your feet on a rock, or should I say the Rock, for the rock is Jesus himself. When he puts a new song in your mouth keep singing. That will stop you sinking back into that slimy pit again. Oh, such amazing grace!
