From The Floor View
Today I had a very humbling experience. I had just walked into Walterboro Family practice with my sick oldest son. Literally seconds after walking through the doors I knew I was in major trouble. On top of recovering from the 3rd recent surgery in my lower back the rest of my back totally gave out. I knew that I needed my son to help me gingerly lay down on the floor ASAP.
I had no idea that I would lay there the next 45 minutes looking like I converted the waiting room into my own personal living room. I quickly became the greeter to the many who walked through the door. Several said, “Oh hey Pastor Craig, How are doing?” While I thought that answer looked obvious I smiled and tried to explain.
Then, there were those who said, “Hey, you’re the guy that writes for the newspaper.” I said, “yes you can expect this week’s article to be called “From The Floor View.” You see, I was extremely humbled while laying there on that floor desperate for God’s help. However, I know there is never a valley that God plans to waste. And never a humble pie moment that God isn’t trying to get our full attention. I actually had my bible with me while on the floor. And, immediately when I opened it here were the two scriptures highlighted.
“God is our refuge and strength, always ready to help in times of trouble. So we will not fear….”
“Be still, and know that I am God.”
