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….”
(Psalm 47:1-2a)

“Be still, and know that I am God.”
(Psalm 46:10)
