Where's the shore?

So many times in life we take things on our own.  We step out into the water and it feels good at first.  It feels refreshing and satisfying, but after a while our feet start sinking.  The further away from the shore we get the harder it seems to get back.  We get so far away that we can't see the shore any longer.  The water just keeps getting higher and higher until only our heads are above.  It is then that we are forced to look up.  To reach up, to ask for our Heavenly Father to help us.  It is in those times that we trust in Him fully. This isn't how He meant for it to be, He wants us always to trust in him. 
Proverbs 3:5-6
Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
We don't have to swim back to the shore.  We don't have to even be able to see the shore.  He does all of that for us.  He lifts us up out of the water and stands us back up on the shore. 
Psalm 40:2
He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.

What wonderful Grace and Mercy we recieve from our Lord!  Not only did He give His son to die for us so that our sins would be forgiven, but He cares where we are and what is going on in our lives.  When I choose my own path I am not choosing myself, but rather rejecting God.  WOW!  Rejecting God. That's not a place I ever WANT to be, but I find myself there a LOT.  Where can we go when we find ourselves in this place?
Samuel 22:7
In my distress I called upon the LORD, and cried to my God: and he did hear my voice out of his temple, and my cry did enter into his ears.

    It is true that we sometimes make God our last resort. How sad that must make Him. He cares about every minute detail of our lives.
