Happy Monday Friends!
This morning started off a little rough for me. As I had my personal quiet time of devotion and prayer I began to feel overwhelmed by sadness, a sadness I couldn't explain. As I sat there reading, I suddenly stopped and just began talking to God. For a moment I couldn't even form the words, so I allowed the tears to fall.
I didn't have the words to express what I was feeling in the moment, and as I reflect I am reminded of Psalm 56:8 "You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected all my tears in your bottle. You have recorded each one in your book." I am grateful to know that even when I find it hard to express what's happening on the inside, I can cry and God can essentially read each tear that falls from my eyes.
In this moment, my heart is filled with gratitude, and I am assured that it will not always be like this. Each day as I talk to God & as I become more & more transparent I know that things are truly getting better. My desire is that my transparency & honesty not only helps me get through, but that it can also help someone else.
Friend, please know that you are not alone in the struggle. Life is tough & it can be overwhelming, but when we rely on God & His strength, we don't have to worry about being strong in our own power. I don't cross every "t" & I certainly don't dot every "i", but somehow God still loves me & shows me that He has my back. So, the same God that's holding me up, holding my hand, and guiding me through, is the same God who will be there & do the same for you.
If there is anything I can pray with you about, go to the Contact tab here please & drop me a line. We're on this journey together and we'll all get "there" eventually.
