Who am I??? A wife and mother who's continuing to learn daily about God's love and direction. A constant work in progress when it comes to learning how to best share His love with those around me, to serve Him and to simply live life in the capacity I'm led to.
This song has been playing the last couple of days in my van, at some point during my trek. I've been digging deep the past while. Looking towards Him and trying hard to see the many blessings through the storm(s). Funny how storms come in a variety of forms. For our house it's seemed like endless illness or pesky childhood bugs and also through simply the busyness of life and constant demands that simply come from all the different aspects of life.
A lot of prayers have been lifted up from my mouth, to simply give me strength to endure what's ahead. To be a beacon of light in whatever situation arises. And for it to be all Him and not me.
He didn't ever promise this life would be easy. If anything, The Word tells that it won't be easy, especially when you stand up and proclaim Him as your Saviour.
But He did sacrifice His life for us. And He will stand by us through the storms, through the life decisions we make and even when we are alone, we are never really alone, because He's always there, ready to carry someone when they feel they can't take another step.
"If you'll hold on to me for dear life," says God, "I'll get you out of any trouble. I'll give you the best of care if you'll only get to know and trust me. Call me and I'll answer, be at your side in bad times; I'll rescue you, then throw you a party. I'll give you a long life, give you a long drink of salvation!"
Lord, I came to the mountaintop To be with You I felt Your grace falling down like rain And I was made new
But there are times like now when I’m all dried out
And it’s like 40 days out in the desert Feeling like I’m lost forever And crying out for You But in these 40 days I’m going to seek You With my heart because I believe You Have brought me to this place These 40 days
Lord, Your ways are not my own But I trust You Lord, You say, “You are not alone, For I am with you”
But there are times like now when You can’t be found
‘Cause You are with me You never leave me Even when my world turns upside down ‘Cause there are times like now when I will Trust somehow
Well, there is a light at the end of the tunnel…I know
I really feel like this song today. I feel like I'm lost and drowning...that life's crushing down and I can't catch my breath. The peace of God feels so far away. It really sucks. Shouldn't be that way, but life right now seems as far away from peace as you can possibly get.
