yes, you! on the other side of the computer screen.
looking, maybe like i do today.
hair a mess. day old mascara smudged under your eyes.
feeling like there’s never enough days in the weekend,
and monday came round again way too fast.
maybe you’re a bit overwhelmed as you look at your week ahead.
a bit tired. burdened about something.
dealing with health issues or conflict in your home.
a relationship that has caused you pain.
circumstances you don’t understand.
maybe your mind is racing. your heart unsettled.
the negative thoughts flooding in faster than you can take them captive.
or, maybe even all that talk of taking thoughts captive..
of battling the enemy and holding up the shield of faith makes ya want to go crawl back in bed.
just not feeling much like the warrior maiden today.
the strong one. the spiritual one.
super mom or barbie wife.
maybe you’re feeling crushed under expectations..
all you’re supposed to be. want to be. what others think you should be.
feeling a bit blah! flabby, ugly. not as young and nimble as you once were. :)
well, i was reminded of something when i woke up this morning..
and wanted to pass on the reminder to you also.
that it’s not about how well i’m holding onto Him today~
it’s the fact that He never stops holding me!
that is how we get through.. whatever it is we need getting through.
this season of life. this conflict. this math test. this health issue. this relationship pain. this week. this day. this moment.. this.
He is holding us.
“the eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms.” deut. 33:27
i especially like that word everlasting.
my strength fades. my faith quivers. my grip loosens. and my arms give out.
and that thought blows a fresh breeze of grace across the big and little of this, yet another, mundane monday.
i hope it does yours as well~
