Strength for today…

December 4th | older posts

and bright hope for tomorrow.
What if David gets really sick? Who will Matty be when he is grown? Will we ever pay off our school debt? Am I the mom I should be? When worry creeps in I am reminded that the Lord meets my every need. The journey is painful, but there is so much joy. This is where I live.

    i didn’t mean for that to sound flippant. i know for some that the journey is more painful than for others. i, too am sorry there is pain in the journey, but am thankful that our Lord meets our every need, just like you said.

    This is lovely. I think we are all plagued by doubts and concerns but the one thing I know is that He is there, He knows us, and His hand is in our lives. It always will be. That’s what I hold onto.

    My friend & I were talking and she said something that has stuck with me: when I am afraid, it’s hard to have hope. But when fear is in the background, hope can come. And with hope I can experience joy and love and contentedness, even amidst a painful journey.

    The necklace is beautiful!

    This is precious! I am so thankful that I serve a mighty God who truly cares about me and those around me. Sure…I don’t understand everything & why certain things have happened…but I know His eye is on the sparrow!

    That’s how I feel daily about not knowing what would hold my younger son’s with “Autism” future. But I kept going with a faith, just like you do daily with your children.

    It’s hard not to let worries creep in – sometimes they even ‘stomp’ in. I try to replace my worries with little prayers if I can.
    Love the necklace – reminds me of a little song my Dad used to sing to me.
    Sending you positive, peaceful thoughts!
