Be Near

We are hurting today.

Broken today.

Mourning what we have lost and striving to see past the pain.

It comes in waves. Overwhelms us. Suffocating.

Pain.

Trials.

Produce perseverance. Hope.

We are hoping today.

Hoping for healing.

Hoping for the tears to be wiped away.

Hanging on. Yet pushing away. Holding tight while letting go.

Broken yet hopeful.

Lord God...be near today. We need you.

What rigorous transparency. You and the pain you speak of gripped me at once. I don't know the whole of your story, but I recognize the hurt. May His peace and myriad comforts blanket you, even as He sees you through this sorrow.

Blessings,
Kathleen

Oh Sheryl... I recognize those heartfelt words.

I'm praying for you to find your way into God's arms, into His lap, where you'll find rest as He wraps His arms around you and holds you until you find healing, until He dries your tears, until the broken pieces of life mend themselves back, reflecting His image even more through these experiences.

You are loved...

Someone shared this on my blog. It brought me great comfort as I pray the words will for you.

Psalm 56:8 (New Living Translation)

8 You keep track of all my sorrows.[a]
You have collected all my tears in your bottle.
You have recorded each one in your book.

yes yes yes that was so beautiful thank you. God is faithful. God is good. He has not given us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline (2tim1:7)

In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express. Rom.8:26

Love you precious friend...

It's time to do more to involve your children's father back in their lives-you know he is trying-the kids are young and do not realize what they are doing by pushing him away. This is when the two of you as parents need to make the decisions for them, whether they agree or not, as they should not have a say at such a young age as far as what they do and say.......
