When We do not Understand.....

Often life is hard. I have shared how I count gifts and how God has changed the way I "see" life....   it truly has been the way He has rescued me.

Even in the ugly.....    I seek His gifts.  I will admit at times it is just HARD.  Some days... (like today) I find myself weary.

My sustaining longing.....  thorn in my side.....   cross that I bear.... whatever you want to call it....  is still what it is.  I have changed the way I view it... and like I said most days...   HOPE, PEACE and GRACE carry me.  God's love never fails.  He is faithful and He cares for me.

It is still HARD.  I do not share much about it. I sometimes stare at the screen and wonder how much I should share....  or hold back.  There is a fine line between being real.....   and just being discreet. I struggle with that line at times.

Through these long years it has calmed and other struggles have reared up.....   and sometimes I forget how bad it was .... or still could be.....   but it is still something that I have to give to God daily.

Lately, other struggles have calmed and my sustaining longing seems to be huge.   I know that I know that God is the only one who can bring me the peace that passes all understanding.

Even when we do not understand....  we can lean in and trust HIM.

Change the life of a child today!

  1. Praying for you! Love you!

  2. I think, as you do Teena, that we have to be very careful about what we share - especially when others are involved. It is enough to know a friend is hurting. I will be praying for you. The One who loves you deeply sees and knows and cares.
