When Life Gets Tough
There are those days...
and then there are THOSE days...
You know, when everything seems to be going wrong.
There's not enough money.
The children are not listening.
The housework never seems caught up.
You get more bad news.
You might be swimming in bills and debt.
Your husband, bless his heart, is trying his best and you can only find room to criticize.
You are faaaaaarrrrrr from the Lord.
You might not think you are, but you are.
You might think that because you are talking to Him all the time that you are close---but are you really?
Where is your heart?
Your heart, my dear sister?
Because I want you to know that you are not alone.
And there are many of you out there that are sharing the same hurt and pain.
The same struggles and the same fears.
If I could just reach out through this screen and give you a big hug.
And tell you that everything is going to be okay.
And that it will be.
He has you covered.
And He loves you, even when you don't love yourself.
When you are at your ugliest and at your worst.
So 'fight hard and hold fast'.
Don't give up.
Put your faith in the Great Provider.
You are in the Father's arms.
And though you might not realize it....
It is a wonderful place to be.
