Thank you for your prayers for me. I am finding a peace in soul. Don't get me wrong, if I sit still and think about my children who are not at home anymore, I can begin to feel a deep mourning setting.
But, let me tell you about my JESUS!!
Just after my last post, I hit send and went to check on the girls. Here is what I found.
Before any of you had begun to pray for me, the LORD was answering my cries. I had to laugh.
Later in the evening I visited a few blogs, one of which was Katie's. If you have time, I implore you to click here and read her last two posts. Katie reminded me that Jesus is all I need, that He longs to be the source of my joy, my peace, and my happiness. I think I have sometimes substituted the joy of parenting for the joy of the LORD. I must give my heart fully and completely to JESUS.
I am certain that each of us have, at some time, found ourselves drifting into despair. Take heart. We're in good company. David was greatly distressed...but David encouraged himself in the LORD his God .I can choose to encourage myself as well. I will choose to rest in His word, to speak His promises, to sing His praises. I can encourage myself in the LORD MY God! And, together, we can encourage one another too.
Be blessed today and everyday!
