I have something to share this morning, and if it just helps one person out there, then it was worth the share. As you all know, my dad passed away last Wednesday, and to say that it has been difficult is an understatement. I literally put my head in the sand over the weekend and became a recluse. My pain was overwhelming and I thought my heart would just simply stop from all the pain. I thought I would never get over this and I just wanted to sleep so I would not feel any more pain.
My husband and family have been so uplifting and supportive during this time, but not even their love for me could alleviate my pain. Well, this morning I feel better than I have in a very long time. I am sure God will use this time of sadness to work something for His glory, and I can see that already happening with me. Last night as my husband was away, I felt a refreshing as I have not felt in a very long time. As I read God's word, I could feel His arms around me and the peace that He offered simply took over.
It is true as He says ... when we are at our lowest, He shows up the strongest. I am just thankful for His unconditional and faithful love, His many mercies and forgiveness, and His peace that truly surpasses all understanding. I pray the same for all of you. Have a most blessed day!
