How are you friends? I feel an overwhelming need to ask. I have so much emotional turmoil and chaos I have witnessed over the last month that my heart cries out to God for his beloved. If I am seeing it firsthand in my daily life, I can only assume it is also swirling out there in the social zone.
Accept is often a difficult word to swallow. I have had to accept many painful truths in my life. Today, I am battling to accept another.
I have prayed and thought about how to word all that is on my mind in a matter of five minutes, but I fear I have not the eloquence or ability at this time. Secrets have escaped the dungeons. Once a prisoner far below the surface for her entire life, the chains were broken and the bars removed, and the dark whispers of the past are out. The secrets have found their way into the present.
I have to accept the facts. I don’t want to. However, I am facing the challenge with Jesus by my side. My great comforter is taking charge in my weakness, as He is always trusted to do. Riddled with both apprehension and fiery determination, I continue to fight. I’ve battled such things before, so I have no fear.
I know I am not alone. I know that God goes before me. I am acutely aware of each step He takes. In my eyes, I see a giant among men. A true victor, God is good. His total protection covers me. I feel the layers upon my being. It is in His presence I find comfort, hope, perseverance, and peace.
Most importantly, it is in his love, I find myself. I accept His love, guidance, protection, comfort, and peace.
Our family could use your prayers.
