Be Still and Know
Grief sometimes hits unexpectedly like a tsunami wave.
In this hard moment, when I can’t breathe, when the tears won’t stop, when I want to call my dad and can’t, I hold on to the words and love of my Father God.
He is with me, and I am loved by Him. So I have to keep fighting the good fight.
God is faithful. Everything in my life is more than I can handle, but God has me. God will make everything right, and bring me through another hard time in my life.
I surrender my pain and my heartbreak. I know Jesus weeps with me, that I can lean on Him, and all will be well in His time. It will be better than I ever could imagine.
He can fix my shattered hopes and dreams. He can guide me to a new path and purpose. He will help me figure out how to support myself. He will never leave me. He will carry me in this moment, and walk with me every step of the way in my pain, and letting go of the past.
I want to move forward, keeping my eyes on Jesus, while he helps me follow my dreams to write and take pictures, to use my pain to help others heal, to share my hope in Him with the world to glorify God.
God is working a miracle in me, and in the end, my tears will be transformed into shouts of joy. My life surrendered to Him, will be better than I ever imagined impossible!
With hope in Jesus,
Psalm 46:10-11 NIV
He says, “Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations
I will be exalted in the earth.”
The LORD almighty is with us;
The God of Jacob is our fortress.
