Though you slay me...


I have some pictures ready to post but this has been on my heart and I wanted to share this incredible video my friend posted on Facebook this weekend....this song and video has truly blessed me over the last several days....I know so many people who have and are going through some unimaginable things....I'm a fixer...I hate when things, events happen that I can't just fix....I have found it is easier for me to suffer than to watch others I love suffer...during my deepest moments of hurt and suffering is when I feel the Lord drawing me closest to him...it is hard in those moments to see that it isn't meaningless and finding that He is enough is the sweetest thing of all...

I love this quote by the blogger Leslie
"I find beauty in not only the beautiful things in life, but the bittersweet and sad as well. To me, there is something poignantly lovely about the human experience from its splendor to its grief. God created all our emotions, not just the happy ones, and for His good purposes. That's why a good cry can feel so good. And hitting our limits forces us to look outside ourselves for a Savior. It is in the plea, when we're at our end, that we can find that which is truly life-giving. Personally, my moments of deepest grief, deepest pain, have resulted in the most beautiful seasons in my heart. I've met God more intimately in those moments than in all the other pleasant ones combined. What isn't completely lovely about that?"

I mean if this isn't so true then I don't know what is
If you are currently struggling know my heart is heavy for you...know that He is enough...
do NOT lose heart!

  1. This has definitely been on repeat for me. I agree, watching others suffer is the hardest thing. I so badly want to take their hurt away. It's a reminder for me too, to allow others to encourage me when I'm hurting. I'm thankful for a God who is with us every step.
