Wait on the Lord;
Be of good courage,
And He shall strengthen your heart;
Wait, I say, on the Lord!
Psalm 27:14 NKJV
It’s been a difficult year so far. Lots of dark storm clouds, very little sunshine.
Some days, it feels like I’m living in the shadowlands. Like I’m being tested right to the limits. Like as soon as one thing is sorted out, something else comes to take its place, needing immediate attention. Like everyone else needs so much from me, their needs have to come ahead of my own.
Like some days, God is a long way away from me.
Yesterday, I read a wonderful blog post by Jennifer, on incourage.me. She said:
God is moving in our lives regardless of our ability to see it. There is grace for us. His love is beyond our comprehension. Allow Him to fill your heart. Christ can change us immeasurably through His grace.
He covers us in the grace and healing we need. Bring yourself as close to Him as possible and stay there. Ask Him in faith and you will find grace even in the shadow of darkness, and His grace will change your life.
I needed to hear that. Maybe you do, too?
