Good morning, friend.
It has been a minute since I've written. It’s May, so in the land of motherhood, that means living life at mach speed and trying to remember to keep all the children bathed. Recitals, graduations, field days, and award ceremonies - oh my! It’s all we can do to keep up. At the end of the day, we are exhausted and it is no wonder why.
This May for my family, however, has brought with it the added sorrow of laying a loved one to rest. It was one of those situations we sort of saw coming, but would have never been ready for. The days that have followed have seemed a bit surreal. The whole world shifted a little and we aren’t quite sure what to make of it just yet.
Do you know what I’m saying? Ever been there? In one of those seasons where the world keeps on keeping on, but your heart just lags behind a bit? From the outside, you’re keeping up okay, but all day long, you know you’re not quite keeping step the way you’d like to?
Do you know your Father is the one that keeps you moving forward? Do you realize He’s the one that keeps filling your lungs with air and your sky with sunshine? Do you know that every good and perfect gift comes from Him? Do you know that even when you can’t see those gifts, He can see you? It’s true.
This world is not our home, sweet friend, but we can absolutely trust the One who walks us through it. Lean on Him today. Tell Him all about what's going on in that heart of yours. He knows. He sees. He loves you.
Just for today, let yourself live with both feet planted right here in this single May day. It's enough. He's got the rest covered. Believe He’ll give you everything you need for whatever fills your calendar this month and every one to come.
In Christ alone,
