Laundry and dishes,
work and then teaching
day after day
week after week
month after month
I hear the voices of so many.
Weary just from trying to keep up.
Feeling worthless and used.
In the midst of those difficult stretches
it is all too easy to lose perspective.
But you are more than what you do.
Yes, so much more.
As the sun was created to give light
And the moon to reflect that light
You were created for His Purpose.
In the midst of the stable
Mary could have forgotten that
Her precious boy,
was the Son of God.
Weary from the travel
things so completely beyond her and Joseph’s control
But then in the middle of all of this
she heard the shepherds’ tale of angels singing
she marveled at the quiet of the stable
She sensed the Presence of Strength beyond her own.
God is always like that.
Yes, when it gets the hardest
He gently moves in with compassion and care.
He is faithful and true.
Feel yourself wrapped in His Arms of encouragement today.
Listen to His gentle Voice
speaking tender words of cheer.
He knows where you are.
He sees the effort.
He knows your need.
Trust in Him.
For when the days are darkest His Light shines brightest.
I find that that is always true.
Look for it.
“My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. (IICor.12:9)
His Love for you is wider than the widest ocean
deeper than the deepest sea
full and running over love
strong and steady.
Embrace it today.
It’s for you.
