Although I’ve not posted a blog each week, I’ve been thinking of you.
I’ve been praying for you.
I wonder if you ever have days when you just want to give up?
Do you ever feel like you are at the end of your rope?
I’ve been there lately. I’m hanging on for dear life.
But God continues to remind me that He was sent to bind up the broken hearted and set the captive free.
I love this quote.
“When you reach the end of your rope, tie a knot in it and hang on.” – Thomas Jefferson.
It reminds me to hold on.
And I’m so glad I have friends to support me when I can’t hold on any longer.
One such friend sent me this link to a beautiful song by Shane and Shane titled “Though You Slay Me”
I hope you’ll listen to this YouTube rendition of the song. It spoke to my troubled heart.
Smack dab in the middle of the song (At 3 minutes and 24 seconds) are the words I needed to hear spoken by John Piper
I heard clearly from the Lord today.
All that is going on in my life is not in vain.
My affliction is light in comparison to the Glory of God.
Every millisecond of my misery is producing a peculiar glory.
Do not lose heart, dear friend. There IS hope.
Get alone with God every morning until you preach the Word into your mind and soul.
And then you will sing with confidence as you trust Him to bring you HOPE.
He is with me….
Job 13:15 Though He slay me, yet will I trust Him.
Even so, I will defend my own ways before Him.
Oh how I needed this today.
How can I pray for you?
Tell me your story and we will hold on together.
