Rest In His Shadow

So you feel undone, bent and broken, shattered and frazzled? What now? Where do you turn in your moments of it? In the long hours of it? In the days, the weeks, and the months of it? Maybe the years of its never-ending chaotic twists and turns where it relentlessly hunts you down to gnaw you apart much like a wild animal stalks it’s prey? The heavy heart it carries makes it so difficult to move forward ~ to even take a small step let alone make it to some place of destination. Maybe it’s depression has you caught in its web, entrapped you in its sticky circle of poison, relentless to let you go! Yes ~ for sure ~ What now? Sight and insight is limited with high walls ~ dark and cold! Choices are difficult! Thinking is impossible! Who can see through it? Well, right there, and right now, know that you are loved by a God who is right there and right now beside you, and He’s ready to shelter you under His wing, hide you in the cleft of the rock and love you just for who you are in the mess and heap of confusion you feel inside. He’s ready to carry you when you can’t move and bless you through the good and bad. He’s ready to grace you over the next step, the next hurdle, and through the deepest and steepest of valleys ~ just because He cares!

When you can’t see past the shadows ~ rest in His, and trust Him there ~ right there in the dark, for the son still shines illuminating brightly in the shadows! So hey, beautiful one, grasp the hem of His garment of love as He brushes by there even when it’s not felt nor understood ~ because it never will be understood. His love goes beyond anything we can imagine! It’s just the way God is and it’s His perfect presence there right now before you ~ for you!

Psalm 91: 1
“He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence.”

Ephesians 3:17-20
And I pray that Christ will be more and more at home in your hearts as you trust in Him. May your roots go down deep into the soil of God’s marvellous love. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep His love really is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is so great you will never fully understand it. Then you will be filled with the fullness of life and power that comes from God. Now all glory to God, who is able through His power to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think

Let’s Be Honest

So sometimes we just have to be honest and say we don’t have the faintest idea of what to do next. It’s just all come at once and the mind is full of conundrum on its way to nowhere. We just can’t be all to everyone, and we can’t do all that we want because we can just be wrapped up all so tightly in knots impossible to loosen. Illness, sickness, depression, misery, anger, aches and pains, and a whole host of things can hold us down and well ~ we need some kind of direction for sure and some kind of down to earth guidance and some kind of solid advice with some kind of good insight and some kind of good plan! Yeah, some days that’s just about where we are in this journey and life looks long and dreary.

So, then, beautiful soul, get before your Maker and just be honest and ask! Take those knots into His throne room and lay them down at the feet of the Master. The Creator who spoke life into being. You know He’s got the next best move for your steps, and those doors? Well, they’ll open or close at His command if we wait honestly and patiently on Him. You gotta know that! The Psalmist reminds us in Psalm 37:23, “The LORD makes firm the steps of the one who delights in Him;”…..Such an awesome promise to stand those unsure feet on isn’t it? So take delight in our Lord and let Him lead your heart and your mind today into His perfect will and into His perfect plan of action.

Not only do our unsure feet need stability but our unsure hands and efforts needs some kind of confirmation that we work in His will and I love the prayer of Moses, a man of God, who led God’s people from slavery in Egypt to Mount Sinai where he received the law and established a covenant with God. Read Psalm 90 and in 90:17, He asks for God’s approval and to make their efforts successful. “And may the Lord our God, show us His approval and make our efforts successful.” NLT Study Bible NLTranslation.

So yeah, today, beautiful one, today, let’s ask for God’s favor to rest on our lives and trust Him to make our efforts work for His glory and our benefit. He’s got you and you can know that! ❤

Mom Awards?


So you’ve just wiped up spilled milk, scrubbed crayon off the wall, threw in your fourth load of wash for the day, wrestled up a quick, nutritious lunch for your hungry brood, kissed a hurt and sealed it with a band-aid! You’ve rocked, and lulled, and sung sweet lullabyes, while all the while just wanting to have a spare minute for yourself but you can’t find one anywhere. The day wears on and the hours are tedious and so the same with whines, and cries, and fussiness and wet diapers, and quarrels, and how come no one ever told you that motherhood assigned you referee credentials? So, you’re a mom, and when you signed up for parenthood, you were unaware of it’s strange mix of excitement, fear, joy, panic, happiness, sorrow, fun, or anxiety. But it is and there you are right up there in the top ranking of it all, and it’s awesome but it’s scary, and it’s sheer delight but it’s frustration, and it’s rewarding but it’s so time consuming. Oh so time consuming!!

Yeah, motherhood; there’s really nothing like it on the planet! It’s challenges are out of this world and it’s rocked yours to the moon and back. It’s got you booked solid ~ hook, line and sinker and drowning in it’s many demands! The hats you wear are ridiculously impossible most of the time and your sanity? Well, it’s gone south for a break and right now as you think you might go under for the very last time, know that you won’t! You won’t because motherhood job is the toppest of the top notch jobs in the whole wide world. You’ve been entrusted with gifts from heaven, all delicate ‘little life’, wrapped up and so tenderly placed in your lap. And there you are!! Smack dab in the middle of days that don’t end and nights that don’t sleep. Maybe laced with depression and baby blues and just plain difficult moments to endure. Hey mom, those gifts of life are yours to cherish, to love, and to nurture, guide, teach and train and when that journey overwhelms your beautiful soul, remember King Lemuel’s mom had some good words of advice for him in Proverbs 31: 10, 17, 25, 26, 28. She told him exactly how fortunate he would be to find a women of noble character just like you. You may be tired and exhausted but know beautiful soul, your value is outstanding…. “A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies…….she sets about her work vigorously; her arms are strong for her tasks…she is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come. She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue….Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also and he praises her.”

God hasn’t promised pastel rainbows for your days of motherhood, in fact some days might just well be purple and red mixed with blue, but He has promised joy to the mom who seeks Him and grace for the one who walks the ho – hum of the daily journey by His side. No, your rewards won’t necessarily be seen nor given out today, there in your little kitchen nook, but your loyal works and your tedious steps will etch their memories into little hearts that will grow big and strong to become mom’s and dad’s of their own little gifts of life.

So mom, take heart! Your tasks performed faithfully today will navigate back and will find their way into your seasoned heart of hearts when all you have left are the memories of the long lost, good old days. So yeah, beautiful Mom, breathe and take a nap if you can but above all, enjoy these joyous but trying days of motherhood. They’ll be gone all to quickly. ❤

Little Thoughts For Big Days
Little Thoughts For Big Days

So despair has left you bent and broken, shattered and frazzled? No escape? What now? Where do you turn in your moment of it? In the long hours of it? In the days, the weeks, and the months of it? Maybe the years of it’s never ending chaotic twists and turns when it relentlessly hunts you down to tear you apart much like a wild animal stalks it’s prey? The heavy heart it carries makes it so difficult to move forward ~ to even take a small step let alone make it to some place of destination. Maybe the despair is depression itself that has you caught in it’s web, entrapped you in it’s sticky, circle of poison, relentless to let you go! Yes ~ for sure ~ What now? Sight and insight is limited with high walls ~ dark and cold! Choices are difficult! Thinking is impossible! Who can see through it?

Well, right there, and right now, know that you are loved by a God who is right there and right now beside you, ready to shelter you under His wing of protection and love you just for who you are, in that total mess and heap of confusion that you feel inside. He’s ready to carry you when you can’t move and bless you through the good and bad. He’s ready to grace you over the next step, the next hurdle, and through the deepest and steepest of valleys ~ just because He cares! When you can’t see past the shadows ~ even your own shadow, trust Him there ~ in the dark, for the sun shines and the Son shines bright in the shadows! Grasp the hem of His garment of love there even when it’s not felt nor understood ~ because it never will be understood. It goes beyond anything that we can imagine! It’s just the way God is and it’s His perfect presence there now ~ for you!
