Life Lately.

IMG_6110This is a different Life Lately post. I’ve been thinking about posting for a while, and keep grasping for words and ways to start. Lately I’ve been learning the meaning of trust and surrender, and knowing where the source of my strength is.

          Psalm 121
 I lift up my eyes to the hills.
 From where does my help come?
 My help comes from the Lord,
 who made heaven and earth.

 He will not let your foot be moved;
 he who keeps you will not slumber.
 Behold, he who keeps Israel
 will neither slumber nor sleep.

 The Lord is your keeper;
 the Lord is your shade on your right hand.
 The sun shall not strike you by day,
 nor the moon by night.

 The Lord will keep you from all evil;
 he will keep your life.
 The Lord will keep
 your going out and your coming in
 from this time forth and forevermore.

I find it hard to even think about everything that happened, much less post about it. I shared some on Instagram and Facebook. I guess it’s hard to share the feelings/emotions we’ve gone through without feeling vulnerable. I keep thinking, maybe with time I’ll be able to share more. My posts might be a little disjointed; be assured, though, I still love organizing (it really is a wonderful coping mechanism).

Hold your family close today.

  1. ❤️ you friend! Your perspective has been so positive! May the Lord continue to give you grace for looking to Him and choosing thankfulness and positivity! How we live this life is so much about perspective. About laying down our lives and trusting to a measure we didn’t even know existed. I’m so thankful for our High Priest, our Hope! ❤️

  2. I appreciated your post so much. This kind of (I’m unsure how to put my thoughts into words) but i think it could be considered spiritual growing is so difficult. It asks so much, its so personal. I’ve learned to see Pauls words in Philippians 4:11-13 (NLT) through new eyes “Not that I was ever in need, for I have learned how to be content with whatever I have. I know how to live on almost nothing or with everything. I have learned the secret of living in every situation, whether it is with a full stomach or empty, with plenty or little. For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength.” It’s super hard to give all control of ur life, ur child to someone else and yet when you hold your children with open arms instead of closed arms there’s such freedom, safety and peace because Christ supplies all we need. We no longer need to be the one in control. You’re continually in my prayers. Brenda
