Struggling


I have been really struggling, but I have learned that
 in the darkest times God is still with me.
Jesus truly is the strength of my heart. When everyone fails me and I fail others and myself, he is still here.


When my heart was grieved
and my spirit embittered,
I was senseless and ignorant;
I was a brute beast before you.
Yet I am always with you;
you hold me by my right hand. 
You guide me with your counsel, 
and afterward you will take me into glory.
Whom have I in heaven but you? 
And earth has nothing I desire besides you. 
My flesh and my heart may fail, 
but God is the strength of my heart
and my portion forever.
Psalms 73: 21-26

When the world is tucked in tight, dreaming fast asleep. 
When the tears flow endlessly and seem to never cease.
When loneliness fills my soul and the darkness is closing in. 
 My sweet Jesus it is then, you are truly my best of friends.

You may never know that JESUS is all you need, 
until JESUS is all you have.

Thinking of you today, Tesha. One step at a time. Beautiful flowers and verses. Thank you for sharing.

Almost 3 years later, Jesus is just as sweet as He was right after Reese went to be with Him. He never gets tired of our pain.

I love Jonathan's name in the sand. I know that blessed your heart seeing his strong name!

Praying for you, dear Tesha.

That is one of my favorite Scriptures the Lord used in my life in August 2009, when I was pregnant with Lily and came back to Him.
