As I sit down to write this, I'm kind of at a loss for words. If it was either from my somewhat vague Instagram's, or my lack of blog posting lately...you were probably inclined to think my family has been going through something lately. Well, its true.
I'll never understand why certain things happen the way they do. I often wonder why God allows some extremely painful experiences into our lives. Then I remember that there is no point in worrying. God has me in His hands. To inform you, I won't be sharing on my blog what happened last week, because frankly, its not my story to share. But it's tested my faith in ways I never thought possible. Then it hit me; God allows things into our lives to make us stronger. To make us better. To prepare us for a future only He can see. To use our story to help others one day...and THAT gives me hope, friends.
If you know me at all, you know I'm an extremely optimistic person. I don't usually stay upset for too long, and I can brush things off rather easily. The only way I made it through last week was by the grace of God...and because of my amazing husband. Never have I ever understood what I did to deserve such an amazing man. He held me while I cried, he cheered me up when I needed it, but most importantly? He was PRESENT. Most of the time there weren't actual words that could comfort me, because the situation we were put in was downright ugly. Yet having him there along the way made me feel better, all week long. He's seriously an angel.
So all of this to say that I can't thank my friends and family enough for helping me through it. Even those who have no idea what's going on, have still tried to come to the rescue anyway. I have literally felt covered in prayer the last seven days, and that's just what I needed. I received so many kind gestures and seriously can say that each one brought tears to my eyes! I know I've been pretty absent in the last week but I just could't put on a "face" and blog about happy stuff when life felt anything but that. However, last week is over, I'm moving on. Things have happened that can't be undone, but we're praying for God to do something big in this situation, because I know that He can! If you've got things going on your life... know that you aren't alone! You CAN pull through this, because you're strong, you're beautiful, and you're a child of God.
I don't know what tomorrow holds, but I know Who holds tomorrow.
