I am still here! Still wrestling with illness and kick-butt fatigue, but fighting best as I can…which some days I have more fight in me than others. In all of this struggle the past few weeks, I feel like I’ve drifted from God rather than drawing nearer. I hate that. On the bad days it is so hard to think, to focus. So it’s easier to just get up and move on. Don’t hate me, I’m just being real. Thankfully I do know that what is best for us is never easy. What is best always requires some effort and diligence on our part. But there is more…
He’s not finished with me (nor you) yet!
And I am so grateful for that!
I believe we all have seasons like this. The important thing is…we fight. Yes, I said we fight. Fight for what we know is right. Fight for what we know we need. Our Heavenly Father never refuses us when we come to Him. Yes, we can breathe a sigh of relief. He is gracious and loving toward all He has made.
“The Lord is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in lovingkindness.” Psalm 103:8
This morning…into this afternoon, I was fighting with a holy determination to meet with my Father and be in His Presence. After all, I desperately need Him. But also, I don’t want this Christmas season to come and be gone…without regaining and experiencing the awe and wonder of what I have in Him. What I truly have in this Greatest Gift of all.
So thank you for allowing me to share my Monday moment with you…His gift of this wonderful reminder to me…
As always, if you are encouraged at all, please leave a comment and/or share. I am humbly grateful you’ve taken the time to stop by.
