Trusting Through The Tears

For we walk by faith, not by sight. -2 Corinthians 5:7 (NJKV)

We just received the news. It’s not good. Not on one account but two.

We sit on our couch and offer words of encouragement to one another.

“God will provide.”

“We’ll be okay.”

“We can make this work.”

“Things will change, but we’ll be stronger in the end.”

“God has never failed us before. He isn’t about to start now.”

We hug and kiss and he leaves to go blow up tanks with the boys.

I retreat to the kitchen to make dinner. I crank the praise music and I trust.

I really do.

And yet the tears come.

Today I have the honor of guest posting at Pressing In and Pressing On! To continue reading this post on Starla’s wonderfully encouraging blog, CLICK HERE.

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. –Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)

        I really think crying was a very healthy response! God gives us tears and releases those hormones that calm us. It’s a great step in getting beyond the fear. I love you Sister. XO

    Hello Heather,
    This is really lovely. I can very well relate to everything you said here. Thing will sometimes go wrong in life i mean, its nature and there is certainly nothing we can do about it but, its good to always trust in God knowing he will always be there for us through thick and thin.

    I love the bible quote that “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future” and having this in mind always should be enough to keep us going.

    Thanks for sharing Heather.

      Jeremiah 29:11 is one of my favorite verses, Theodore! There is so much peace, comfort, and hope in that truth. Thanks for reading and for taking the time to leave an encouraging comment. Blessings.
