holding life, moment by moment….

holding life for me, for us the last while has been….
moment by divine moment.

it’s been a ride like none other.
it’s held more tears than any other year in my life.
it’s been filled with questions that the answers are slowly coming together on.
it’s been overwhelming and emotionally draining.
it’s seemed, to say the least, crazy.
just crazy.
but, in the midst of a crazy, wild, sometimes painful ride, we’ve been believing, and clinging to the HOPE that clarity and beauty will rise from so much uncertainty.
and, it will.
it has.
it is!

in the midst of all the wild and overwhelming, it’s so amazingly awesome to know His peace.
peace that truly passes our understanding.
peace that can calm fears and override all the scary unknown.

these verses:
“Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your FAITHFULNESS. I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for him.” The Lord is good to those whose hope is in him, to the one who seeks him; it is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord.” ~Lamentatons 3:22-26

yes.
truly God’s mercy being new every morning is one of life’s greatest gifts that truly allows us to hold life’s moments with an open hand, yet cherished tightly within our hearts.
