Those times when the tears flow more than your words 😢💔 #encouragement#Godisourrefuge#prayers#klove#thoughtfortheday .
this week was my mom's bday.... and while my daughter posted something that said it best... .. she is celebrating her birthday with Jesus and how awesome that must be 💕
which is comforting to know, however it still just seems so unreal most days. I tried to stay busy this week, staying off social media so I wouldn't see all the posts and somehow I managed to only cry a couple times... then yesterday it just hit like a ton of bricks 😢 I even got short with a customer representative and had to apologize... is it just me or does it seem strange how grief can just come in waves and how it effects our daily lives. While it's only been 2 months since mom passed it feels like forever!💔 All these firsts are so difficult... from my first birthday without her (which is just a couple days ahead of Mother's Day and unexpectedly hit worse than Mother's Day itself) now her birthday... even Father's Day this weekend is going to be so hard for all of us, especially my dad and then his birthday is this month as well. So many significant days so soon after her passing. My parents just celebrated 54 years of marriage just a month before her unexpected passing. I'm just praying for God's continued comfort for my family as we all try to navigate these days and months the best we can. Thankful for my faithful Father in heaven... He continues to give strength and peace for these days when the doubt and regret creep in... the what ifs and the whys... praying His voice and promises keep Satan's attacks and lies at bay. He is our strong tower! Thank you Jesus for your grace and unchanging love. We can always trust that you'll be here to pick us up when we feel like we can't go another mile
I feel like I've been a bundle of mess these past few days after our super fun family vacation. My husband and I started going through our apartment and purging to make more space, Alaina has been cranky going to bed some nights and then up crazy early others, I feel like I can't quite keep on top of the messes that she makes, and because of all this, I've been an irritable cranky mom/wife.😔 But, oh how freeing and peaceful it is when I come to Jesus and ask for His help.❤️ I battle with trying to do it on my own, but God wants us to come to Him boldly with everything and lay it all down at His feet! I think sometimes it's our pride that stops us from doing that.
Psalm 62:8 (NCV) says this: "People, trust God all the time. Tell him all your problems because God is our protection." 😊 The NIV version says, "...pour out your hearts to him." When I poured my heart out to my mighty Savior, I felt Him take it all and give me rest. He can handle my crazy days and yours! We just gotta run to Him! ..................
“Trust in him at all times, you people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge.”
Psalm 62:8 💚
“But as for me, I am poor and needy; may the Lord think of me. You are my help and my deliverer; you are my God, do not delay.”
Psalm 40:17 💚
David is so honest with God. He knows that God wants him to pour out his heart, and he does exactly that, all the time. Our emotions are not hidden from God. He wants us to lay them all on Him. 💚

God is our refuge and strength,
an ever-present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way
and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
though its waters roar and foam
and the mountains quake with their surging.There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,
the holy place where the Most High dwells.
God is within her, she will not fall;
God will help her at break of day.
Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall;
he lifts his voice, the earth melts.
The Lord Almighty is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress.
He says, “Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth.”
Psalm 46:1-7, 10
God is present, no matter your circumstances today. Hold on to hope!
