I just realized it’s 7:30pm (I’m on the west coast) and I haven’t blogged for today yet! So I made some instant coffee, and here I am listening to some old hymns on Pandora, while starting to write.
My spirit is troubled tonight. I was just reading through some of my friends blogs and Facebook messages and there is so much hurt out there. Some of these people are just shattered. Their lives are being ripped apart and they don’t know what to do. One thing I realized while reading through quite a few of these posts is that the person is still hanging on to hope, clinging to Jesus…barely hanging on but hanging on nonetheless. They are crying out to Jesus for help for their family members, while trying to be strong even though their hearts are breaking.
I admire my friends and I am so proud of them. Even through the midst of trials their faith is strong. It’s easy to become bitter, resentful and question why Lord why…but when we can keep holding on to hope we can feel the peace of God. I know that just saying the name, Jesus, can bring me comfort when I need it most. I just need to call out to Him. He is there, always has been and always will be. Oh how my heart still breaks for my precious friends but I am thankful for my faith and for hope.
