**I wanted to give a brief explanation to how I choose to blog. Many of the times what I write and choose to share here on the blog isn’t always current, as in, I wrote this today. It often is writings I have written in the moment of my life, then I give it time to settle, and over time I choose to share pieces of my journey with you on the blog. Please know, I am not wallowing in a puddle of tears today, I was at one point in the previous weeks. But today, I am strong. No need to worry. xoxo Katie**
My heart is swirling in the loss and sorrows– yet your light burns within bringing a burst of hope into the midnight hours of my weariness.
I find myself in deep reflection, pondering, bringing all my questions before you
But I don’t question your goodness or your love in all this, yet darkness keeps pressing in, trying to flood out the hope I cling too.
I am desperate, outstretched I lay before you
Emptied before you I sing out for reprieve
Finding ways to worship you through the faucet of tears that find me
Your love, rich in mercy pours upon a tired daughter
I can’t help but stand in awe of my Creator
In His intimately detailed designs of life my soul stirs, and bids me come near
I may be empty, yet he has filled with hope
I may feel weak, yet I am strong
I may feel confused, yet peace sings quiet over my chaos
I may feel the tidal wave of fear rising, yet I am brave before the King of Kings
I may have many questions, but I have the answer in Jesus
I may get discouraged, but the sweet taste of His joy fills me
I may struggle with the weight of depression, yet I am renewed day by day
I fall undone before my Maker
Your love is written over my life by the very breath of your Spirit you exhaled into my soul
That left me breathless, but filled with hope in our Lord! I love you and your amazing, thought provoking writing.
