multitudes on mondays: grace for the broken-hearted

February 20, 2012

another monday morning, the start to a new week.

We had a full, yet relaxing weekend, full of family time and just getting things done.

But no matter how busy I seem to keep, there’s a sadness looming in my soul.

it’s a sadness over what’s been lost and an uncertainty of what lies ahead.

a grief over wanting to change what was in hopes of making tomorrow better.

I try to keep busy so that I am not consumed with the thoughts, the memories, and the overwhelming sadness, but sometimes, no matter how hard I try, I can’t escape it all.

but I’m realizing something.

through the sorrow and the pain, I am ever aware of the love of my Savior.

He continues to meet me through music and through his Word.

And through the chaos in my heart, he is the One who breaks through.

He’s helping me to see that it’s okay to be sad and that grief is normal and necessary.

But even more importantly than that, he keeps reminding me that he is my Joy and the lifter of my head…..

.Psalm 3:3
But you, O LORD, are a shield about me, my glory, and the lifter of my head.
Psalm 3:2-4 (in Context) Psalm 3 (Whole Chapter)

**i’m linking up with Ann today as we continue to count his many gifts…..

…chic-fil-a on a Friday night with the family
…friends who often know my heart better than I do…and they aren’t afraid to tell me
…a man who still makes my heart skip a beat when he walks through the door
…a fresh start to eating healthy
…a sunday afternoon spent with friends
….a mild winter
…flowers on the table in the middle of winter
…a sweet 11-year-old who is gracing us with her ability to make pancakes
…a lazy president’s day…..ahhhhhh
…blogging

    He continues to meet me through music and through his Word. He is always there with us, isn’t He. Grateful to hear through your difficult time you are feeling His love. The flowers are so pretty. A man who still makes my heart skip a beat when he walks through the door… aww… that is so sweet!
