The sun is bright outside and the birds are singing oh so beautifully. This is the day that the Lord has made. I will rejoice.
I have waited for days like this all winter long and they are finally here. I really thought winter would last forever but it didn't. I can feel myself slowly climbing out of the valley that I have been in all winter long. I feel like I can once again see the top of the mountain. What a beautiful sight it is. I keep reminding myself I will once again be on that mountain top and will be able to look back on this journey and rejoice.
I feel like sometimes over these past five months I have not done the best job of focusing on Christ. I have read about women who have had so much faith they never once wavered. Well i have not been that woman but I know my heavenly father still loves me. There have been many times where I have cried out to God and wondered if He could even hear me. I know He did. On my darkest days I felt Him very gently pick me up and tell me, "I will carry you today, my child. Put your head on my shoulder and rest for a while."
Today as I was doing my dishes I thanked God for getting me this far and I started to feel that fear rise up in me but then I remembered He was there with me and there was nothing to fear.
