Hanging in there...

I'm hanging in there!
This process has been tough for sure.
Trying to stay "in life" has not always been easy.
BUT I feel like the Lord is giving me exactly what I need to get through each day!
Some main things are scriptures that remind me who, how, and why!

Psalm 29:11, "The Lord gives His people strength. The Lord blesses them with peace." I have for sure needed an abundance of both these last 6 weeks.

And then this verse in 2 Corinthians 1:9, "...we stopped relying on ourselves and learned to rely on God." Truly... I CAN NOT do this! I need Him to give me what I need for each step... whether grieving, working, or loving others.

And then Isaiah 58:11, "The Lord will guide you continually, giving you water when you are dry and restoring your strength..." Truly, I feel dry and He is watering my soul. Giving me exactly what I need when I need it!

I am so thankful for the provision of His Word! And then the other ways He is providing... little things from people saying they are thinking about me, answers to specific prayers, fun little distractions like raccoons in the chimney, and PEACE! It has truly been beyond my understanding. This storm is hard, I'm trying to not rush through it, and I'm trying to listen and be faithful.
I'm going to disappear this weekend. Take time to process, rest, be filled up. Thankful for the gift of a place to stay and praying for sunshine!!!
