I was going to share pictures of my Easter & talk about how amazing the weekend at church was, but sometimes I just need to be honest with you.

Sometimes I just need to keep the happy pictures to myself for another day.

Sometimes I just need to ask you all to pray.

I am, as my husband tells me, battling my fleshly spirit. I’m letting it overshadow what the Lord has in store for us.

He’s right. Completely, 100% right.

Just when I think everything is figured out & there is a sun peeking through the dark clouds, the ground gives way & I’m left feeling as though I’m sinking. It’s a feeling that is totally avoidable when I truly place my trust in God.

When I realize that…

I’m not in control. I will never be IN control. Why? Because my Savior is the one that holds my story.

The emotional roller coaster we are on is going to end. Rides always end. The highs we just felt 24 hours ago to the lows we are feeling now, I know that God is not through with writing my story.

But right this second, I’m battling the overwhelming feeling of hopelessness and worry. Just being honest. It’s not pretty in my heart.

Still, I’m holding on, with the promise that my God does not fail. He does not make mistakes. He always knows what He’s doing.

Praying for you, friend. Remember:

"God is bigger than
the air I breathe
the world we'll leave
and God will save the day
and all will say
my Glorious"

Liz, I just wanted to tell you that I admire you for just being completely honest with us and with yourself. This life is crazy and hectic and I'm sure you're feeling that completely, but just realizing that things aren't always going to be completely perfect is the way to being happier about it. Thank you for sharing and reminding me that God's always got his hand on things.
I'll be praying. :)

What i don't understood is in fact how you are no longer actually much more well-appreciated than you might be now. You are so intelligent. You understand therefore significantly relating to this subject, made me in my opinion consider it from a lot of various angles. Its like women and men aren't fascinated until it is
something to accomplish with Lady gaga! Your individual stuffs great.
At all times care for it up!
