midst the fog






The festivities and the noise of celebrations are just beginning.  This is a hard time for so many, and I am not exempt from it all.

This disease feeds on stress and anxieties.  And mine have quadrupled since this summer.  Family disconnection has added so much pain to my life.  Accepting that no, my family has no love for me or mine, due to my love for Jesus Christ, has been a trial that I am walking at the moment. 

Then, this time arrives, and my body is rejecting all the emotional hurt that has been my companion for the past months. 

But you know what Dear Ones?

My Lord is here!  Right here!  Midst the fog of physical pain and emotional upheaval that has become my life as of late! 

His promises come alive so vividly in my heart!  I know that I am not alone and I will 
walk through this valley with Him by my side. 

Are you going through a circumstance that has dominated your thoughts and your heart of late? 
Give them to Him Dear One...and be at peace.

"Casting the whole of your care, all your anxieties,
all your worries, all your concerns,
once and for all 
on HIM,
for HE cares for you affectionately and cares 
about you watchfully."

  2. Amen to this, Mari. We must cast it all on Him and always remember that He is with us and will see us through the hurt and upheaval. HE is ALL that matters, and He wants all of our heart. The rest, He will deal with in His time. Have a joyful heart, sweet one, He loves and cares for you. ♥

  4. This time of year tends to be hard for so many, myself included! It was almost unbearable until my doctor put me on an anti-depressant and 10,000mg Vit. D, per day! Of course, there are still things that bog me down and no amount of medicine or vitamins will help. I miss my Mama, so much, during Christmas, because she was like a little girl when it came to the lights and decorations. That usually gets me more than anything but I have learned to handle it.

    Grace & Peace,
    Pam

  7. I hope Christmas brings you joy Mari! I know it is sad to be treated as such by your relatives, but know they are the sorrowful ones who do not yet know Jesus. Andrea

  8. Your words are touching, Mari.
    It is so true, many lives are hurting for one reason or another, but praise the Lord, He is in the midst of it all and He cares over every little or big detail.
    Family can be the hardest when we choose to walk with Jesus, but keep doing what you know to be right and pleasing to your Savior.

    God bless you~~

  10. Such a powerful post you shared Mari, about the help of the Lord that takes us through the most difficult of situations, such as when there is family rejection because of our love for the Lord. I pray that the Lord blesses and encourages your heart greatly through this month, and keeps you close to Him! Many hugs to you today dear friend!
