On My Way Home

As my morning is starting… I’m exhausted and overwhelmed already.  But I refuse to give in to it.

The throat is a little sore and sleep didn’t come easy last night.  Thoughts kept swirling in my head and sleep was difficult.

Family, conflicts, needs, personalities.  It’s all overwhelming.  Physically and emotionally.

As I talk to friends, it seems that so many of you too are being stretched, tested, sifted……

Call it what you may… Dealing with the demands of life, troubles and the crazy personalities of family in particular.

The fight to maintain a good attitude and not slip into self-pity is a challenge.  I refuse to lose that fight/challenge and give into my emotions and live in a miserable state…

This morning words of encouragement came through a song playing on the radio and I wanted to share them with you.  Be encouraged!

The band Building 429  says it much better than I could:  Hang in there, this is not our home…we are simply ON OUR WAY!  Let’s do it with grace,

“Where I Belong”

Sometimes it feels like I’m watching from the outside
Sometimes it feels like I’m breathing but am I alive
I will keep searching for answers that aren’t here to find
All I know is I’m not home yet
This is not where I belong
Take this world and give me Jesus
This is not where I belong
So when the walls come falling down on me
And when I’m lost in the current of a raging sea
I have this blessed assurance holding me.
All I know is I’m not home yet
This is not where I belong
Take this world and give me Jesus
This is not where I belong
When the earth shakes I wanna be found in You
When the lights fade I wanna be found in You
All I know is I’m not home yet
This is not where I belong
Take this world and give me Jesus
This is not where I belong
If you know Jesus, this is not your home.  The answers are not here.  We must work with difficult people through difficult situations.
If you’re not sure… I’d love to talk to you and encourage you and show you a Saviour that has you in His hand.
I’d love to pray for you in your struggles…. Let me know….. It helps to lift one another up in tough times.  Be encouraged, you are not walking alone!
