the words i long to hear...

I know you're weary
I know you've had all you can bear
And now you ask of me on bended knee
I promise I'll be there

I've watched you struggle
Yet I can see how much you've grown
Child, could you feel my power in your darkest hour?
You were not alone

Be still and know that I am God
I'm by your side
Whom shall you fear
I'll give you strength my child
I am here
Be still and know that I am God
And there's no prayer
That I don't hear
Lift up your head
My child
I am here

--my daughter has seen far too many tears run down my face the past few months. Too often she is the one being a comforter. I pray and plead for peace. I pray and plead for refuge. Stress.Anxiety.Uncertainty. I feel it. I breathe it in daily.

I was sitting in church feeling a little the same way and we all of the sudden sang Did you think to pray. Those words really told me something.

Also if you read the words to Where Can I Turn for Peace or Master the Tempest is Raging that might help as well those usually comfort me a little bit!

Hang in there you are a wonderful lady, mom and wife! You are doing the best you can and the Lord will bless you!
