I know that most (or all, lol) of my posts are about E&J but I really feel like I need to write this post.
There are times where I get this sense of comfort that comes over me. I can remember one time I blogged about it in this post. There was also the time about 3 days before my induction that I was lying in bed, nervous about what was going to happen, and then all of a sudden, I just felt better. Like I wasn't afraid anymore.
And then it happened again last night. We put E&J to bed and after Dan fell asleep, I just cried. I started thinking about going back to work and the emotions of that flooded over me and the tears just flowed. But as quickly as they started, they stopped. I felt something inside of me saying "It will be ok." I woke up this morning feeling like it will be ok. It won't be easy but then I realized that there is no promise that life will be easy. Its not. For every up, there are downs. For every joy, there are sorrows. That's life.
The promise that we do have is that, if we ask, God will give us comfort. And I do ask often. I ask for him to comfort me and to give me the strength to handle the things that happen in my life.
I heard this song yesterday and it really struck me.
There is hope for the helpless
Rest for the weary
Love for the broken heart
There is grace and forgiveness
Mercy and healing
He'll meet you wherever you are
Cry out to Jesus, Cry out to Jesus
