On days like these

Stop trying to push your way through this day and rest in your Father's arms. Pour out your heart to Him every pain, every fear, don't hold anything back. Then let Him hold you when it hurts. Rest in Him and let His peace fill your heart. This peace doesn't mean you don't have things to do, things to be concerned about or even that the ache and weight of it all goes away. His peace comes in the middle of it all.

On my Knees

I woke up the next morning and the fear that had gripped my heart the day before was replaced with peace.

If it is Strength You See…

When someone hears my story I sometimes get told
"you're strong..."
or
"God won't give you more than you can handle"
Β 
I've often just smile but I really don't like being told this. They may see the girl standing in front of them at the moment and she may look strong. But what they don't know is that I am literally biting my tongue because I don't want to cry (again).
