More Crying!?

It’s been a long road.
It was July of last year that God spoke to us that “He had need of us elsewhere,”
and we began our transition. That’s been a while… Like TEN months!
(Note: one more week until we join Chilly in Vermont permanently! YAY!)

Lots of hurdles & zillions of emotions…
-some of them float past quickly
-some hang on too long
-some of them just straight up smack me in the face!

This morning as I sat with Jesus & His Word, and cried
(like I have every single morning for months & months),
we had this conversation:

“Lord I’m so tired and so sorry that I’ve sat here every morning
for so long and just ended up crying.”

He very quietly and simply responded,
“This is where you find your strength.”

Then I felt His smile!

“He will keep you strong until the end…” 1 Cor 1:8

His Lap

Recently during my morning time with Jesus I was wiping away another round of tears & apologizing to Jesus for all the crying I’d done in recent days.

 
“Lord, I’m so sorry. All I’ve done lately is just sit in your lap and bawl. How pathetic.”

 
“Netta, My lap is your safe place, it’s where you’re supposed to cry. ”

 

 

“The name of the Lord is a strong fortress. The godly run to Him & are safe.”

Proverbs 18:10
