No light in the darkness you see?
There’s light for a look at the Savior,
And life more abundant and free!
Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
Look full in His wonderful face,
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim,
In the light of His glory and grace.
I've been a bit weary lately. Sometimes life just seems...well, hard. I'm ok with hard but sometimes hard begins to wear on me. Spring is coming in a hurry and I'm just not ready.
The coop I purchased for my chickens is adorable and perfect... for two hens. I was hoping to move home six.
The bees are coming soon and I haven't studied my books. I feel inadequate and ill-prepared. What if I fail? What if I kill my bees?
The garden? It is a mess and I want to "re-decorate".....but when? My seeds? Yeah, I don't even think half of them sprouted.
Oh, and the playroom that I started a YEAR ago? The walls are finally painted but I still need to paint the trim.
Let's not even talk about taxes...or laundry.
I'm tired and discouraged. But when I start to throw my hands up and shout, "I CAN'T DO IT ALONE!", I remember that I am far from alone. I have a Savior who rescues me from the pit of despair. I remember that everything I do should glorify HIM. I need to turn my eyes "upon Jesus" and all the "things of the earth", all these projects that I want done, will dim. Those things will eventually get done....or they won't and that's ok.
Press on, oh weary traveler.
Psalm 18:32 It is God who arms me with strength, and makes my way perfect.
