Happy Monday friends,
It’s been a busy day here. As we work to get the foundation’s first event off the ground, the details seem to be filling every spare moment we have. Tim and I of course have our “real” jobs as well which means every moment of every day is filled to the brim. Frankly, I am exhausted, but I know there is relief on the horizon.
We have an amazing team helping us, for which we are so very thankful. Really, every bit of this event is their ideas, Tim and I are just excited we get to be a part! We are also looking forward to sharing everything with all of you. I know I keep saying that, but we are getting really close.
But no matter how excited we get over this upcoming event, we cannot forget what our purpose is. To point other to Christ. To share our amazing story of how the Lord has carried us through the most tragic of circumstances. To share hope, even from the depths of deepest despair. We have endured the storm and continue to hold fast, even though we are still battered from every side.
Tonight I am tired. My heart is so very weary. The tasks ahead seem so enormous, yet I know my God is bigger. So even in my weakness, I have no doubts that my God has everything under control. HE has the plan. HE makes the way. And since I trust him, I say, “Yes, Lord” and follow where He leads.
This verse from a devotion today reminds me that my focus belongs on heavenly things. While everything going on around me has the potential to be an amazing blessing, they don’t matter as much as the One who grants the blessing. So I will set my eyes on those things that I cannot see, and I will trust the Father to lead me where He would have me go.
2 Corinthians 4:18
18 So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever.
Please lift our family up in prayer as we continue to heal. Our hearts are still so tender. We are trying to move forward, but some days are harder than others. Watching our children struggle is one of the most difficult things I face each day. Praying for the right words to offer comfort while pointing them back to the ultimate comforter.
Thank you for standing with us.
