So sometimes you have the most emotionally and spiritually exhausting week in your entire life. Sometimes God pulls at you in ways you want to fight so badly, but you have to lean into Him and choose to trust His plan above your own. Sometimes things don’t make sense, tears are shed more than they ever should be, and sometimes, your body is so weak you can’t seem to ever catch up on sleep.
But sometimes within those exhausting days, The Lord throws in His grace in the most amazing ways. Sometimes He offers so much comfort and peace from everyone around you that you are so overwhelmed with His presence. Sometimes He surrounds you with so much love that there is no way you can deny His perfect protection and incredible faithfulness.
Life isn’t always perfect. Actually, it never is, but the thing is, God gives us strength and hope every morning, and man am I clinging to that hope right now.
It’s the times when friends stop and just pray over you. It’s the times when friends cry with you, hug you tight, and stay by your side. It’s these times that are the smallest things that become the biggest of blessings.

So look around you and be thankful for all that The Lord has given you today– because today is a blessing, and tomorrow is not worth the worry. He is a good, good Father, a Father who cares for your heart and knows your desires better than you ever will. He is a Father who loves you, a King who reigns, and a Savior who always has good plans for His children.
Trust in Him today. Cling to Him, and I promise that your faith, your obedience, your trust in Him will be blessed.

Music is one way that The Lord really speaks truth into my heart, and my dear dear friend sent me this song before she even knew that I would need it: it is called Exhale, by Plum. I wanted to share the lyrics because they have spoke so.much.truth into my life this past week, and my prayer is that they can bless you in some way as well!

It’s okay to not be okay
This is a safe place
This is a safe place
Don’t be afraid
Don’t be ashamed
There’s still hope here
There’s still hope here

No matter what you’ve done or who you are
Everyone is welcome His arms

Just let go let His love wrap around you
And hold you close
Get lost in the surrender
Breathe it in until your heart breaks
Then exhale
Exhale

Spirit come tear down the walls
That only You can
That only You can
Reconcile this heart to Yours
Right now God
Right now

Just let go let His love wrap around you
And hold you close
Get lost in the surrender
Breathe it in until your heart breaks
Then exhale

Oh God We breathe in your grace
We breathe in your grace
And exhale
Oh God we do not exist for us
But to share Your grace and love
And exhale

Just let go let His love wrap around you
And hold you close
Get lost in the surrender
Breathe it in until your heart breaks
Then exhale
