Held

There were a couple of days this week when I was so low emotionally.  The thought of going to school and teaching for seven hours just seemed impossible.

When you’re empty, what’s to offer?  How can I give when I have nothing left?

That’s one of the things God is teaching me.  When there’s nothing left of me…He still has plenty of grace.  Plenty of help. Plenty.  Exceeding, abundant.  More than we could ask or think.

I had to ask.  “God, I can’t go through today.  Will you please carry me?”

And He did.  Again.

I used to be so naive.  I thought that I would be protected from pain.  Why did I think that?  Such arrogance.  I see God so much more clearly, as He goes through my pain with me.  And I’m held.
