Longing

I am longing for home tonight. I want to sit at His feet knowing I am sheltered by His awesome love. With Him is peace, rest for my soul and healing for my body. My heart longs for Him.

"Let heaven fill your thoughts, don't spend your time worrying about things down here. You should have as little desire for this world as a dead person does. Your real life is in heaven with Christ and God." Colossians 3:2-3

But, He wants to use me, a weak vessel, that His glory might shine. I am blessed in the midst of trials and tribulations. When I look at my trial I cry, but when I look upon Him, my heart bursts with joy. People have told me that I am a strong woman in light of what all I have been through. All they are seeing is Him, His power. For when I am weak, then He is strong.

"So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand." Isaiah 41:10

Dear Becky,
You are God's special, sweet daughter.
I know how tough it is to feel weak and weary. Stay encouraged. When we are weak, He is strong :)
Love Candy
