Hmmm. Not sure how to even start this blog entry...especially so it doesn't sound strange and cryptic, but here goes. This has been a very difficult and emotionally exhausting week. I wasn't sure some mornings if I could possibly get out of bed and face the day that lay ahead. Times where stress and worries were so high breathing seemed difficult. But, it was also during these times where God's voice and presence were closer and louder than I've ever felt before! One of these moments of overwhelming worry and grief He gave me the verse from Matthew 12: 28 "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light." Another evening I was lying in bed desperately trying to sleep with my mind reeling from and replaying the days events when God's voice was as loud and clear as it has ever been!!!! BE STILL AND KNOW, AMANDA, THAT I AM GOD. He was telling me, to take a chill pill and to trust in Him. :) I certainly needed to hear that!!!
Over the years, I can recall people saying to my parents and myself (with the best intentions) "God won't give you more than you can handle." And I'm definitely not looking for a theological debate here, but I have to disagree. I know I can't begin to handle this current "situation", but GOD can!!!!!
