One of the most difficult weeks and life events experienced this week in probably seven years or more. Raw grief leaving me on my knees, gutted, speechless, numb and at times in complete disbelief.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:5-6 NIV
From anticipatory grief to the unavoidable finality of it all. With each punch to my gut of sadness, loss, and longing for more reminds me of all He has given us. Twenty-two months instead of no warning. Six months instead of none.
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11 NIV
The past, almost two-year journey has me pressing in and daring myself to wish, to dream, to believe in His promises for our lives in a limitless way like never before. The sense of urgency is a daily tangible presence. With an insatiable appetite to focus the lens and magnify my true identity in Christ I am seeing what is possible and seeing His plans unfold.
We do not know what tomorrow holds, but we do know Who holds it. He will continue to direct our paths independently and two-gether. I’m so blessed to do this life with you, Mark. I love you with all my heart.
Family and dear friends walking along side, surrounding and supporting like a true tribe, thank you with my whole heart.. I love you deeply and treasure your friendship, discipleship and love.
