Word-Filled Wednesday

As I was sitting at home last night I began to think about all the wonderful things that God has blessed me with in the past several months. This verse from Psalms popped into my head and I couldn't shake the feeling of absolute gratitude and unworthiness that I began to feel. I began searching around for the perfect picture since I knew that I didn't have one that would capture what I was looking for. I found it here in this picture. I feel that it not only captures the devastation that we sometimes go though in this life, but also the hope and beauty that the Lord gives us when we stay strong in our faith knowing that He will pull us out and beyond our circumstances and bless us more than we ever could have imagined.

I already feel so far removed from the pain and loss that I was feeling not nearly a year ago. I know that I wouldn't be where I am without Him. He has carried me when I was too weak to walk, comforted me when I felt I would never know hope again and He's given me amazing angels to light my way. My life was turned upside down, but in the midst of it He turned it into the greatest blessing ever! I am reminded of Job, although my loss could never measure up to that of his. How sad that sometimes it takes things of this measure to bring us back to Him, but how wonderful it is that he stretches His loving arms wide for us to run to!!!


  1. God really is wonderful right? He do all things for us. Happy WFW!
