Winter Shadows

I want to write an inspirational blogpost that will make even me feel better, but the words aren't there.

Why do I like Susannah Conway's blog or Liz Lamoreux?
Honesty, transparency, vulnerability.
It's not as easy as it sounds.

Honestly, this has been a rough day. My body is slow in healing from the pancreatic attack in December and today I feel like I took a few steps back.
Shadows linger over my faith.

Waiting , always waiting and hoping and trying to rest upon the scriptures so dear to me.

My memory verse for this week is found in Matthew 11:29 NIV "Take my yoke upon you and learn of me for I am gentle and humble of heart, and you will find rest for your souls."

How do I take His yoke? Trust, surrender, letting go or hanging on? I don't know.
The verse before this says to Come.
Perhaps as my head lies down on the pillow tonight, I will simply come, lay everything before him that makes me heavy, shadowed , knowing that there will be new mercies awaiting my awakening in the morning.

These days come to all of us and not feeling well just intensifies them.....maybe you just need to rest in The Lord and let Him lead your thoughts and comfort you....I like to think I climb up in his lap and He just soothes me and sets me back on the path He has created for me...hugs to you..
