On the Day It's Hard to Get Out of Bed

My head pounds, swimming in the remains of drowning my sorrow the night before. I hear the garage door as my husband leaves for work. I hear the kids laughing downstairs. The day is grey and my bed is a sanctuary of warmth and protection that I don't have the strength to leave yet.

The Lost Sheep

So Jesus told them this story: 4“If a man has a hundred sheep and one of them gets lost, what will he do? Won’t he leave the ninety-nine others in the wilderness and go to search for the one that is lost until he finds it? 5 And when he has found it, he will joyfully carry it home on his shoulders. 6 When he arrives, he will call together his friends and neighbors, saying, ‘Rejoice with me because I have found my lost sheep.’ 7 In the same way, there is more joy in heaven over one lost sinner who repents and returns to God than over ninety-nine others who are righteous and haven’t strayed away! - Luke 15

Have you ever felt like this sheep, in desperate need of rescue? If we intuitively answer the innocent cry for help from a simple creature such as this, how much more will our Heavenly Father answer our cries for rescue? 

He sees us.

He hears us.

He loves us.

He will rescue us.

Sleeping At Last - You Are Enough

What would happen if you let yourself believe you are enough today? You are enough, because God is enough.

When we woke up
The world was figured out
Beyond the beauty we’ve dreamt about
This brilliant light is brighter than we’ve known
Without our darkness to prove it so
Still, we can’t help but to examine it
To add our question marks to periods
At the foot of our bed, we found an envelope…

“You are enough”
These little words, somehow they’re changing us
“You are enough”
So we let our shadows fall away like dust

When we grew up
Our shadows grew up too
But they’re just old ghosts
That we grow attached to
The tragic flaw is that they hide the truth

That you’re enough
I promise you’re enough
I promise you’re enough, I promise you

“You are enough”
These little words, somehow they’re changing us
“You are enough”
So we let our shadows fall away like dust
“You are enough”
These little words, somehow they’re changing us
Let it go, let it go, “you are enough”
So we let our shadows fall away like dust
