When Life is Hard…I Still Thank Him

Dear Lord,

Only you know how rough yesterday morning was for me.

In my distress I called upon the LORD, and cried unto my God: he heard my voice out of his temple, and my cry came before him, even into his ears. Psalm 18:6

Thank you for guiding my sweet husband to be a shield of compassion around me as I cried and poured out my fears to him. Thank you for giving him the right words to comfort and encourage me.

Thank you for my son who noticed I was not myself. Thank you for leading him to ask if I was still tired when he saw that my eyes were red and puffy from crying.

Thank you for his tiny fingers that tried to help me get my hair fixed before we had to leave. And thank you Lord for his tiny hand that rubbed my back as I worked on styling my hair.

I noticed his tenderness toward me and I want you to know God that I don’t take it for granted.

Thank you also for my sweet daughter who at the last minute before we had to leave, poured and sweetened my coffee. I tasted the love if her heart toward me in every sip.

Thank you Lord for allowing me to notice all of these things. There was a time when I’d let the stress of my problems cause me to hide within myself and then I’d get frustrated with my family, but today Lord I saw and was able to appreciate how you used each member of my family to love on me.

Thank you so much for them and for your lesson. Thank you for using my trials to make me better for You God.

    Thank you for sharing that. Sometimes as Moms we feel we have to be super woman and show no fear or weakness. I am thankful for the things God is showing me through others, and I am thankful that God has allowed me to break down walls and be vulnerable around my family. I am also thankful that I have two children who are willing to pitch in when they realize that I am falling apart.

    Whatever you are dealing with, I pray that God continues to show Himself to you through your family and others. I also pray that God will give you comfort. ~ Mary
