Sorry Ive been gone… life gets in the way… we let things cloud our vision, and we lose focus on what really matters….
So I’ve had a very VERY rough couple of days… but not as rough as some other people in my life. I have never been too terrible at handling death, but when it hits close to home, I struggle a little more. When my uncle passed away in 2003, it was the single hardest thing that I have ever had to deal with. Friday evening, a close “extended family” member of mine suffered a stroke… and left for home on Saturday evening. Knowing that I cant be in Texas to hold my “family” and to help ease their burden makes me feel helpless.. but I am trying to focus on who he was, and what he meant to so many people. He always called me “Holy”… and I will forever cherish every single memory I have of this special and unique man, then, on Saturday morning, my God-mother also suffered a stroke, she is facing a long road of recovery, but her faith is strong.
So many times in the past I have asked myself why things happen… Matthew 5:45 tells us that ” That ye be the children of your Father, which is in Heaven: For he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sendeth rain on the just and the unjust.” I will never ever understand why things happen, but I have to trust God. I have to believe that things happen for a reason and that God will never leave nor forsake me. When I start questioning, I have to remind myself of Gods promises. I have to remind myself that the Lord is my comforter, and in him, I will know peace and know his comfort.
As is my usual, I have some huge things going on in my life, but I have to focus on the lord, I have to give my burdens to him… because lately they are too much for me to carry… but as our sermon this evening held a scripture that God made sure I was there to hear… Matthew 11: 30 “My yoke easy, and my burden is light”.
So thats enough for tonight. I pray you have peace and I ask for you to remember me and my families in your prayers. Thanks Yall! I will be blogging again more from now on.
Peace and Love,
❤ Holly Lynn
