When the Light is Dim
I know that I have...
Whether it is in my daily walk with the Lord, My ambition as a mom, my responsibilities as a wife, or even a friend...
That light just doesn't seem to ignite...sometimes.
It's ok. Don't you think that God knows we are fallible, and not able to do this on our own?
I know He is always waiting for me to feel like I am in the "dark," and search quite deep for that spark that is going to re-ignite my Light.
Sometimes it takes longer than others.
I hear people say - " I just can't do "this," any more.
I have even heard myself mutter.. "I need a break."
Stepping back is good. Stepping back long enough to re-gain perspective is healthy.
But, what is it we step back from is the most important.
Taking a brief repose in the Shadows of His Wings is where we belong..
Not sulking our hiding in our frustration, exhaustion, or confusion.
As a mom, I get weary. I even let my family down.
As a wife, I get frustrated with effort, even when I know it is worth it.
As a friend, I can feel the Light is Dim with hope sometimes.
God Knows. He always knows.
One of the promises I cling to when the light seems dim - is that My God is the same yesterday, today, and forever! He is always the same.
