keep breathing

what do you do when it feels like your whole world has fallen apart? what do you do when you feel like you've watched your dreams fall and shatter into a million pieces? how do you even begin to start piecing your life back together? mornings are supposed to bring hope and the chance to start fresh but all i feel when i wake up is dread at another day of dealing with a roller coaster of emotions.

the only comfort i have is knowing that God is still good. He is still holy. He has not abandoned me. i cling to that today in the midst of this crazy raging storm. i imagine it's what the disciples felt as their boat rocked back and forth, quickly taking on water, and they screamed, "Lord, save us!" here i am on this ship that feels like it's destined to capsize and i keep crying out like them, "Lord, save me!" and he responds just as he did to them, "You of little faith, why are you so afraid?" why am I so afraid? i know i'm not alone in the boat, but i forget that because of the strength of the storm.

my sister played this song for me the other day and the first time i heard it i just cried. and every time i play it i cry because this is exactly how i feel. i don't know what else to do but keep breathing. just keep breathing.




thanks for all the sweet comments and the love. it means more than you know.

Sweet, sweet girl. Not sure what is going on, but my heart hurts knowing you're in pain. I'm praying for you, and I'm also inspired by how bright you are letting your faith shine in such a hard time for you personally.

oh hun, I'm so sorry you're hurting right now. I've been there, and I honestly did not know why God was allowing this to happen, only to find out later that His plans for me were only greater and better than I have ever dreamed of. I'm so inspired by your strength and faith and I'm so glad that you're trusting your life in His hands. I'll keep you in my prayers.
