Not Forgotten

It's so easy to slip off the scene when so much is going on in life...your life and the lives of everyone around you.  Sometimes you feel like your hovering just above the breaking point.  That thread is unraveling, the nerve is giving in, that last brown blade of grass in your yard has you wishing for the green you see in the yard across the fence.  Of course we know the grass is not always greener on the other side, because everything that looks good is not always good.  I've found it's okay to have these moments, the feelings and emotions are real, but we must choose not to hang out in that space, because defeat and depression dwell there. 

Every day we are moving closer to beating this.  There are low points.  There are times you acknowledge your tired, but you keep hanging on and pressing forward.  I recently saw a marquee that stated 'God gives his greatest battles to his strongest soldiers'.  'I' am weak and 'He' is strong.  Every bit of the strength I/We have is because of the Lord.  He knows exactly what we can take, bear and handle.

Times goes by so quickly, it's hard to imagine we've been on this path of our lives for over 19 months. We are still very much fighting and walking out the days and our reality until we reach total and complete wellness.  We have to keep our eye on the prize, because we know on the other side of this is joy and victory.  Israel Houghton and New Breed have a beautiful medley 'Not Forgotten/He Knows My Name' that is so fitting.  As I'm typing this, ironically I'm reminded that 'He Knows My Name' is a song Quentin lead in worship many times. The song says 'God knows my name, he knows my every thought, he sees each tear that falls and hears me when I call'.  The Lord will never leave or forsake us.  He has equipped us to walk this out despite it all.  Pray for and with us.  It's not easy, but it's worth it.
Keep my sweet girl in your prayers too
 Psalms 31:24 Be strong and take heart, all you who hope in the LORD.
