Regret, Revelation, and Hope

I am home. Two children are with me. But, I feel alone. I am isolated, desperate for peace.

I should be full of honor and praise this morning.

I am full of regret.

My heart's cry found comfort this morning in these words: "Draw near to God and he will draw near to you." (James 4:8)

Comfort, relief and revelation are poured on my soul.

God is with me but I am still responsible for my failures.
God is with me.

Even in the desert that I pull myself through, He is with me.
His companionship hugs my hardened heart.

I press on. I have no choice but to continue through my day.

I choose to cling to the promises that give me hope.

Oh my goodness, JA, I hope you hold on to that hope! You sound so down! Maybe a pumpkin latte is in your future...? : )

It's just little things. Little things often drag me down. This is how I started my morning and I decided to share.

Thank you for the prayers and sweet latte thoughts.

I pray that He is able to pull you through this time and that you are able to look back on it as a new woman who has become stronger and closer to Him because of this valley.

Oh Jane Anne...I have been so outta the loop with no computer...I am having some of the same feelings and I am so sad. I didn't go to church this morning and I am thinking that was a mistake. Thanks for the verse...I really needed it. Praying for Sarah and hoping this recovery goes much better. Hugs to you

Oh how frustrating! I hope you are feeling better this evening. I have been out of the loop somewhat, but I will be praying for Sarah. Hope she gets to feeling better soon!

You were missed today. You can be proud of your husband as he spoke with purpose, yet from his heart today. I hope the potluck didn't keep you home.

I keep re-reading your thoughts, and I can really relate to your feelings. I hope these feelings are just from a rough morning, not many rough days in a row...
