      Thank you, so much. <3

  1. Natasha, this is beautiful. This is exactly what I have learned (what he has taught me) during my seasons of desperation. We cling, feebly… but HE clings to us, and that makes all the difference.

    even in the darkness and the sadness and the bloody cow. One more thing- oh how I understand that feeling. Sometimes I just hate this place.

    Prayers for you Natasha.

  2. one of the best books i have EVER read The God of All Comfort by Dee Brestin. Her journey of learning to cling to promises, “find” God in the waves as they rolled at her, as her husband lost his battle with cancer. She is one of the most transparent Hope-filled, God-women i have ever had the pleasure of reading. i wept through the entire book. it is dog-eared, marked up, penciled, and (once) fell into the bathtub….and i don’t want a new one 🙂 Jesus SPILLS out of all her pain, that is part of all of our lives this side of Heaven. She uses the richness of old Hymns to explain how to “Soul talk” to your own hurts….and the laments of the Psalms. Praise Jesus for the Psalms! Our deepest groanings are a sweet incense to HIm. He wants ALL of us…not the cleaned –up parts. Who knew God LOVED our emotions? As women, the world tells us they are bad. They are “just” emotions….and He “gets it”….Praise Him. This is a beautiful post, Natasha!

      I will have to search for that book! It sounds marvelous.

  3. I have been in that moment, where you feel the waves are about to wash you away, and all you can do is cling to Him.
    I will be praying for you Natasha.

  4. Excellent depiction of life in the raw in your writing today, Natasha. Desperately hanging on is all we can do somedays. But it is enough!

      It is enough. Amen & Amen.

  5. Oh my…yesterday must have been a day! I didn’t experience the same things you did, but I did have that feeling of walls pressing in and ceiling pressing down. So much stuff to do and so little time to do it! Thank you for writing my feelings. 🙂

      I almost laughed as I wrote because while this was one day- I’ve had so many that elicit the same feelings of being cornered. So wonderful that God included a verse in His Word that says, “struck down but not destroyed”!

    Good Morning Natasha, I got goosebumps reading this post. Thanks for pouring out the gut-wrenching truth that through confusion and pain God still remains our firm foundation! Along with you, I’m determined to receive fully from Him today. His grace is sufficient and mercies are new EVERY MORNING! Thanks girl! ~ Blessings, Amy

      Love the verses that talk about new mornings. It is the ultimate promise, after all? And a morning with come when things will be made new and remain new for all eternity. Oh, I can’t wait!
