Even When it Hurts….

Though the fig tree should not blossom and there be no fruit on the vines, though the yield of the olive should fail and the fields produce no food, though the flock should be cut off from the fold and there be no cattle in the stalls, yet I will exult in the LORD, I will rejoice in the God of my salvation.  The Lord GOD is my strength, and He has made my feet like hinds’ feet, and makes me walk on my high places. – Habakkuk 3:17-19

Though life is hard, though I weep with heartbreak several times a day, though Norah left us what we think is much too soon, though my heart hurts all the time,  though life doesn’t look like the way we expected it too,  though the future is difficult to face, I will praise the One who gives strength to my weary soul, who give grace for my today and peace incomprehensible for my heart.  I will exult the One who holds my dear daughter.  I will seek to draw close to the One who my daughter is the closest to.   I will rejoice my God who holds me through my trial!

And I will turn this song up loud and on repeat…all day long!

One thought on “Even When it Hurts….

  1. Megan,
    May I say how much I admire your patient perseverance through this searing loss. I doubt I had your spiritual and emotional maturity when i was your age. Your comments are a true example to me of trusting Him in the hardest of times. He is good, and He cares for you. that never changes no matter what we have to endure. You are sitting at His feet, exactly where you need to be. His Word is a powerful help in times of trouble.
    I shared your verse from Habakkuk and the music video with a friend who has suffered a different kind of loss but hurting just the same. I hope that it will serve as an inspiration as she finds her way.
    I hurt with you, Megan, suffering is so very difficult to endure. you are in my thoughts and prayers every day. Most importantly, He is right there with you. I wish I could hug you, sweety.
    Loads of love,
    Dianne
