So as I was saying, yesterday was a tough day. But I thought things were turning around ~ mostly because I watched a funny youtube video (yes, I can be that simple). As it turned out ~ things did get worse. A close family member went "missing" for about 7 hours yesterday. In the end (which was around midnight) she turned up unharmed and bewildered at our concern. Apparently it was all a misunderstanding. I wonder how the sheriff's offices in three counties felt about that since we had them all on alert for her?!
I spent countless hours in prayer yesterday. That's never a bad thing. But in my desperation for peace, for answers, for guidance - I found myself at the feet of Jesus (a place I should find myself more often).
I didn't get much sleep last night. My eyes are glazed today ~ my head is foggy ~ my body is weak ~ but my heart is clear. This is I know ~ God is sovereign ALL the time. He is in control and we have to trust Him. Sometimes those lessons are hard but they are worth the bumps and bruises.
