Warning: this is sort of a "poor me" post so if you want to keep your (mistaken) view that I am all joy and sunshine, you may not want to read this.
I feel like I am standing in an ocean, up to my waist in the water, being hit by wave after wave of bad news or circumstances. These waves aren't coming from just my life, but my close friends' lives too. There is time between each wave where I start to feel like everything is handle-able and then another wave crashes down. Because I am keeping my eyes fixed on Jesus, up above, I have kept my head out of the water. I am able to breathe. And go on. But I am tired of this constant battering.
I know the Truth. I know the Way. and I see the Light. It just seems a little bleary since I keep having to wipe ocean water out of my eyes.
So I lift my arms once again, praise Him and pray for the tide to go out.
or a surfboard.
