Today was a difficult day.  Too much to do, too little time.  Hard to remember sometimes that this is only a part of the journey, not the whole thing.  This day, this season, will not last forever. I have been through difficult seasons before and come out stronger, and hopefully wiser.  Some day this, too, will pass.  But for now, at this moment, all of the visions, and positive affirmations in the world are not going to change the fact that some days are really just hard to get through.  And today was one of those days.  Some prayer warrior I am.  What does help, however, is knowing that I have a hiding place in God that is safe, and quiet, and comforting.  “Under the shadow of His wings…”

I am in awe of my clients.  They are amazing people, who have been through so much, but they keep coming, and keep trying. Some of them know God, and some of them don’t.  But to sit and listen to their stories, and their hurts and struggles, and to know that God has placed me there for such a time as this, with all of my own faults and shortcomings, is both humbling and strengthening.  They are a part of my healing, whether they know it or not.  Most don’t.  But I do know it, and I owe them so much.  Even the ones who don’t know God are used by Him, and are there exactly when I need a reminder that I am exactly where I am supposed to be.  For today, at least.  And if they can get up and keep going, so can I.  But first, I’m going to rest.  Tomorrow, it’s back to the battlefield.
