Sometimes the weight of grief fills our hearts and it is hard to take another step. Sometimes the future is uncertain and our world feels unsteady. With our vision blurry, our shoulders aching with the burdens of it all, sometimes we just don’t know what to do.
I think that when everything else is uncertain, we must hold onto what we do know. And I know that the voice of Jesus is calling, even — especially — in these times and He is saying ‘Come to Me. All you who are weary and heavy-laden, come to Me.” (Matt. 11:28). I know that when everything else shifts beneath our feet, our Father remains steady and sure. He upholds us with His own right hand. When we grow weary and fall, He gives us strength to walk again. He is with us in the good times and in the worst times, and He is ever-present in every time of need…we “keep our eyes always on the Lord. With Him at our right hand, we will not be shaken.” (Psalm 16:8)
We can trust Him. We can center our lives on Him and find peace, despite everything else that changes. He leads us through this life and He will guide us into the eternal light of His presence…never forsaking us, not even for a moment.
If you don’t know what to do today, hold onto what you do know. Run to Him and cling to Him. His ways – even when we can’t understand – are always perfect, always good. If you need somewhere safe to find refuge, He is your strong tower — His arms are open and His love is unshakeable.
