Beth Vogt is a wonderfully multi-talented author and her newest three-part series on her blog is called In My Words: Turning Back from Turning My Back on God. I urge you to click on the series title and spend a little time getting to know Beth, as well as being encouraged and refreshed in your spirit. She is honest and transparent!
After I finished the series, I was inspired by Beth's words to make this graphic. For the last 14 months this is where I have been; standing at the feet of Jesus, asking Him for mercy as I travel this bumpy road of grief. My heart is healing but it doesn't mean there are no dark moments. At times I have felt like a blanket has been thrown over my head and all light is extinguished. But then my eyes focus and I can see a glimmer. I know it is Him showing me how to navigate these waters to keep me from sinking in to a dark oblivion.
God is good to give me just what I need, right when I need it and I needed to hear what Beth had to share this week. My heart and mind have been extra heavy recently but now they are lifted toward the Son. I'm basking in his presence, his grace, his mercy.
Have a blessed day in the Lord!
