Dear Grieving Mom,
The mornings are the hardest for me. I wake up and my brain is instantly thinking of all the little things I need to accomplish. Some mornings I embrace the to-do list. Some mornings it paralyzes me.
Yesterday I was able to dive deep. I jumped out of bed and got my kid breakfast and did my devotional and read the Bible and some of my book while he watched Cars for the millionth time. I prayed and embraced the day.
Today I froze. The mere thought of getting out of bed to take a shower kept me still. The prayers of my husband and my kid's door opening are what got me out of bed. The to-do list was too much.
But God met me. He met me yesterday. He's meeting me today. He's with me when I'm calm and when I'm overwhelmed. Daily he gives me the strength I need. His grace truly is big enough to help us through our grief.
“You’ll find this as you grieve: some days you’ll have the strength to dive deep - and Jesus will meet you there. other days you’ll barely manage a nudge in his direction - and he’ll meet you there, too. His grace is big enough for both.” -Adriel Booker
