I won't lie. Life is excruciatingly hard right now. We are in the middle of extremely difficult. Life-changing. Painful. Hurtful. Hurt-full.
When someone says, "But, God," they mean in the midst of your pain God is in control. In the middle of the battle God has already won. When the fire is fanned and rises up to engulf you, God reaches in and covers you with His life everlasting. When I lose all faith in my private world around me my hope remains in God.
So, I'm there.
But, God is too.
Without a doubt I didn't choose, or want this lesson, this test of faith, of trusting God, but sometimes it just isn't our choice.
So, I'm here.
But, God is too. I trust Him. Who He says He is; who I am in Him; what He says He will do.
I needed a breather so I scrapped.
There in the middle of my battle I ate cheesecake.
The best cheesecake I have ever eaten! No lie. Beyond decadent.
And, we found a new Italian restaurant to love.
But, especially a new place to go for - just dessert.
