I find You when I fall apart.
The one silver lining, the amazing sparkly silver lining, when going through any sort of difficulty is the NEED to lean on my Maker.
You don’t have a soul. You are a soul. You have a body. C.S. Lewis
My soul needs saving daily. I need saving daily. When I am sailing through life with no trouble, I will admit, I can get caught up in earthly things. I can lose focus -- get too busy to open up my Bible. My prayers are mechanical. But when there is a hiccup in my plans, the communion I have with my Lord is nothing less than soul-saving.
When life is heavy and
hard to take, go off by
yourself. Enter the silence.
Bow in prayer. Wait for
Hope to appear.
Hope. It appears a lot in my artwork because I cannot live without it. And it is the Living Hope that keeps me going. If I didn't have the Hope that Someone else has a plan when my measly earthly plans fall through, I would be sunk.
Hope anchors the soul.
So I guess what I am saying through all of this is that when I fall apart, I am grateful that my soul has an anchor to hold onto.

I will be starting a new journey on this blog ... one where I delve deeper into my spiritual journey. There will be 4 posts in the week. You can see a preview above of the 4 posts for next week. We are starting November -- which with Thanksgiving always brings to mind being grateful. I want to focus on how I try to stay grateful when I find myself walking in the woods with only the Light of His Word guiding me.
