Heavy things

Today just felt heavy.

  • Remembering 9/11
  • Watching the President’s address about Syria
  • Suicide Prevention Week
  • Researching heavy topics for my job
  • Hugging beloved friends as they said goodbye to a parent

I penned these words on behalf of someone else, but they are as much for me as they:

“No matter the state of unrest, Immanuel—God is with us.”

The lyrics to Steven Curtis Chapman’s “Our God Is With Us” kept running through my head today.

At one point this afternoon, I was overwhelmed by the words I was reading and writing, and just needed to stop. Breathe. Focus on God.

On days like today I am so thankful for technology, which allowed me to Google and watch/listen to this uplifting reminder that GOD IS WITH US. That is cause to turn my heavy heart to rejoicing.
