The pains I don’t know how to ease. 

The heartbreaks I can’t fix.

The unfair situations I have no power over

The struggles I have no solution for. 

The worries I only have words to attempt to ease.

The tears I can only wipe and hug away. 

RELATED: I’ll Walk Beside You When Life is Hard, My Friend

The problems I can’t solve. 

The trauma I can’t take away.

The realities I can’t fathom, let alone make less harsh. 

God is aware of them. 

Where I am powerless, He is still powerful. 

When I can only hug, He can bring peace to hearts.

When all I can do is offer a temporary retreat from the harshness of the real world, He is hard at work in the trenches. 

Where I have no solutions, no answers, He has a master plan

When words fail me, He doesn’t need me to speak them aloud.

Most of all, He is aware. He is on it. He is working. 

In all the sickness, all the hurt, all the worldHe is there. And He will prevail. 

When the days are long and the worries are mighty, He is mightier.

RELATED: If God is Truly Good, He is Still Good When Life is Not

He’s holding all the sweet babies in His hand. He’s with them, too, in a greater way than I can ever be. That’s what I’ll be reminding myself tonight as I search for sleep.

God’s aware. He’s on it. He’s got them.

You Say I’m Enough—But What if I’m Not?

In: Faith

You say I’m enough—but what if I’m not? You say I’m enough. From every direction, this notion is being shouted at me. I hear it spoken over that podcast I listen to on the way to school drop-off. I see it on that trendy T-shirt at the local boutique. I read it from some of my favorite authors. You say I’m enough—but what if I’m not? What if today I’m not enough? Not enough to keep up with the dishes and the laundry. Not enough to clean up the endless messes made by little hands. Not enough to meal plan,...

His Grace is All I Need

In: Faith

I was 17 the first time I stared down at two pink lines. Old enough to know they were the result of my own choices, but too young to understand how powerful each and every choice I made from that moment on was going to be.   I was a kid, and I was scared. I didn’t know what to do, so I did nothing. Well, nothing I needed to. I don’t know what I thought ignoring things would do . . . I had to know I couldn’t wish a baby away. But nonetheless, I tried.  I tried until one...

God Actually Does Give Us More Than We Can Handle

God Actually Does Give Us More Than We Can Handle www.herviewfromhome.com

I used to be someone who said, “God doesn’t give you more than you can handle.” That was before I had faced any hardships in my life. I didn’t know who God truly is. When people are going through something hard and decide to share it, it makes people uncomfortable. It’s hard to watch others who are hurting, and it’s hard not knowing how to help when it’s someone you love. “God doesn’t give us more than we can handle” is a very well-meaning encouragement that I know is meant in love. I’ve said it before! But it’s not really...
