“yeah, so the world may tilt off kilter tonight, Lord, with news of unspeakable things, and of things deep inside of us that we’d never speak of:
Kids fail & marriages flail & the work of our hands can feel futile, falling far behind.
But! ‘…we’re not giving up. How could we! Even though on the outside it often looks like things are falling apart on us, on the inside, where God is making new life, *not a day goes by without His unfolding grace.*’
It can feel like life’s got us in a prison — but on the inside, where God is making new life, we’re free.
It can feel like we’ve lost — but not a day goes by without His unfolding grace that. makes. us. win. this. race.
It can feel like the the night has won — but nothing can ultimately steal us from the One Who is Light.
The bottom line, and the finish line, is simply this:
The God who has carried you till now
can be trusted to carry you till you’re through…
right through to the very end — which, then, on the other side,
will be a perfect, forever beginning”
Hopefully, these borrowed words will speak to at least one person. Maybe someone out there will read them and find the courage and strength to keep going for one more day.
That to me will have been worth it.
