#18 of 365

It's getting pretty hard to find a blessing, or hope in even a small thing every day...
Just being honest, being transparent, learning to be me.
I'll spill it, it was a very tough day, VERY TOUGH DAY for me today!
But my husband, my best friend, my supporter, my biggest fan, the love of my life & the one who gives the best hugs, ever! Emailed this to me today...I've decided to include the few emails we sent back and forth.
This is me, letting you in. God is doing a mighty work in me to allow this, and for that I am thankful!

Email from Cam to Jess:


Here is the portion of Isaiah 40 that I wanted you to focus on. This is from the Message Bible. I LOVE YOU MORE THAN EVER!!!!!!

27-31Why would you ever complain, O Jacob,
or, whine,
Israel, saying,
"God has lost track of me.
He doesn't care what happens to me"?
Don't you know anything? Haven't you been listening?
God doesn't come and go. God lasts.
He's Creator of all you can see or imagine.
He doesn't get tired out, doesn't pause to catch his breath.
And he knows everything, inside and out.
He energizes those who get tired,
gives fresh strength to dropouts.
For even young people tire and drop out,
young folk in their prime stumble and fall.
But those who wait upon God get fresh strength.
They spread their wings and soar like eagles,
They run and don't get tired,
they walk and don't lag behind.

Email from Jess to Cam:

That, is MY hope! In Jesus, my Creator. He doesn't want me to hurt but He does want me to learn, know & always run to Him when I'm hurting.

Email from Cam to Jess:
That’s right Babe, but just remember, you never have to run to Him. He knows just where to find you, and a lot of the time, it’s when you’re at your lowest point, and you need Him to reach down His mighty hand and pick you up. The most important thing is to ALLOW Him to pick you up. He knows exactly what you need, all the time!
