Ever have one of those days? Or weeks? Or months? It feels like it has been one thing after another. After another. After another. Whoever said bad things happen in threes…umm, yeah. I’m way past three.
I’m tired. Physically, mentally, emotionally. I need a good, solid recharge. Where do I go? To one of my favorite places.
In Crossing Values, Amber arrives in Crossing tired. She doesn’t fully realize it because she’s been living in self-protection mode for so long. But the longer she stays, the more she gets to know about the Yager the family, the more she discovers the truth that I cling to when I am tired.
David says it well in Psalm 62: 5-8:
Let all that I am wait quietly before God,
for my hope is in him.
He alone is my rock and my salvation,
my fortress where I will not be shaken.
My victory and honor come from God alone.
He is my refuge, a rock where no enemy can reach me.
O my people, trust in him at all times.
Pour out your heart to him,
for God is our refuge.
So tonight I rest. And tomorrow I will have the strength and grace I need for whatever tomorrow brings. I love that.
