Seek the Sun

I love moments like this. To watch the sun peek through the tall trees and give light to the path on my morning walk.

Right now I have some tall trees in my life, my parents are moving to another state and recently I have had some nerve pain in my face and pressure behind my left eye. I went to the doctor this week and I have to get an MRI next week to rule out a reoccurrence. Once again I find myself walking a new path with an unknown destination. What I find I have to continuously do is talk myself into seeking God in this. He is the sun shining between the trees. His love, care and grace comfort me. He is able to shine light into the darkness, warm the cold places and help me see there is something beyond these obstacles. 

Yes, the unknown and uncertainty are there yet I refuse to give them my heart and mind...yet they try to take them frequently. Instead I need to....

Pause. Breathe. Pray.

And lean on the lessons I learned through my walk with cancer. They weren’t just true then, they hold true for any struggle, including my current ones- and yours.

I share this with you in case you too have tall trees that are blocking your view in life. I invite you to join me to...

Pause. Breathe. Pray.

May we seek the sun, aka God, who is shining a light through these trees and into our hearts. May we absorb His love and may it give us peace through this time. And even though our struggles may be different, may we know we never need to walk this path alone.

With love and hope,
