God Help Me // Glimpses Link Up

I want to thank you all for your kind comments and prayers last week (which I know is continuing even now).  I am so very grateful for my little community here.  So many have messaged me to check in and I truly appreciate that.  I apologize the link up was not ready Monday morning, but sometimes you just gotta roll with it and I went to bed and forgot today was Monday.

I don’t have much to say right now. I’m taking one day at a time and trying to stay strong, positive and focused so that my mind is where it needs to be for the upcoming Christmas season.  In many ways I’m so numb and feel as if I’m going through the motions.  Call it adrenaline, but I would rather think it’s God covering me with a blanket of grace so that I can continue to move forward, albeit slowly.

I wanted to share a song that has been ministering to my heart these recent weeks.  It’s called God Help Me by Plumb.  I am sharing the video below, but you can find the lyrics here.  Here is just a sampling:

There is a wrestling in my heart and my mind
A disturbance and a tension I cannot seem to drive
And if I’m honest, there’s quite a bit of fear
To sit here in this silence and really hear You
What will you ask of me?
Will I listen to your voice when you speak?

Help me to move
Help me to see
Help me to do whatever you would ask of me
Help me to go
(Or) God help me to stay
I’m feeling so alone here
And I know that You’re faithful But I can barely breathe
God help me

I don’t know the future
It’s one day at a time
But I know I’ll be okay with Your Hand holding mine
So take all my resistance
Oh God I need Your grace
One step and then the other Show me the way
Show me the way

How are you doing? I apologize I haven’t gotten around to answering your comments recently. I’ve read every one and am truly blessed.  I hope to be visiting your blogs soon. Thank you for sticking with me through this season.

    One day, sometimes one hour, one minute is all we can do, Barbie. It is during these times that I am comforted by the old Footprints poem. We are never alone. During the most difficult times, it is then that He carries us. May you be comforted by the blanket of His embrace, Beloved.

    “God covering me with a blanket of grace.” I love that thought, Barbie. When I sit in my recliner, I always snuggle into a blanket. So warm and cozy. You have given me pause to reflect on how much more cozy God’s blanket of grace is. Thank you. I pray God will quicken and refresh your heart with His love. Thank you for always sharing so honestly. I love the song, too. It really resonates in my heart. May He help us to move or to stay, to show us the way. Love and hugs to you!

    Barbie, I am out of the loop here and don’t know what you are going through but I know God does and I am praying for you. I loved your graphic and have pinned it. I pray you feel God’s touch surrounding you and you feel the presence of him near to you.. Love that song as it has ministered to me many times.
