When your sisters heart hurts and she begins to cry, you crawl up beside her, embrace her, pray over her and love on her until her soul becomes still.

My heart could have exploded with tears last night as Jordyn crawled up on my lap, looked straight into my eyes with tears filling hers, as these words trembled out of her mouth, “Mom I am struggling.” She then nestled her head on my lap and began to weep. Within seconds Avery crawled up next to her and well, this picture tells the rest of true story.

I am BLESSED that my children understand what it means to come alongside those who are hurting, to love without boarders and to truly put someone else’s feelings before their own. However, what shook my soul last night was as Avery embraced Jordyn in a moment of despair, God reminded me that when we are broken, shattered or dismantled by the circumstances of our lives and we curl up in a ball of despair, HE comes alongside of us, meets us in our pain and embraces us.

This picture of my girls was the exact picture God wanted my eyes to witness so I would NEVER forget that He is always with me and my precious angels. In fact, I am convinced this sweet picture I captured was actually a portrait sent from my Heavenly Father to remind me of His healing presence and that He will never leave us nor forsake us. God is good.

Where are you today? Are you in a dark place where the weight of the world seems to heavy to bear and all you want to do is crawl up in someone’s lap so they can HOLD you as you cry? Do you feel alone and as though you don’t even have that person? Let me assure you precious one that you do. His name is God and He is waiting for to run into His arms. He weeps with us. He turns our mourning into dancing. He makes beauty from our ashes. He breathes life into our souls and He promises He will cover us with His feathers as under His wings we will find refuge.

He is the almighty, all powerful great I AM who redeems the broken-hearted and calls us by name. Maybe you needed this picture today as well to remind yourself you are not alone. That He sees you, that He is right beside you, and He is showering you with His unfailing love.

Find your quiet place today where you fall to your knees as you cry out to Him. Allow Him to come alongside of you, embrace you and LOVE on you as He resurrects the hurt you have been carrying. Allow Him to breathe life back into you and allow Him to transform your posture from one of brokenness to wholeness in Him. Trust Him and the process. He has you precious one and He promises He will never leave you nor forsake you. “Come to me all who are weary and heavy burdened and I will give you rest” Matthew 11:28

He will shower you with His shalom peace, comfort, strength and rest. Lean into Him today and allow Him to break the shackles that have held you captive. You will find redemptive freedom in Him. Praying you through this day ❤️
