A Big Ugly Cry

I sat down this morning and just had me a big ugly cry! With big crocodile tears and snot! My heart has just been overwhelmed lately with both joy and grief. I have been so busy caught up in the every day of life that I haven't stopped to allow myself to really think about all the things on my heart and lift them up in prayer. 

While one dear friend grieves the loss of her baby today, another dear friend prepares to welcome her baby boy! Three sweet ladies in my life are battling cancer while another is recovering from a stroke. Some of my sweet friends are struggling so hard for a baby or a husband or a better job. One is fighting for her marriage and her home. I have been blessed with some really great women in my life that just mean so much to me and it breaks my heart when something is troubling them. It's tough to not worry and stay strong all the time.

A friend of mine posted yesterday about her fertility struggles and shared this verse...

"But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me." -2 Cor 12:9

I have to remind myself of this as I struggle to understand why so many people have to hurt sometimes. I know God has greater plans and everything that happens is so Christ can work through us in his timing.
