Psalm 94:18-19
When I said, "My foot is slipping,"
your love, O LORD, supported me.

When anxiety was great within me,
your consolation brought joy to my soul.

It hasn't been the easiest or most enjoyable season in my life. Its been one of going through the hard stuff to come out having learned something and not just saying, "oh, I understand.." but really understanding. It's one of tears and humility, confusion and trust. It's one of independence gone and dreams pursued. Today as I sat watching Julie & Julia after having too much sun under the above umbrella, I was thankful for the ways the little steps get us to bigger places. Thankful at the end of the day after tears are shed that tough times make for stronger relationships with others and ourselves and for the perseverance we gain to fight the good fight, keep on, and know that "when anxiety is great within me, your consolation brings joy to my soul."
