A reminder

It has not been my best week. I've been pretty emotional - and am just battling some demons right now.

But, I got a pretty wonderful mother-in-law who sent me an email earlier in the week with just two sentences:

God is faithful.
I love you.

And not that I didn't know that, but I needed to read it... again and again and again. And I have - every day.

And my own Mama. She's pretty wonderful too. A few months ago she left a note for me - about the same issue.

Psalm 13 (NIV)
1 How long, O LORD ? Will you forget me forever?
How long will you hide your face from me?

2 How long must I wrestle with my thoughts
and every day have sorrow in my heart?
How long will my enemy triumph over me?

3 Look on me and answer, O LORD my God.
Give light to my eyes, or I will sleep in death;

4 my enemy will say, "I have overcome him,"
and my foes will rejoice when I fall.

5 But I trust in your unfailing love;
my heart rejoices in your salvation.

6 I will sing to the LORD,
for he has been good to me.

I also enjoyed reading verses 5-6 in The Message translation:

5-6 I've thrown myself headlong into your arms—
I'm celebrating your rescue.
I'm singing at the top of my lungs,
I'm so full of answered prayers.

I don't know. Just thought that maybe I'm not the only one who needed to read that today.
