There has been a lot going on in my life lately. Some of it is related to me, my own journey, and some of it is related to one of my family members. None of this is easy, but then we were never promised an easy life.
At times, the situation with my family member doesn't seem real. Maybe because it's just early on in the situation and the progression hasn't begun. I don't want to say too much about this right now, but things will definitely get more difficult as time goes by, and I hope and pray I have the strength to get through all of it. On my own, I don't have that strength; but the Lord does and He is the only one who can give me what I will need to get through everything.
I am doing my best to lean on Jesus, to give Him my burdens (like the Bible tells us to do), but I don't always do that. I am doing it more and more each day (and more than I have in the past), but I'm not to the point where I automatically give my burdens to Him - or leave them with Him. I still find myself taking them back and trying to fix things, or take care of things myself. And that doesn't work, because I'm not the one in control.
God, however, is in control and whatever may happen (and whenever it will be), He's got me covered. He'll get me through all of this and never leave my side. For that I am truly thankful.
