“The Lord will keep your going out and your coming in from this time forth and forevermore.” Psalm 121:8
As I am moving further up and and further* in on this journey, sometimes I don’t feel like I can take the next step. Maybe it is because I foolishly insist on carrying the weight of my world in my arms. You never intended this for me.
- trying to hold it all together
- Always watching
- Never sleeping
- My keeper
Keeping my life—and those I love—is no small thing. But it isn’t too hard for you. You created everything I can see and yet you never take your eyes off of me. From breath to breath, your steadiness brings a holy confidence back to my aching soul.
threadbare prayer: LORD, you keep my life from breath to breath.
