i’m not going to lie. 2012? a hard year. both for me personally and for so many people i care about.
sometimes i get overwhelmed by the seemingly unending SAD things and the scary things I read/see on the news that i just want to go back to bed, pull the covers over my head and hide from it all. but then i remember. God is good. he really is. my cousin and I have started an ongoing “things I am thankful for” list. we will text each other at random things that are blessing us and showing us that God’s love is real even when the world around us seems so so dark.

today. i am thankful for THIS song.

Am I at the point of no improvement?
What of the death, I still dwell in?
I try to excel but I feel no movement
Can I be free of this unreleasable sin?


Never underestimate my Jesus
You’re tellin’ me that there’s no hope
I’m tellin’ you, you’re wrong
Never underestimate my Jesus
When the world around you crumbles
He will be strong, He will be strong

I throw up my hands, oh the impossibilities
Frustrated and tired, where do I go from here?
Now I’m searching for the confidence, I’ve lost so willingly
Overcoming these obstacles is overcoming my fears

Never underestimate my Jesus
You’re tellin’ me that there’s no hope
I’m tellin’ you, you’re wrong
Never underestimate my Jesus
When the world around you crumbles
He will be strong, He will be strong

I think I can’t, I think I can’t
But I think you can, I think you can
I think I can’t, I think I can’t
But I think you can, I think you can
Gather my insufficiencies and place them in your hands
Place them in your hands, place them in your hands

and for the true light my children are. the other day, everything seemed to be crushing in on me and i had to sit down and have a good cry (yes. i am UBER emotional. sometimes crying just FEELS good). so i gathered up amelia and chase and the snuggled me while I cried. (chase saying “you crying mama? you crying?” then he wiped a tear with his finger, put it on his face and said “i’m crying too mama”) and you know what? not much can be better for my soul than huge hugs from those two. plus a big slobbery open mouthed kiss from their little brother….provided it doesn’t end in a bite.

yes. i am amazingly thankful for them.
