No Strength to Carry On

Psalms 18:28
You Lord, keep my lamp;
my God turns my darkness into light.

Have you ever cried so hard and so long you literally had none left?  No more tears.  No more energy.  You were totally exhausted.  You may have even collapsed.  You have no idea where you will get the strength to move on from that moment.  You don’t have one more step in you.

Yet, somehow you do.

Where does that strength come from?

Why does your heart continue to beat? Your lungs continue to breathe in and out. The next day the sun still comes up and so do you. How?

I have been there.  When my first husband came to tell me he no longer loved me and wanted a divorce.  When my mother called to tell me my brother had been murdered. Saying goodbye to loved ones for the last time.

How did I take my next step?  The same way you will. Hope! Hope that the next breath will be a little easier.  The next day will find a smile somewhere.

I will tell you it will not be easy.  It may even seem impossible at times, but it will happen.  Life will continue on and you will find smiles and laughter again.

God will keep your lamp burning and turn your darkness into light.
