Holding onto Hope and Finding Rest

Give me the faith to believe You
When I'm stuck here in my fear
Give me the strength to trust You
When my vision's blurred by tears
Give me a hope for tomorrow
Cause today has gone so wrong
I'm on my knees
Give me the faith to believe

Even when I cannot see You
You're still shining, You're still shining
Even when I cannot hear You
You're still calling out my name
Even when I cannot feel You
Your arms are open
Always holding on to me
Give me the faith to believe

You say You'll never leave me
That Your love will conquer fear
You say Your day is coming
When You'll wipe away my tears
Give me a hope for tomorrow
Cause today has gone so wrong
I'm on my knees
Give me the faith to believe

Even when I cannot see You
You're still shining, You're still shining
Even when I cannot hear You
You're still calling out my name
Even when I cannot feel You
Your arms are open
Always holding on to me

Won't You give me the faith to see the invisible
Give me the faith to believe the impossible
Give me the faith to receive the incredible
Oh give me the faith to believe it
Oh give me the faith to believe it

Even when I cannot see You
You're still shining, You're still shining
Even when I cannot hear You
You're still calling out my name
Even when I cannot feel You
Your arms are open
Always holding on to me

-"Faith to Believe" (Shane & Shane) 

I don't have many of my own words to share today. The past 10 days have been a blur of ER visits and tests, doctor's consults and exams all culminating in a lack of answers and feelings of discouragement and fear of what may be lurking hidden in my body, undetected by everything we have tried so far.
So today I just can share the words of "Faith to Believe" by Shane & Shane. I am discouraged, but I am clinging to hope-because I cannot let go of hope no matter what. 



My mind and heart and body are tired and broken today. So today I am resting in my Heavenly Father's arms. Clinging to the neck of my Jesus. 

Blessings,
Meri
