Survival Is…..

Standard

It’s all or nothing with me isn’t it? If you receive my blog posts via email, I apologize for the overload today. It’s been a weary week, and I just wanted to get it out before New Year!

In light of the recent posts about our family struggle and survival mode, I wrote with a tired mind, and felt like it was beginning to get jumbled, and there is still so much I wanted to say. SO I decided to write some feelings out a little differently!

Survival is…

  • Admitting you can no longer fight the fight alone.

Survival is…

  • Stripping your child of all his comforts, and even some of your own.

Survival is…

  • packing up and leaving a family Christmas gathering, only 15 minutes after arriving, because some live differently than you.

Survival is…

  • Letting it go and walking away, when others challenge your decisions.

Survival is…

  • Carrying through with your decisions when those close to you just don’t seem to understand.

Survival is…

  • sticking your ground, even when it doesn’t make sense….just for the sake of sticking your ground.

Survival is…

  • Believing in your children when all hope seems lost.

Survival is…

  • Believing in your God through every. single. storm.

Survival is…

  • embracing in His New Mercies each and every morning.

Survival is…

  • Making the decision to choose Joy. Each and every day.

joy

Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed,
for his compassions never fail.
They are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.

Lamentations 3:22-23
