“I’ll take care of you,” he said.

Today was a long day, a hard day, a battered and a bruised day, a sublime day, a no-time day, a have to sleep sometime day…

But I have Kyle. And that makes it all okay.

Tonight at church, I had passed him a note that said I was feeling under the weather, anxious, exhausted. He handed me back my note and in sprawling pencil below, he had scribbled, “Don’t worry. I’ll take care of you.”

 

 

And isn’t that kind of what God says to us? I’m so quick to forget the second the worry and the fear creeps in. But doesn’t He say that? Don’t worry. I’ll take care of you.

It is a deep relief to fall into Kyle’s arms at the end of the day and say, “Hold me, I’m not strong enough to do this alone.” And as much as I forget it, this should be my prayer to God, too. Hold me. I’m not strong enough to do this alone.

love, elizabeth

PS: Giveaway on Friday morning!! I can’t wait to finally show you!

One of my favorite verses is the one where Jesus says "Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?" I love the reminder of that in this post.

So sweet and so very comforting to be reminded that God definitely tells us the very same thing... if only we would give up worrying and listen. =) I needed to be reminded of this... thanks!

Wow. I honestly have been looking for that all day! Tonight I fell into a rut. A bad rut, the kind where no one is there, nobody is listening, and the people who say things are like, "it's okay, it'll get better." blah. Anyway, I really needed this. Thank you for sharing...
