Struggling...

I am struggling today. Not with my children or with my home and not with my sweet Nathan. I am struggling in my heart today. There is an ongoing struggle, one that goes back many years, that hurts my heart deeply. There have been so many times when I have felt progress has been made with it and the end of the issue seems to be so very near that I can smell it; so close even that I am beginning to rejoice in it's closure. Then, like a lightening flash, it rages again and my heart is as troubled as it has ever been. The hurt is brewing right now and I don't want it. I want to be able to brush past this offense and not let it curtail into something that causes stumbling. However, I am already beginning to trip over it as I type this.

I am not free to share the details of this struggle, but I pray that the Lord will hear my heart right now and will comfort me. The Lord knows the details and I pray that He will lead me in this.

Praying for you right now that you would not be ensnared but with God's power overcome all that is hindering you from His joy.

RIGHT NOW. I'm praying that it passed and you're free of that burden. I can understand and know how easy it is to get stuck in that past hurt/present hurt thing. :)
