Friday Restoration

10th June 2016

This season is full. But honestly it’s dry. I feel as if my heart and my bones are dried up. Able to offer nothing. I open my mouth to speak but can’t find the words. My heart searches for the culprit that’s causing me to feel this way. No one thing comes to mind. So I grab at the air for words that will make sense. I come up empty every time.

I am reminded it’s just a season. It’s a moment in my life. One that will come and go. But I am in the thick of it and it doesn’t feel like it will go away anytime soon.

This weekend I wanted to share with you an offering from Emily Freeman that has been breathing life into me this past week. She has put together a week’s worth of still moments were she plays the piano, reads a scripture and then speaks just a few short minutes about it. Those 3-4 minutes of stillness in the morning has slowly been restoring my soul.  20160511_141702 Yesterday I listened and she shared Romans 6:4-5. It’s still bringing me hope.

Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.  For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection” 

Even in the dry seasons, the valleys, the deaths, the ends–we are also in the likeness of his resurrection. And that’s restoring my soul.

Happy weekend friends! I pray that Emily’s offering blesses you as it did me.

    Thank you for sharing this Shaina! I really needed that. I have been feeling something like this for a while and have been stressed out about it. Thanks for the reminder in the verse that there is hope. Such an encouragement!

    BTW: Love your beautiful words in the opening of the post.
