carrying my cross

Father, I am weary. I am pleading for your mercy.  I am waiting for your answer and I’m struggling with surrender. But I’m trusting through the darkness that surrounds. This is the day the Lord has made. I will rejoice, I will give thanks. And live my life to bring you praise. This is the day the Lord has made.

Father, through the shadows I will seek you, I will follow.  For your glory, for your kingdom, for redemption, and for freedom. In my weakness, through the power of the cross…

And I will carry my cross, carry my cross…and you will carry me.

words taken from Travis Cottrell’s “This is the Day.”

Feeling the weight of anxiety in my heart tonight. I harbor so much fear and doubt in my heart about the future and God’s plan. I’m learning to trust in His grace and mercy, but I have made so many mistakes that I fear are insurmountable…

Psalm 94:19 gives me hope during times like this…

when the cares of my heart are many, your consolations cheer my soul.
