Can I be real honest for a minute?

I am truly the type of person that tries to look for the good in all situations.  I try to see the bright side.  I find happiness in the small things like a good cup of coffee, a text from someone saying they were thinking of me, a hug, my boys laughter.  I've never asked for much out of life.  I simply want to show the love of Christ to everyone I meet and be the best person I can be.  But let's face it, I fall short every single day.  Some days I fall short moment by moment.  There are some days that the pain in my heart feels like it's going to rip right out of my chest.  Lately, I've been feeling that a lot lately.  With the impending divorce, losing my grandfather and so much other stuff going on, my heart aches.  I never know how much to share.  I know that I will continue to find the little things that bring joy to my life even in the midst of the storm and pain.  I am praying for direction and clarity.  I want God to rain down HIS will for me and make the path so clear that I know exactly what I am supposed to be doing.  I know He will bring peace if I seek Him in obedience.  Will you please be in prayer with me for wisdom and discernment like never before?  I know He goes before and behind me.  I know He works ALL things (the good and the bad, the happy and the pain) for the good of all who love Him. 

Father, please hear my prayer.  Please make my path straight and as bright as can be so that I know exactly where I am supposed to go and do.  You are the everything I need.  You are the prince of peace and my comfort at all times.  Thank you for the work you are doing in me and around me.  Thank you for preparing me for your Will.  Thank you for providing counsel when I need it the most.  Thank you for those who are showing me YOUR love.  Thank you for just EVERYTHING.  I need you every single moment for every single breath.  Keep my eyes on you and a spirit of grace in my heart.  Thank you for letting me know over and over again I can trust You.  Father, I just thank you.  I love you.  Amen

Thanks for letting me share my heart today.  There is pain but there is always something to be thankful for and happy about. 

That's what Happiness is!
