He's near.

what if in the middle of your spring, an icy blast tries to throw you from your height.
catch you in your weakness, accuse you in your failures.

what if, just when you thought you had learned to walk above the waves with Jesus,
something below caught your eye. you start to sink.

we all come to this place.

and i'm learning, it's a normal thing for believers.
it's called a test.

if every thing was sunshine and laughter day after day,
how would all the kinks be worked out?

so, don't give up. don't give in.
the sun is always shining. there just may be a cloud in front.

don't turn from Jesus.
turn to Him.

grab yourself a warm cup of peach tea,
your Bible,
and spend some time with Him.

believe me, it'll help a lot.


  1. Thanks, Em - this is beautiful!

    "what if your blessings come through raindrops
    what if your healing comes through tears
    what if the thousand sleepless nights are what it takes to know You're near
    what if trials of this life are Your mercies in disguise"

  2. Thank you Em! <3 this is so helpful!! :) I really enjoyed reading this! SO encouraging!

  3. This is really good :) Blessed are those who don't see, but choose to believe. God's near as you say, we just have to trust him and that he is...
