Teach me to do Your will,
For You are my God;
Let Your good Spirit lead me on level ground.
– Psalms 143:10 (NASB)
Level ground, what does that look like? What does that feel like?
In general, life doesn't feel level. But as I read this verse today, God’s Word moves me forward. At some point, I hope the ground will begin to steady. Days will occur when I won't feel like I'm still sliding down a valley or stumbling over sharp, painful rocks. The interesting thing is, there's beauty in the rocky terrain, but it is often unsteady and painful (especially in bare feet or barefoot emotions - we really aren't Hobbits).
Taking these words, and this prayer of David to heart for myself this week means:
Asking, Proclaiming and Trust the Let
I am marinating on these thoughts today, in what feels like an up, down and sideways type of week.
I pressed into GriefShare yesterday , cried an annoying amount all week, leaned into the light and spent a lot of time thinking and praying.
It's all part of my grieving-on story.
And part of the ongoing adventure of Josh AND especially Jenn.
Thanks always for following along and your encouragement on the way.

Hi! It's Jenn Brown, writing my story that is now slightly different as we enter a season of new grief. On September 30, 2019, my dear husband Josh passed away after battling brain cancer.
