There are moments where the sacred and the mundane intersect...and those moments take your breath away.

Jesus has overcome the world,
and that gives me great joy and lasting comfort in the midst of trials and sorrows...

But sometimes, we can rejoice in the small, quiet moments with Him...
where if we could but freeze time, it would be perfect.

Moments where His love is palpable and Heaven seems as close as your next breath.
Doubt and pain cease.

Sometimes, it isn't about "the big picture"...

it's about the small moments...

little "kisses" from Heaven -
when you know God is with you, and He knows what you need.

It's these small, precious moments that allow you to put one foot in front of the other...
and go on.

When striving and uncertainty cease...
there is peace.

God may not choose to calm the storm that you find yourself in today.

But do not overlook the beauty and peace that can come in resting in His presence 
while the storm rages around you. 

that carries you through a storm,
or just a bad day.

But its glow and warmth linger.
And your heart knows "Lo, I am with you always..."

You simply answer,

Joy will come in the matter how long or dark the night...

Take heart, there is great joy in knowing that you are loved by God, and NOTHING will ever change that.
