When Joy Feels Like Slippery Soap



When you are not as strong as you always thought you would be...

He still loves you.


When you feel the tears pooling yet again...

He still loves you.


When your questions out-number your answers...

He loves you.


When your prayers skitter around the ceiling and fall back in your lap...

He still loves you.


When you feel alone, though you know He is there...

He still loves you.


When frustration rises and confidence wavers...

He loves you.


When joy seems like slippery soap...

He still loves you.


When you choose to believe anyway...

He loves you.


When your faith is tiny...

He still loves you.


When you take a step onto that teeny tiny faith...

He loves you.


When your heart is tired...

He still loves you.


God loves your tired, tiny, frustrated, lonely, doubting, fearful, weak little heart.

Because He does.

He loves you...

And me.

  1. Oh, and I LOVE YOU too! This is so beautiful, Susie! Yes, some days my faith does seem like slippery soap. Tears come unbidden, questions still abound, hope flickers but keeps burning...I will not let Satan "poof" it out...I'm gonna let it shine...(thank you for your prayers...they help keep the flame lit). This was perfect today. Bless you dear friend.

    1. Thinking of you and others, including myself, who are walking through hard stuff. God is not upset or disappointed in our questions and doubts at all. He knows us, made us and deeply loves us.

  5. Oh my Susie...now I understand why you were drawn to the words of the song and the scripture I posted. I'm sorry you're going through hard stuff...I'm so ready to get to the "works it altogether" part!! Can we add "when you open the bill from the attorney and he's charging you another $3,000 for a case he botched and you don't know where it will come from and you call him all kinds of ungodly names...God loves you anyway?" Seriously, this touched my heart - I too am living it and living it far too long. Thank God the one thing that will never change, never go away, never fail, is that He loves me!

    1. Thanks Toni. Yes, the song and scripture pic that you posted are blessing me very much today. I have rad some of your journey lately and it makes me feel like a wimp in comparison...but I also know that when we feel over whelmed it really makes no difference what is happening...if it is hard, its hard. Ha! Thanks for your kind words and I sure hope your stuff gets resolved soon! Susie

  6. Good preaching- when I feel lost and can not find my way- He will find it for me. I just stand on His word- it's all any of us can do.
