tethered

I think sometimes my heart sings when my words are confused and silent. Sometimes those songs my heart sings are a welcome tether to a soul too-often floating on the breeze. I don't love the idea of tethers, but with a heart prone to wander, I'm well aware of my need. In the middle of Monday night, a wretched 24-hour flu monster attacked from underneath my bed. My body ached. My head pounded (partially due to caffeine withdrawal). My gut wrenched. Sick. Sick. Sick.

Tuesday was a blur.

Wednesday I prayed God would show strong in my weakness and He was my tether. I shared with some beautiful ladies about God's design for us as women - something He had planned from the very beginning to showcase His glory. God is so gracious to let me see Him in these faces - to let me watch Him move in my near-nauseous state. What a gift to be tethered.

And when my soul drifts away, He is my tether.

I hope these songs encourage you today, reminding you of your need for a tether. Don't fight it, friends.
