take heart

Hey, guys. 

I don't know about y'all, but what with the tragedy in Paris and just life in general lately, I've been feeling a little hopeless. Looking around at the world and humanity can be disheartening. But the Lord whispered one tiny verse to me today:
"I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have peace. 
In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world."
~ John 16:33
There is always a reason for hope. 
Lord, help us, for we are small and twisted and desperately longing for a loving touch from You.

I am currently longing to trek into the woods once more, to stare at the trees and smell the woods and be a whole human again.
