When Tomorrow Feels Too Far Away

I know these words are meant for the here and now, for todayI know that practicing His love in the here and now and today is what will make me love greater tomorrow.  But everything inside me aches to live these words out by nurturing two sweet children who won’t be home until what feels like too many tomorrows.

The same way my friend aches to practice these words with a child born of her womb.   
The same way another friend aches to practice them with a man to call hers.  

28 "Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, 
and I will give you rest. 
29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, 
for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 
30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”

...lift up your voice with a shout,

lift it up, do not be afraid;
    say to the towns of Judah,
    “Here is your God!”
See, the Sovereign Lord comes with power,
    and he rules with a mighty arm.
See, his reward is with him,
    and his recompense accompanies him.
He tends his flock like a shepherd:
    He gathers the lambs in his arms
and carries them close to his heart;
    he gently leads those that have young...

Do you not know?

    Have you not heard?
The Lord is the everlasting God,
    the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
    and his understanding no one can fathom.
He gives strength to the weary
    and increases the power of the weak.
Even youths grow tired and weary,
    and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the Lord
    will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
    they will run and not grow weary,
    they will walk and not be faint.

Hope in the LORD, o my soul.  
You can do something great even in the waiting, by waiting with His great love.
