I felt compelled to write today and I’m not even sure what’s going to come out as I do. I have always utilized this space to help formulate a message springing forth from within my heart. I have an aching desire to minister to those who are hurting and I’m sure it stems from the hurts within my own life. I know that in order for me to have anything to offer anyone, I must first accept it for myself.
I’m not sure why God has allowed for my path to take some of the turns that it has over the years, but I have complete confidence that He never looses control even when it feels like things are falling apart around me. My circumstances are part of a bigger picture and I am always being invited into the beauty of what the picture could become.
I’ve had some dark nights. You probably have too. Maybe tonight will be one for you or maybe not. None of us will ever be able to escape the abyss of sudden destruction, but we are all given the opportunity to crawl our way out. Some stay in the darkness forever and some come up for air and find a new way.
I want to be one who quickly finds her way through the shaking. I want to be one who remains when others fall. I want to be one who faces and conquers. I want a never-give-up spirit that allows me to capture every blessing that God has for me on this side of heaven.
I don’t want to limit your pain, but I do want to encourage you to get moving. If you have found yourself stuck or distracted by grief. Don’t stay there too long. It will attempt to swallow you alive.
Move along friends. March. Open your eyes and look around you. What does God have for you today? Who is He putting in front of you to love on? What dreams do you still have to accomplish?
Give yourself permission to enjoy life today. Go run your hands through some sand, walk barefoot in the grass, pick some wildflowers, or stare at the moon tonight. Chase after the peace that your heart is longing for. It’s available. Catch it and then share it with another wounded soul.
You aren’t guaranteed tomorrow. This may be the best life gets. Seize your time. Take back what the enemy is attempting to steal from you.
Today could be the day that changes everything.
