Broken Heart Ashes

Broken

Rejected

Lost

Afraid

Hopeless

Yet, then God reminded me:

I am far from broken; because He is doing a new thing in my heart (Proverbs 27:19)

I am far from rejection: because He will never leave me nor forsake me (Deuteronomy 31:6)

I am not lost: because He sent His son to die on the cross for ME
( John 3:16)

I am to not be afraid: because He has called me out of the darkness and into the light. ( 1 Peter 2:9)

I am not hopeless: because hope always wins with God on my side (Psalm 62:5)

hope word

Some days my heart breaks and the weight of all of the pain is so overwhelming. I have wanted to give up. I have wanted to wall myself off once again from life, but I have done that before. (not good). I have searched my heart and know that I must move forward by being happy, whole and free from the past.

I cannot heal anyone else…

I cannot make anyone else want to be healed.

All I can do is pray and pray for those wounded souls involved in the relationship breakdowns within my family as well as keep moving forward into the light God has shown on my own steps.

Life is hard.

We often get battle weary, but God gives us strength for the next minute, hour and day. Then the next and the next.

Nothing is wasted; even the

Ashes from a Broken Heart.

One day it will all make sense

Until then, I pray, love, hope and move onto the next step of life.

God allows us to find hope and healing in the smallest ways at times, but often it is in the deepest healing that freedom is ultimately found.

Such is my story.

As a child, I had many dreams.

Dreams of:

being a wife and a mom

being a lawyer or President of the United States

being able to travel and see the world

But over the years I gave up on most of my dreams.

Life overwhelmed me and I shut myself off from the world but more importantly, I shut myself off from allowing God to do wonderful, amazing things in my own life and heart.

Anxiety and fear controlled every waking moment on most days. Certainly, there was no traveling the world or becoming a lawyer. How would I ever achieve any of those dreams when I could barely leave my own home?

Such was my life.

But then God did an amazing thing in my own heart through the Word as well as others that He allowed to minister to me and my struggles. My life began to change and the doors of freedom opened a little more each day.

I still have times where I feel anxious, but the difference from today and a year ago;

I DON”T GIVE UP and I KEEP MOVING instead of quitting. Before, I would give up and just go home if I felt anxious, but I have decided that I will no longer let that “little enemy” of mine hold me back. I WILL ALWAYS WIN..

and I will always be living the dream.
