Hello old friends, new followers and fellow bloggers-
Today has been a day marked with anticipation and wonder, a day filled with excitement and beauty. Last night I was really down in the dumps, I mean really down- EXTREMELY down. I was so down that I felt weak, vulnerable, fragile. I’m so happy that I serve a God that loves me in my weakness and who still carries me in my brokenness. When I realized that His strength was made perfect in my weakness, tears filled my eyes and my heart was overwhelmed with this AMAZING 🙂 🙂 feeling, It was like something I could not describe, a peace like no other and a happiness that could not be shaken by my present circumstances. God has my back; He knows exactly how I’m feeling and He knows how to love me even in this place of vulnerability.
For so long, I depended on people- people’s words, actions, encouragement, validation, praise but as I grow in my love relationship with God, I realize that people don’t matter and their influence means nothing. All that matters is God and HIs influence on me. I know that He loves me and that His love makes me complete and whole. He makes everything better! After I wrote you all last night, it was like a burden was lifted off of my shoulder because for one the first times in my life, I was completely honest about how I felt- and it was this truth that made me free. I feel good, I look good and I know that I am in the best place I could possibly be in life- in a weak place so that in my weakness- He can be STRONG!
Until next time,
P.S. His love fills me up like an ooey-gooey chocolate chip cookie ❤ ❤
