There are days when it takes all the strength inside of me to hear truth above the noise of the lies inside my head. But today I refuse to give into the temptation to sit and be sad and wish that things had worked out differently for me. I will not wonder about where I would be if I had made different choices, will not look back and try to see where it all went so wrong. I won’t wish things had turned out better or pity myself for what has happened in the past. Today I am going to live in the Light–in God’s promises which I know to be true. I will trust in His transforming grace.
I’m holding onto hope.
That God will cover all my wounds– that He will allow me to live without fear that everyone who enters my heart is destined to break it.
I’m clinging to the truth.
That I do not have to act like the girl I once was, that I don’t have to give in to the temptation to be her, because in Christ, I am a new creation.
I’m grasping at faith.
Trusting that the Lord is near when my heart feels broken and that He saves those who are crushed in spirit.
I’m resting in His peace.
Because I know I am fearfully and wonderfully made, and I know that the Lord works all things for the good of those who love Him.
