If you’ve been a follower of mine you’d have noticed I have not been faithful with launching many new posts.
Not because I no longer enjoy writing.
Not because I have nothing to say.
*Because I have had lots I’ve wanted to say!*
However, if I’ve learned anything in my lifetime it is…
not everything we think – needs to be said.
Rather, it’s because I’ve been busy picking up the pieces.
Pieces which started to fall almost 10 years ago bit by bit, but which came crashing down in a huge heap around my heart just over a year ago.
But that’s not what this post is about.
It’s not going to be about the what or the who.
It’s not even going to be about the why.
Instead, it’s about the answers God has been giving to me.
And my trust in them.
We often have this preconceived idea of what bravery looks like – dusting ourselves off, keeping busy, pulling up our socks, and pushing ahead in the face of loss.
But, maybe being brave really looks like letting our tears flow, honoring and sitting with our pain, letting ourselves fall apart and asking for help when we need it.by: @grief unraveled
Sometimes God’s answer to our prayer is no.
By the grace of God, I am learning to trust the No; admittedly not quite as much as all the yes’ He has provided throughout my life,
but I am trying.
For the sake of – God is faithful.
God is good – by virtue of – He is faithful.
Even when we are not faithful to Him.
we belong to Him.
And this has been a very important lesson to embrace.
hugs n’ blessings to all those seeking answers under the comfort of His provisions!
Personal note: I have missed you all in this cyber-space. Please know…I look forward to sharing more of the lessons I have been learning ~ along the way!
Lord, help us to proclaim, “We belong to you!”
