2018 has been a very tough season of life and God’s love, grace and mercy shown toward me is an impeccable word not yet discovered. My heart is full because of His love for me and even when my eyes are swollen from the many tears this “strong one” has shed, God is gently teaching me daily I can lose a lap or two and still win the race.
Maybe this small bit of transparency will help someone not give up along the way. I’m not above understanding your pain and brokenness; neither am I the Christ-follower who has it all together or pretend to. I know what it feels like to be discarded and left for dead by individuals, situations etc. To be in the midst of people and feel invisible, looked over (because you’re the strong one) and misunderstood.
My daily prayer is that I will ALWAYS have compassion for those who suffer in silence. That my connection/call to those who’ve experienced multiple seasons of emotional, spiritual, physical and sexual trauma will never sever. I’m on a road to recovery with you and I know EXACTLY how you feel. I’m sorry you’re hurting, confused and trying to figure out where to go from here. I can assure you the pain won’t last always. I love you, and I’m praying for you.
"And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their testimony, and they did not love their life even when faced with death.” ~Revelation 12:11
