There once was a girl who looked in the mirror and felt unloved, she put on a mask every day to hide who she really was or how she really felt. She had parents that loved her very much but wanted to shelter them from the pain she was experiencing. She had a heart that believed in rainbows and would pray that her dolls would come to life one day so she could have more friends. Some evenings she would pray to a God that she was unsure if he heard her little voice in this big world.
He heard her, and had a plan. He planned to show her how to forgive, let down the walls, let go of the pain. He knew that her warm heart would be used for good.
This little girl was me. Looking back on those years I always thought I would never want to go through them again, but now I see the bigger plan coming to fruition. The ability to see the pain without someone speaking a word….. The ability to care and help others see beyond the current moment.
11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.Jeremiah 29:11
We live in a broken world.
There is heartache and pain.
But there is always sunshine after the rain.
Every purpose has a place.
We may not see it at first.
Don’t lose heart.
And shine your vibrant light He has given you in the dark.
Concentrate on the moments that take your breath away.
Give gratitude for the day.
There is power in prayer.
Give the pain away.
He is there.
Waiting for you.
May You be Blessed,
