“Nevertheless, each person should live as a believer in whatever situation the Lord has assigned to them, just as God has called them” 1 Corinthians 7:17
It’s short, y’all. Just read it??
God has flipped my world upside down since my divorce last year. I never was friends with Jesus until then because I didn’t think I needed to be. I honestly didn’t even know what a relationship with Him was (I’ve come to realize) outside of a Facebook scripture and a five minute devotional everyday. That wasn’t REALLY helping me? I could handle things all on my own… and I (thought) did. I pushed through some very nasty stuff in my short (not so short) years and that one battle conquered me to the point that I needed something more. I couldn’t.
I didn’t ask for it. I didn’t even know what “it” was. I didn’t have the words but My heart knew it was defeated and I needed Him and He knew too. He stepped in and took over. I still can’t find words to tell you the impact that day has had on me. It’s hard, it’s commitment, it’s time- but I choose Him every single day. I try my very best, I fail Him so bad y’all. Daily. But He knows I’m trying. I know I’m not perfect, y’all know that too. But every day He takes a piece of the old me and replaces it with another new piece. A prettier piece. Now what He is building? I have no idea, but I know it all has a purpose. Every intricate detail of every individual piece of hurt and darkness and pain has an explicit purpose in our lives. Find the light in the cracks of broken. Live in it.
