    Really needed this! I have been broken and asking what has been on my heart for a year now. Fighting doubt, fear, and anxiety. Knowing God is the only one who can help me and he has brought me such a long was from a year ago when it started. Some days seem to be harder then others but I’m thankful for my Father in Heaven that listens to me and holds me!

    • Emily, were all battling something and one problem is just as real as the other.. I would swear it take getting to that place of just cannot anymore than He will start moving in a way that says you can’t, but I can

    Awesome thanks for sharing ! I think I have guarded my heart to much – I need to let my guard down

    First off, friend you have a beautiful heart and letting the light shine through has helped so many others. Thank you. This was one of those hit home for me post, and “the mouth speaks what the heart is full of”. It makes me examine what’s in my own heart… I’ve built some pretty big walls throughout the years and always felt like I have been a ‘forgive easily’ person when I know deep down there’s things from childhood/throughout life that has held a bitter spot in my soul. Each and every day is a struggle to turn my full face/heart to Christ and fully let God take the wheels of this runaway train, but we are getting there. Thank you for your kind words and open heart and making this battle/journey a little bit easier to open up and turn to Him. Hugs?

    • It’s much easier for me to forgive you… it’s harder for me to “forget” it. Like oh that’s fine, we’re okay…. but I learned my lesson from you kind of thing. You have one of the prettiest hearts I know! I’m thankful for your friendship ?

  5. Pam, knowing that it’s not “of God” is the biggest realization. I knew it wasn’t God making me feel that way. Just bitter and mad and hurt.. God doesn’t bring those feelings. BURY yourself in scripture! I was scratching around in my bible like a crazy person for about three weeks and I can’t tell you the difference it made in my life, obviously. Total and complete difference in how I saw things. It’s hard to come together. But it’s the right thing and the best thing. God takes the prettiest things from the biggest messes! Anywhere you run, you carry you with you. You will be just as bitter without your husband as you are with him. I PROMISE. My divorce wrecked me, but if it weren’t for that.. I’d never have gotten to where I need to be with the lord. I will certainly be praying for you both! James and 1st peter are both really good books to read about how we’re to lead our lives as christians and how we are to act during trials! If I can do anything else, please please. I’d be happy to help!
