I haven’t blogged for awhile. Warning, this might be a long post!😊
I was sharing my story with someone today and it was a great reminder of my journey. The reason I started blogging was to help those that might be going through the same thing. I believe hearing, “I’ve been there” is the most comforting phrase.
I began this blog in July of 2018. At that time, I was broken and deeply wounded from an unhealthy relationship.
There were good things through the years, but the negativity truly took it’s toll on me. It affected me in ways that I didn’t even realize until I started healing from it. I believe we all struggle from insecurities, but when negative things are hammered in to your head, day after day, you begin to believe those things about yourself.
The truth is, we are children of a King. We were created in His image, fearfully and wonderfully made!
I’ll never forget hearing a sermon about changing our perspective and seeing ourselves through God’s eyes. That began my journey of little- by- -little, piece-by piece, day-by-day allowing God to change my perspective and fix all the broken pieces.
I often turned worship songs into my prayers and just thinking back to the different ones, God has really given me a new song to sing!
The song I first began praying over and over was, “When the hurt and the healer collide.”
There were days I would just cry out to God to take the pain away and collide with the hurt. I wondered if it’d ever end. Some days I felt like it’d never go away. God sure works in His timing, but He was there through it all!!
It was a time that God was growing my faith, strengthening me and making me who He meant for me to be.
The next song then became my prayer. I knew that I couldn’t always change my circumstances, but I believed that God could change how I handled them and change my perspective to see things more like Him. My heart’s cry became for God to change me (and fix the brokenness) and that He would be shown through me in all of it!
I’m not who I was then. God gave me complete healing, a joy and a peace and a new song to sing and pray!
We sang this in church today and it was another great reminder that through it all God has been my go to. He hears our heart’s cry. It makes me want to share it, pray it, sing it and give Him all the glory and all the praise!!
We all have storms that we’ll continue to go through! In them, we just need to sing in the middle of the storm and sing louder and louder!! In the end, we will be able to Raise a Hallelujah for all God has done!!
Thank you for letting me share!😊 Love and prayers to all of you!
