The Pain in a Promise of the Past

It wasn't until recently that I understood that the past is really in the past, and it's okay for me to move forward. It's okay for me to let it go and make room in my heart for the future God has in store. It's okay to miss it, but it's not okay to let it make me miserable. The past only has as much hold on us as we allow it to, and most of the time that hold is actually us holding on to it.

A Collision with Grace

Sometimes, God will allow you to crash and get hurt to save you from something that could possibly destroy you. You'll see it coming, you'll see the obstacle in front of you and try to avoid it but you won't be able to. You will crash and possible get hurt, but the crash will just be a collision with His grace over your life saving you from something far worse.

Rain is Coming.

My life has been scattered with these droughts. More often than I'd like to admit, they come when I become too consumed with seeking worldly things, and I forget to seek the water―the thing so very vital to my existence. The noise of the world distracts me, and before I know it, I'm angry at God for forgetting about me.

While Waiting 

Waiting is a time to open our hearts to God, to seek Him, and to listen to His small still voice whisper into our hearts. It’s a time to refocus our hearts and minds to what really matters as He removes all distractions from our lives. It's a time to dig deeper into His heart as He reveals our own.
