Embracing the process of letting go... of me who I thought I'd be. Letting go of my vision... my plan for how I thought things would be. Letting go of my feelings of anger... as it's not supposed to be this way.... embracing the process of letting go my need to protect my heart... to TRUST to let HIM in... to heal the broken places deep within.... embracing the that I've endured this new year.... remembering that HE has always been there for me... as I didn't die from a broken heart... that the weariness hasn't destroyed me... that the pain... sadness.. and sorrow has made me strong... to endure... to SEE others pain. To BE HIS light on the survivors shore. When my flesh is weak... and feelings of less than... left out... uninvited... I'll remember that HE'S always been there for me... always FAITHFUL to me.... just another way I know my Abbas promises are TRUE... HE is indeed close to the broken hearted 💙 #joyintheheartache

The heaviness is deeply felt... the sadness... overwhelming sorrow of loss... the pain of memories... traditions that were tucked away in our hearts... only to be visited... viewed... when feeling brave enough.... another level of healing is happening deep within... acceptance that my boys here on earth are my son Isaac... my son in love.... future son's in love.... and maybe grandsons.... all of it is so bittersweet... the exchange of losing Seth... letting go of what will never be... to opening myself up.... to receive HIS blessings that my time as Mama is evolving... a deeper understanding of HIS plan... HIS goodness.... a promise that speaks deep into my weary soul... blessed am I who mourns... for I am indeed comforted... anchored in HIS hope... all because of a sweet little baby in a manger... WHO made a way... for me to survive... unimaginable loss... tears fall as I step up into the next level of acceptance... and embrace that maybe it's about letting go of the feelings of Christmas... and embracing HIS gift of HOPE.... all because of that precious babe in the Manger... my CHAMPION... my JESUS 💙👑 #joyintheheartache

Yesterday I was given a seemingly impossible task to complete at my job. I was frustrated because I didn't understand how I could fix the problem. So when I tried explaining to my boss why it wasn't done... I felt trapped.... taken back to a time of my life where the seemingly impossible was always on my horizon. I had spent all morning trying to solve the problem, and the person who had the answer was out of the office so it remained my problem. Knowing I couldn't not complete the task I started over again.... thinking "JESUS please help me...." ~ this morning as I was soaking in HIS word I realized that solving the problem and completing the task was because I finally let go of doing in my own strength... and called on my helper 💙 how grateful I am that HIS HOLY SPIRIT is there to help me... lead me... guide me.... and teach me. How thankful I am for HIS overwhelming peace..... unfailing love.... and endless grace... days upon days.... this journey full of HIS sweetest mercies. If ever I questioned whether or not HE cares about my job... my answer is a resounding YES... truly HE is in the details... paving the way... all to transform me to become more like HIM.... my HELPER.... my CHAMPION... my JESUS 💜👑 #joyintheheartache

I've had to be courageous in my life more times than I can count. Suffering... struggle.... pain... have been my story. Starting when I was just an innocent little toddler. I've had to fight to survive... fight to keep going. When I was thirteen my life was unbearable... I wanted out... I wanted to be free... yet I was too afraid to fight... so I kept hanging on... when really all I wanted was to quit. Ending my life was all I could think about... Ending the abuse... the suffering... still I chose to survive... never truly believing my life would ever have meaning... purpose... at 13 I felt my life was over... then again when I was 18 to 24... I was done... I had come to the end of myself... my marriage to D was ending... I was broken... angry... and desperate for relief.... I felt like a failure as a mom to my then two precious daughters. Still instead of giving up... I held on.... and HE stepped in and saved me. Rescued me... over and over I chose to be brave .. to make courageous choices to keep going. Little by little... through each trial... test... storm.... loss.... heartache... sorrow... grief.... love.... joy.... and blessing... HE'S been with me.... and because of that I've not fallen... I've held on... and even when... even though... even if... HE'S proven to my weary soul HE'S worth it... that I'm worth the fight... I'm HIS BELOVED light shiner... HIS ROYAL TREASURE.... HIS CHOSEN DAUGHTER.... my ABBA... my CHAMPION... my JESUS... HE is within me... I will not fall... always.... forever... HE promises HE will help me 💜👑 #joyintheheartache

Words aren't difficult for me... choosing to always react and respond in love, life, and truth are what's difficult for me. Especially when I'm feeling anxious or upset. The fifteen year old in me wants to come out flipping people off... and ready to tell them what's up. Most of the time I'm able to quiet that fighter.... survivor in me.... except for when I'm triggered by an emotion a situation that plays the broken record of my past. It's in those moments where I have to dig deep into HIS truth... hold tight until the feeling passes... yet there are people who my enemy uses to reach me... to taunt me... to trap me... and that is when I fall... as I'm living in the flesh... and not by HIS SPIRIT. This grieves me as the more I seek HIM and HIS ways... I know this is HIS plan. So the next time someone "helpful" decides to say something to me... I can rise above the emotions... rise above into HIS loving embrace where HE will give me the strength to practice self control until the temptation to tell them where to put their helpful words... oh LORD JESUS so much more of you.... and so much less of me 💜👑 #joyintheheartache
