But It’s Not Dead…

IMG_1689I am a firm believer that constant growth is simply part of life… That in order to move forward, even when we don’t feel motivated, we must be willing to just grow…

For about two and a half years I believed huge portions of my life were dead and truly gone… That it was no longer in my best interest or God’s best interest to move forward with what I believed was going to become a reality…

In those moments… If you compared me to a tree, I felt like the weather in my environment had severely damaged me… From the outside, well I just saw a lot of darkness… A lot of things didn’t make sense… I felt really beat up and jaded…

So moving miles away was the best solution in the moment… To just get away from the heartbreak, truth and shock that life wasn’t working the way I thought and planned…

And then to truly start over… Because anything would be better than continuing to live from the place I was in…

But then… Well God’s done something to my heart… Because I thought this was all over… That I left it behind with all of my hurt, pain and fear…. That so many intricate parts of my life were dead… Never to breathe again… That I would support my friends and family from the sidelines of life… That everything God had spoken to me so long ago… Well that it would never become a reality… That I bought a bunch of lies and He didn’t need me to do what He placed in my heart… That it was over…

But, now God… In His grace… He’s shown me that it doesn’t matter what the environment around a tree looks like… Because even when there are severe storms and destruction… Even when we feel hurt, destroyed and jaded… Well it doesn’t take away from the growth within… It doesn’t take away from the tree at its roots… Because the seeds planted will still burst forth from the ground when it’s time… And what is good will still survive and thrive… To truly become all that it was intended and created to be…
