Two devotionals came through my email from Proverbs 31 Ministries.
"Shattered Beyond Repair" and "Why We Pursue Toxic Friendships".
The titles grabbed my attention immediately....reminded that the content of both once applied directly to my daily life. I try not to linger too long in those back-in-time moments, but am happy there are writers who touch on those topics, topics that others might find difficult to pen...to help others.
I'm happy to say I've gained control over negative thoughts and have learned when to let go of not so healthy relationships.
I've come a long way. I've known times of joy, times of heartache, times of want, times of need. Ive loved unconditionally, generated happiness....all for the greater good that God intended. Still, there's no escaping broken pieces, the fragments that resurface time and time again....why? Because of wrong choices made...by others. I will continue to pick myself up and continue to re-build. The spirit within me says I must.....for my daughters, for my grandchildren. While others made life-altering choices to harm and humiliate and their cold-hearted and sick actions re-visit innocent hearts of those I love...My story of Faith will encourage and inspire them.... there is no defeat in Christ Jesus.
I haven't decided what I'll be writing about or if I'll follow a theme. I am making a commitment to write or at least share a thought, a quote, a scripture for the next 31 days. Something positive to brighten your day. Hope you'll stop by!!
