What you are about to witness is a series of images that may reflect a similar cycle in your own life, or maybe you watched a dear friend or family member walk down this road. These are not just pictures. This is a story…..a glimpse of my story….and maybe yours too. We are all on a journey, each day seeking satisfaction, fulfillment, success, anything that will fill the void of pain we may be bearing. Or maybe I can not speak for everyone. But, I can for myself. As much as I desired to love God and to seek Him to be fulfillment I was still holding onto things of this world to mend my pain as God was slowly crafting me more into His son. “Aint nobody got time for dat” Sorry….but for real…. I would get so fed up with the band-aids after my husband and I were separated over a year ago, but, there was always that urge within to run back for more answers on why….and let my mind wander off to believing lies…..I would scrummage and dig to find answers in all the wrong places, and I was slowly killing myself within. And clueless to the bondage that was weighing me down, keeping me from church and friends months ago. I am pretty sure I hibernated for 8 months.
The beauty in all of this mess is everytime I ran to the worldly pleasures God never stopped running after my heart. His pursuit for me makes my heart sing, makes me want to scream it from the rooftops to everyone I meet. I want people to say themselves, there is something different about that girl. And that difference be my reliance and love I have for God. All month I have been seeking how to be content in the Lord. And it hit me, true attraction from another comes when we are most content with who we are. So, if you are running yourself to a ditch of despair, will you take a moment to sit still and wait on the Lords best for your life? He will bring your best to you. Run to Him…..
