I should be finishing up my dissertation but I wanted to quickly write something, to encourage myself and anyone else who needs it.
I think we need to stop thinking that just because people can quote Bible verses or wear the right clothes or be popular that they have it all together. I think we need to start realising that everyone is broken, and everyone has their trials, and that everyone’s heart has been torn to shreds countless times.
I am not alone in my brokenness and I can be fixed, but only by Jesus, and no matter how much I run from that it doesn’t make it any less true. Being angry with Him won’t make life any easier, yelling at Him won’t piece my heart back together.
I’m surrounded by some amazing people, and a lot of them have prayed for me over the past week, and without that prayer I might be in a far worse place than I am now. Fellowship (and if that word scares you lets just call it friendship or community) is the best thing in the world and I know that if I was in the same position as I am now, a year ago, things wouldn’t quite be going the way they are today.
