Life can be unpredictable. Recently a friend of mine told me that he thinks we need to grow apart-through his mother-over e-mail. I was crushed. I didn’t know what to do. But now, after a couple of days I feel released. It’s hard to explain, he was a good friend, but I think my heart was getting too wrapped up in it. I don’t hold it against him-now. I hurt a little still but I feel like I am standing with a blank white canvas before me. I feel free!
It’s a new beginning for me. I think that sometimes we need these new beginnings. They release us from Heart ache that may be yet to come-or even from heart ache that we are experiencing in that situation.
New beginnings don’t mean you have to hate that person or situation you were in. I don’t hate this friend for what he did. Sure I’m a little hurt, but I think it was for the best now that I look at it with clearer eyes. I realize that I was getting too wrapped up. My heart was taking me places that I didn’t even realize I was going.
I can’t tell you why you are going through something that is gut wrenching. I have questioned why I am going through this hurt, but I can tell you this-God can bring good out of it. You may not think anything good will come out of it, but I can tell you from personal experience that when I go through something that hurts me-time and time again God has brought good from it.
“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who[a] have been called according to his purpose” Romans 8:28.
I know it seems like I just keep re-writing on the same topics, but this is what I go through and I write about it. I am being an open book with you guys. I hope that God speaks to you through my writings and gives you hope.
Let God work in you, shining out your Innermost Unfading Beauty.
