Thinking back on that time, I was still new to the “God thing” and still struggling with myself on a daily basis. God was working soooo hard on me and my heart….showing me that He loved me no matter what and that He does not make mistakes. God made me just the way I am and He believes in me even when I don’t believe in myself.
These days my heart has softened and the wall I had built around me is nearly gone. It creeps up once in a while but when it happens I never fail to hear God say to me…”Hang in kiddo. I will not leave you or forsake you. You are my beloved child and NO MATTER WHAT THE REST OF THE WORLD THINKS OF YOU, I’m PROUD of you.” I love it when He does that.
I pray that each of you, no matter if you are far into your journey with God or just beginning a new adventure getting to know Him, remember one thing. When we are lonely or need a hand, just call His name and He will be there. ALWAYS.
“For in the day of trouble He will keep me safe in His dwelling; He will hide me in the shelter of His tabernacle and set me high upon a rock…..Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD.” ~ Psalm 27:4,14
