Every now & then I examine my life. “Is this what I’m supposed to be doing or where I’m supposed be?” I usually ask myself these questions. Did I take a wrong turn somewhere? Could I have worked harder doing something I was passionate about? If my husband didn’t pass on, would I ever have come out of my “shell”? If he lived, would I have had more children? They say things fall apart so they can come back together better & stronger. The greatest fall to date has been losing someone so very dear. I see there was nothing I could have done, for it was inevitable. It was a love I never thought I would give up, one that I believed, I would ride out until the end.
I can’t pretend it doesn’t hurt or that it has been easy to “get over” But I do struggle to accept this tried & true fact. That God uses your greatest fall to be the reason for your greatest rise. I’m not worrying about “the how”, I’m just gonna keep doing me & believe without a shadow of a doubt that He that brought me to it, will bring me through it. Believe with me that whatever your biggest downfall or tragedy is, God will use it to bring you your biggest blessing. I leave you with my favorite quote that I recite almost everyday.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future” Jeremiah 29 verse 11
