While meditating today in the many things I have gone through in the past year I am so grateful that while I felt at times like I was going though a dark desert I know I was not alone, God was with me every step of the way! And while I bear the scars of a rough path Jesus is my healer the one that mends all of my wounds.
I am not going to say that I have been strong and stood firm in God's promises, there were times that I felt pitty for myself and licked my wounds and as the prophet Jeremiah once saidWoe is me for my hurt! My wound is severe. But I say, “Truly this is an infirmity, And I must bear it.” (Jeremiah 10:19 NKJV) I too thought that my hurt was so great and of course no one has hurt like this before.
Thank God for His mercy towards me! He did not allow me to just stay in that state of disappear but instead picked me up and began the process of healing and restoration.
You see, one thing that I learned through this season is that I can not please anyone, I can not meet everyone's expectations but one thing I know: that regardless of what people expect of me and regardless of how they view me my focus is to please my Heavenly Father and in that I find satisfaction because it is in Him that I am complete.
