Sooo yesterday my post “sounded” like I was totally down and in despair. Well….I have been the kind of person for a long time that chooses to bare her soul and sometimes that backfires on me. A lot of the reason is because some people in this world cannot deal with transparency very well. My heart’s desire has always been to reach others through my experiences and give them HOPE. When you are vulnerable to a hard-hearted world it can be difficult. I just PRAY I can be stronger and remember my story is for those who need to hear it. Even though there will be judgmental people and they may say hurtful things I just have to get back up and go forward. This morning, I was still struggling and talking to my husband about how I should have never shared anything. Well, after that ironically I picked up a devotional book that I have used for the past 3 years or so. I just happen to turn to this page where I had been journaling and I have no idea what year it was, but it’s been a while back. I hope you can read my writing. It’s funny how God works. I just have to keep asking for strength when I struggle with the issue of “over sharing.” Somebody needs to hear it and somebody needs to hear you, too! ❤️ So, I will choose today to be THANKFUL for my experiences and I pray they help someone even if I am judged for it.
2 Corinthians 4:8-12
8 We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; 9 persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. 10 We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body. 11 For we who are alive are always being given over to death for Jesus’ sake, so that his life may also be revealed in our mortal body. 12 So then, death is at work in us, but life is at work in you.
