Have a Blessed Week!
I'm NOT a victim, I'm a survivor.
My hopes and dreams are for every woman to become the woman God intended her to be. This is a blog about the journey, the trials and struggles and the triumphs over abuse. You are NOT alone. You're stronger than you know.
Wow! I don't think there are even any words for the way this day has been woven. God definitely works in very mysterious ways as He reminds me on my journey to become closer to Him. All these years He has been placing puzzle pieces in front of me, but because I thought I needed to do things my way, well, we see how well that worked out for me... So finally I wised up and realized that God really is in control and he already knows how things are going to play out in my life. And most important I learned to trust him completely. I have been able to deal with this day. If this had happened 5 years ago, I would have fallen apart. Now that I have let God have control, when bad days happen, I give myself a few hours or maybe even a day, then I tell myself to put my big girl panties on and life continues. Do I struggle after I've given myself that time, ABSOLUTELY, but I've learned that it's ok. I'm reminded that Rome wasn't built in a day, so if it wasn't built in a day, God doesn't want me to be fixed in a day. It's all in his timing. I spent 7 years of my life trying to get away, and once I did the real journey began. I honestly did not realize how much damage had been done. Divorce is almost like a death, only the other person is still alive.....It's a process. Every aspect of your life is affected, your health, your finances, everything that you took for granted is gone, that security, as crazy as that sounds. All of it gone in a heartbeat, but the really cool thing that You do not realize in that moment is that it is all in God's plan. He is preparing you for an incredible life. And you will probably find yourself asking what you did to deserve the pain that is happening, but it's all to start your journey. To show you how strong you really are, to give you confidence that you never knew you had. That everything they told you that you would never have.....GUESS WHAT! You WILL have it, it may not be today or tomorrow, but it WILL happen. Never give up, keep plugging along and I promise you life gets better. You find out that you can make decisions and if it doesn't go as planned, it really is O.K. I promise you that! So never ever give up, just keep being that train that says I KNOW I CAN!!!!
Have a Blessed Week!
