I am sitting by the shore pleasuring in the lapping waves of indigo blue, and you come to mind. I’m not sure why, but I surmise as I witness the beauty of nature, my mind searches for other such references. I pause with your image in the peripheral and wonder if you know, truly know, how beautiful you are?
You shared, life is hard right now. I know this to be true. I understand security seems an illusion as all once familiar seems lost; you are overwhelmed, and at times hopelessness overshadows life itself. But I also know, and I witness, amid all the turmoil that roars in the crashing waves, your spirit is still one of kindness, love, and light. This is the beauty of which I speak.
You have asked how to make life whole again. To be honest, there is no single answer, nor is there a quick fix. The only universal element is to make a deliberate choice of healing, not just for yourself, but for everyone. Choose love over anger, forgiveness over blame, letting go over holding on. Let God work in you and through you believing His promise that just as He knit you together in your mother’s womb, he will do the same in your brokenness.
Life-shattering moments are often marked by date and time, my friend. But strangely, healing ebbs and flows like the oceans’ waves until one day you find yourself dipping your toes into a gentle shore.
It is my wish for you when the dark moments prevail; you envision a beautiful dream for your future and you cling fast to the image. My prayer is that you trust God walks with you, before you, and behind you. He has promised to prosper you and not to harm you, and to give you hope and a future. His plan is so much greater than you can imagine for yourself. Trust.
And, above all, I pray you come to see the beauty I see in you, the beauty which gleams to surface, even in the crashing waves.
