Linking up with Emily Freeman's Tuesdays Unwrapped today ....
I need to write. There are a million things in my house right now that need to be picked up and put in their place, but I need to write and begin to sort through these thoughts and feelings in my head. Three hours ago my fiancé and I broke up. God was leading him somewhere He was not leading me.
In Emily Freeman's post about Tuesdays Unwrapped, she said write about where you are and not where you wish you were instead, and then find a small moment to celebrate. So, here I am ... sitting cross-legged on my living room couch, tears streaming down my face with my heart broken ... looking for a moment to celebrate.
What I celebrate tonight isn't a moment, but it's a God who I know will get me through this. When I was single, I would pray to God that I knew whether He had called me to be single or not, either way He would get me through it. And, I still believe that truth tonight.
While I may hate this point in my journey right now, I KNOW that God will pull me through it. There will be tears (lots of them, I'm sure), questions with seemingly no answers and confusion, but there will also be moments of peace and love and unexpected joy throughout this grieving process. He's shown me those things before, and I know He will again. That is the truth I am clinging to tonight and that is the God that I celebrate and am thankful for .... always.
