The walls around my heart should be thick and tall.
The walls of my heart should have dark bricks of bitterness.
And honestly, the walls of my heart have been high and they have been thick.
My body & my heart have been through so much more.
Life doesn’t make sense. I remember spending a lot of time demanding the answers, researching the possibilities, crying over my “WHY’s.”
My life story has more than one chapter of sad stuff. I’m sure yours does too. Do you have the chapters tucked away? Or is your hard chapter being written now?
Life doesn’t make sense. Life straight up sucks sometimes. It just does.
You need to know God’s love for you is just waiting on the other side of that wall.
You are on this journey with me.
And a big part of this chapter is marking these moments of HEY, GOD IS LEGIT so we can celebrate & grow in this together. Because, honestly, when the hard comes at me, I still grab a brick and start building.
He just keeps dropping bits of heaven into my day, kicking that wall down.
WHAT IS THE BIGGEST BRICK IN YOUR LIFE NOW? What or who does it look like? How does it make you feel? How heavy is it? It would take a lot, something pretty powerful to knock that down, right? Mine too.
Jesus had a brick, in fact, it was a large stone. “Make the tomb secure by putting a seal on the stone and posting the guard.” Matthew 28:66
Does it feel like your brick is huge, and bitterness may have sealed it up, with worry standing guard?
This Easter, light and love are waiting to bust through your wall. Do not doubt the power of Jesus’ love for you. After all, that huge stone “holding Jesus in his tomb…” yeah, that just rolled away blowing everyone’s minds. Let him blow yours away.
