I bought this sign a few months ago as a visual representation of my hearts declaration. I needed the reset. The in my face choice to see the incredible blessings laced through my story that fill up my days. And I’m so thankful.
If I’m going to be honest, this past decade has been hellish. Of course there have been incredibly amazing things also, but at times it almost felt as though the pain was suffocating all of the good around me. I couldn’t experience the blessings because my heart was blinded and bound up.
This past year God’s began leading us out of those woods. Bringing peace to the pain, and returning joy to our hearts. After hanging out with my husband, and Joseph Dalton this last week this sign is flooded with new meaning. Not only are these truly the good ol days, but God truly knits purpose in all of the pain. If we make the choice to allow Jesus into those tough places, He alone can use what the enemy meant to destroy us, to instead, propel us further into our calling.
Heartache is a beautiful opportunity. We can either shut down, or rise up and show the world, they aren’t alone.
