your heart is amazing and you’ve chosen to share it with me.  thank you.

Stop avoiding things you don’t understand.

I’ve had a revelation.

Be thankful and rely on Christ one hundred percent or fail miserably.

Let’s pretend that was really easy.

You hit the nail on the head.

Yes, I’m definitely afraid but perfect love casts out fear. And I am not perfect but I am trying. This is no way to try and live life. There has got to be grace and I’ve got to expect to give it and receive it.

thank goodness

that Jesus is full of grace.

Because this is heartbreaking and gut wrenching and it really shouldn’t be that big of a deal to me.  Or should it?

But His grace says it’s not my responsibility to make your decisions.  And His grace says to look at the speck in my eye before taking the plank out of yours.  And my isn’t it nice to know that we have a Savior who encourages us to purge the sin from our own hearts even if it seems to be the most minute thing in order to bring Him glory and our hearts joy?

Why do I seem to keep coming full circle and being broken by the same things?  I just don’t know where to start anymore.  But He says I must start with my own eye and my own speck.  And my vision is blurry and my fears are irrational and this can change.  Thank goodness for that.
