Who knew life would find us here?
Once upon a time he was the prince in my fairy tale. Now he’s just some guy I used to know.
He was a guy that made me want to be a lady. But, then, even that didn’t turn his head. So then, he became the guy that taught me that I didn’t need anyone’s approval to validate me. Sometimes I wonder if he ever loved me – if I ever loved him? Sometimes, I feel sorry to him for everything that happened. I can finally say that I forgive him, for everything that happened.
I recall wanting to hold on – to what? Yet, letting go. One time, a million years ago, a deputy said to me, “You have to see the writing on the wall.” I was young back then and couldn’t hear him through the tears… But, when you live long enough…
The writing on the wall becomes quite clear…
It takes a Savior to rescue someone like me. Not just anyone will do!
Looking back I can see the hand of God on my life, to bring me to this place – even when I felt like I was all alone and hopeless. He literally loved me back to life. Anyone who has returned victoriously from the brink of despair will know what that feels like.
He taught me how to love again – not just others, but also myself. God demonstrated His grace and mercy towards me. Allow me to say, I have not been the same!
I heard it said that when we go through something, it becomes a strength of ours to be used to help others going through a similar situation.
“And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat: But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.” Luke 22:31-32 KJV
