I feared picking up my phone.
I feared answering my front door.
I feared going to my mailbox.
I knew it was just a matter of time that, one day, I would make one of those choices and I would collide into the heavy hammer always swinging around in my life. I feared the possibility of being hit so hard one time that I would not be able to recover emotionally.
The devastating blow did come. One day, I discovered it in my mailbox.
Bad choices will always catch up with you.
Today, I am so thankful for that trip to the mailbox. It was a trip that completely changed the course of my life.
Sometimes, it takes having the wind knocked completely out of us before we allow God to come into our situations and teach us to fly.
Now, I live my life in a state of praise. Praise because I am completely aware of how God is capable of taking a broken shattered life and putting the pieces all back together.
keep lifting all your praises to God!
(Psalm 113:3 Message)
What do the pieces of your life look like today?
Have you handed all of the pieces over to the Restorer or are you trying to hold things all together by your own strength?
Are you running away from your problems or are you facing your fears?
