LORD, you have blessed me. I know it and I am acknowledging it here, and now. You have taken me to some places that I would not have trusted You to go, had you given me the choice.
But I went.
And I found that not only did you refill my empty heart, with a different kind of love, you healed and continue to heal it, piece by piece. Its not easy to be patient God, and I know you know I struggle with that in particular.
I know you have things in store for me that I couldn't possibly imagine, desires of my heart and things that I need… I just need to be more patient – and you're teaching me!
I'm understanding a tiny bit more, the concept of time and the art of waiting on you, God. I am thankful for my children and their smiles, despite the pain it can sometimes cause… because I know it brings me closer to you. I'm thankful for the ability to be around those that love me most, though it hurt me to need them, because I know it helps me recognize I need you.
I'm thankful that my broken heart is healing, and that love has been almost overwhelmingly poured into it, covering the canyon created when Jason left me. I know he's with You, and that give me some peace.
Even more so, I know You understood my pain, and that's why you've blessed me with so much love. Understanding how much you love me, even though its only the beginning… ( and knowing that is AMAZING!) is a journey I dont think I really knew the magnitude of until recently.
Maybe that was what this was for me, an awakening. Whatever your will, whatever the plan, I thank you in advance, and open my heart to you.
I lift my hands in total praise
