I wish we didn’t have to learn things the hard way, but sometimes we do have to. Because sometimes it takes a painful slap in the face to wake up and see the truth. It takes falling down hard to get back up more determined than ever. It takes being dismantled in all the broken places to be put back together more beautiful than ever.
In His mercy He reached for me, even in the midst of my foolishness. I was so utterly blind in my ways – but no longer.
And now that I see clearer than I’ve ever seen, I will press on with zeal in my heart and fire in my eyes.
“But as for you, you meant evil against me; but God meant it for good, in order to bring it about as it is this day…” // Genesis 50:20
