There’s an old Chinese saying I believe talks about how when clay is broken they use gold to seal the cracks and to be molded back together… Isn’t that the same for us as a human? When we are broken with life situations but we get back up doesn’t it makes us that much stronger? Well… If not, we better start thinking that way…
I was honestly terrified of getting hurt again but God has been dealing with me in that area. I almost feel some sort of freedom from that feeling of being terrified. God has been showing me that even if I do get hurt, He will never leave my side. Even if I do risk the chance of putting myself out there again and getting hurt, God is going to be there when I’m hurting. I’ve been broken many of times, even when it was my fault. God has assured me that when or if it happens again… He is going to be there when I fall. Though I might lay my bed down in hell, He will be right there beside me. Therefore, I’m so done being scared. I don’t want to miss out on the chance of seeing something so beautiful because of my fears of being hurt or getting hurt again… I don’t want to push anyone away or out of my life because I’m scared they might leave. That’s not a way to live life. This world is temporary and so are people, but God is forever and He will sustain me, I need to keep that in mind. If I let fear stop me, wouldn’t that steal my joy? I’m honestly ready for anything that God has in store for me. Even if I do get hurt, it won’t matter in the end cause I’ll get back up. God will shape me the way I need to be molded. I have found that I am being broken to be molded and I want to embrace that journey.
Hey, also as I was typing this out and fixing it up, I was listening to this song and it is perfect for what I’m talking about in this post. Check it out! I actually attend the same college as the girl who made the song. Hope you like it 🙂
In order to love who you are, you cannot hate the experiences that shaped you.
