“The flower that blooms in adversity is the most rare and beautiful of all”~Unknown
Glad to see you came back hun, let’s continue where we left off. Accepting God’s gift of singleness and embracing whatever season we seem to be planted in is uncomfortable… dig in anyways. We have to grow before we can glow.
Here are a few thing’s I’ve learned on my journey:
- I’m flawed. The universe did not hold back when asked to reveal my character, defects, and toxic traits, defect after defect slowly revealed and pointed out to me with the intention of bringing me back down to Earth.
- Nobody has ever let me down more than myself. The most complex relationship I’ve ever been involved in is with myself.
- I want His will for my life, but my way according to my schedule. It’s pretty easy to get full of ourselves during our seasons of solitude. Stay grounded, babe, and be aware of yourself.
Honey, your season of solitude might not be a lesson in self-discovery. Yours might be a season of forgiving and forgetting. Forgiving others or maybe forgiving yourself for the way you tried to heal your wounds. Forgetting the methods you taught yourself to cope with and unlearning toxic behaviors. Recovery is a personal journey for each of us.
Our wounds aren’t the same either, and neither are our scars. Our journey through recovery and healing might have similarities, but they won’t be the same. We all have a divine destination to reach in life; therefore, God’s not going to have us traveling in unison down the same path. Don’t try to take the shortcut when God intended for us to take the scenic route. That scenic route brings you closer to your divine destination and further away from the things that no longer serve His purpose for your life.
He said “For I know the plans I have for you.” (Jeremiah 29:11). Our blessings have already been prepared. Perhaps this season is about preparing us for these blessings!
Do you have big dreams? His plan is always bigger and better. That wish your heart makes every time you see the 11:11, it’s on its way. Believe he’s coming through with way more than you could ever imagine! He’s using this season to make sure that you stay grounded in your beliefs and your boundaries, that you’re rooted in the word, and prepared to bear good fruit.
It may have been a long, cold winter, but spring is around the corner. Stay rooted, stay grounded; you’re about to bloom! Remember: “all things in their season” (Ecc 3:1)
