long enough

I recently realized a few parts of this story I am living have been told long enough. They are now woven into who God designed me to be. To keep going over them or drawing attention to a certain dogeared page, feels like idol worship or an attempt to appear strong. Perhaps to gain a bit of identity from it too. There is much to be thankful for, a plan, a purpose and more suffering to endure, as long as we live here on earth. This is my own conviction and I would not dare interfere with where you are in your story.

I remind us of the words spoken to Jeremiah, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you…” (Jeremiah 1:17). If this was true for Jeremiah, then it is true for us too. That does not mean we understand or even like some parts, but I do not want to just stop living. Besides, God also says, “I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore I have continued my faithfulness to you.” (Jeremiah 31:3).

Lord, please remind us of your love and faithfulness, especially in the hard parts of our story.
