Nike and Brokenness
I got some new kicks! Thank you Nike for making small enough and still cute shoes for my little feet.
I went for a 3 mile run today and I ran past the place I fell. I was scared I'd do it again but I wanted to prove to myself that I could do it. That I could hop over the broken stone and make it on the other side of a smoother surface. I think that's what we all hope for right? To get through the pain of whatever life experience we are going through and pray that we will come out stronger. A little better. A little bit more aware of how we step next time. Sometimes we feel broken like that cobble stone but there's hope that there is a smoother surface we can get to. If your heart is broken or heavy, I pray that you will have clarity on how to mend it and if you don't have clarity - just wait. Psalm 91 says: Those that wait upon the Lord will renew their strength.
If you need to take time and be in a place of waiting - know no matter the outcome you will gain strength because you waited. It was worth the wait.
