I don't know when it happened, but my heart broke. And it's scary yet good because it's exactly what I needed. I still feel the need to be strong, to fight letting go and just dwelling, but I want to. I want to be kind and loving with no fear of it not being reciprocated in the way I hope. I want to be tender and not cover up my broken heart by being defensive. I want to cry, and more importantly, I want to rest in Him.

I am fumbling back to where I want to be. I was reading the Bible the other day and came across this verse. Something tells me this is going to get me through what lies ahead:

"For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline."
(2 Tim 1:7)

Bring me joy, bring me peace, bring the chance to be free. Bring me anything that brings You glory.
And I know there'll be days when this life brings me pain. But if that's what it takes to praise You,
Jesus, bring the rain (MercyMe)
