“Sometimes good things fall apart, so better things can come together.”
I remember years ago I was in a very dark place, I was driving down the interstate lots of construction going on, it was a huge mess. But as clear as I could tell you God spoke to my heart and said “That is what I’m doing with you, Nicole. Sometimes I have to tear things down to rebuild them the right way.” WOW! I was speechless. Has God ever tore something down in your life in order to rebuild it?
Is it painful, heck ya! Is it worth it…..ABSOLUTELY!
“You can suffer the pain of change or suffer remaining the way you are.” ―
God is close to the broken hearted and rebuilds the broken!
Come let us return to the Lord; for he has torn us, that he may heal us; he has struck us down, and he will bind us up” (Hosea 6:1).
Old habits, old ways have to be torn down to allow the new to come. What do you need to let go off and allow God to tear down and rebuild?
Ephesians 4:20-24 we have been taught to “put off your old self which belongs to your former manner of life and is corrupt through deceitful desires and to be renewed in the spirit of your minds.
As you go through dark times, remember you are NOT alone. He brings RESTORATION!
called me by a new name
You’ve taken my shame
and in it’s place, You give me joy
You take weeping and turn it into laughing
You take mourning and turn it into dancing
You take my sadness and turn it into joy
You make all things new, all things new
Therefore the LORD waits to be gracious to you, and therefore he exalts himself to show mercy to you. For the LORD is a God of justice; blessed are all those who wait for him. Isaiah 30:18
We tend to to walk by what our feelings tell us, but our feelings are fickle and CANNOT be trusted. See we can only see what’s going on in front of us or around is but God sees a much bigger picture. He sees the beginning to the end. He knows ALL the details. He knows what you need and exactly when you need it.
His plans are to give you a hope and a future, not disgrace, heartache and despair. He loves you with an everlasting love precious one. So never doubt when something begins to fall apart, TRUST that God must have something even better for you and your family! I’ve seen it so many times in our family.
In times of rebuilding having a great support system like small groups, friends and family are so important. This is where being vulnerable can be hard but I’m just telling you if you can open up to safe people in your life you will find you are not alone in your struggles. So often you find people are going through the same thing. Keeping people at bay and not allowing them in, hurts you but it also hurts them in the process because they aren’t able to do or say what God wants them to do. We are build for relationships.
“Vulnerability is not winning or losing; it’s having the courage to show up and be seen when we have no control over the outcome. Vulnerability is not weakness; it’s our greatest measure of courage” -Brene Brown
