i was just scrolling through Facebook, and a friend posted a quote that hit me.
"Occasionally, weep deeply over the life you hoped would be. Grieve the Losses. Then wash your face. Trust God. And embrace the life you have.
I don't do any of this often. If I weep, it's in private. I don't grieve. Or if I do, I wouldn't know what it looks like. Washing my face, not even, I just use water. Trust God: I honestly don't do this well. I question Him more than anything. And embracing the life you have. I am trying to do that because the life I have is great, but more importantly it's the one I have. I will continue to dream, believe, and cling to the Cross.
I believe I don't weep or grieve because what good comes from it. Does it change what's happened? I don't want to grieve because my grief may embitter me, and I have no time for that. Washing my face, Trusting God, and embracing the life I have is difficult even if does get easier.
