Painful Issues

"Without confrontation of painful issues from the past, it is impossible to go forward with a healthy soul."
-Joyce Meyer

So often looking back means dealing with the aching pain that I have attempted to bury. I think that Joyce put it perfectly. I knew there had to be a way to find balance.... "Deal with the hurt from the past- because it will free you and make you whole." (my summary/my perspective-which is subject to change!)

Be my hopes

The last few days have been difficult. There are so many decisions that have to be made. I feel like (as a single mom) I lack the balance that having a partner in this adventure would have to offer. I try to picture God as my partner now- together we will raise Katie. Despite that image, I still feel so inadequate.

I found this song tonight. I never heard it before. It is exactly what I need. I keep playing it over and over.

"And I will worship You, Lord, only You, Lord. And I will bow down before You, Only You Lord.

Take my fret, take my fear. All I have, I’m leaving here. Be all my hopes, be all my dreams. You're my delight, my everything."
