Her story was painful, even without all the details. You could hear the anguish that resulted from the disappointment, disapproval, and rejection she endured every day.
She tried, but she couldn’t let go of it.
“I believed more in the pain of my past than in His power to love me unconditionally,” she said.
How often do I do that – believe more in me, in what I want to hold onto, than in Him and His power?
But the good times and bad, the hard and the easy – none is wasted by a Father who loves us through it all.
All those cracks, all that brokenness?
They form the perfect path in.
And His love goes straight to the heart.
