Almost ten years ago when we said “I DO!” I didn’t know much. But oh boy I did have a backup plan- if everything went south and you turned out not to be my Prince Charming, then I was going to BE somebody. 😳🤦🏼♀️🤷🏼♀️ I carried that burden of fear. I let it live with me in the “what if”. What if he leaves me?
What if he’s unfaithful?
What if, what if, what if?
I didn’t know that I was letting that fear, that lie, live with us, live between us.
But God knew. And having Him show me my wrong thinking has been painful- to know I’ve let an undeserved lie creep into years.....Yet through prayer and amazing friends and just asking God to SHOW me where these fears come from, I’m free of this...this weight I didn’t even know I was dragging around y’all??!!!! If you are finding yourself always feeling insecure, and not measuring up- if you see another beautiful woman and immediately think your husband deserves better than you and your hot mess self? I am praying for you. That you would surrender these feelings to the One who loves you MORE than even your husband. Let’s vow to give our marriages and relationships back into God’s hands where they belonged in the first place.
No “thing” that I have tried to control by clenching it, has ever blossomed. It’s time we bloom y’all!! (And if you’re single? Then this applies to you too...open your clenched hands and receive what was always headed your way.) #mybestfriend #graceongrace #undeservedbutcherished
