Moving on–regardless of the reason–will surely cause you a lot of pain throughout the process but that doesn’t mean you’re going to isolate yourself from the joy life has to offer and lock yourself up in that big box of your past. You’ve got to move farther to see the big picture–the whole thing!! Think of Julie Baker’s dad notion of the whole being greater than the sum of its parts. It’s that way with your misery, happiness, disappointments, failures, success and love; they sound chaotic, but put them all together and you’ve got a masterpiece.
Ultimately, you’ve got to trust God. You’ve got to trust Him that He won’t let you get through it alone. You’ve got to trust Him your healing. You’ve got to trust unto the amazing plans He prepared just for you. For in every pain, shame, all our failures and heartbreaks, His grace will shine and His name will be glorified!
