Pain like no other

I have decided that there is no pain like that of a hurting heart. While physical pain whether broken bones, gashes, concussions, surgery and so on are really painful, it goes away relatively quick to be forgotten and only remembered on rare occasions. However the pain of a hurting heart leaves you with a lot of memories and lots of not so great experiences but you do come out of it eventually and you are often much stronger and better off, and I have seen and experienced the Father in those excruciating times and he has held me and been my strength through it all. So here I go again, and well, its Him that I seek and Him that I long for. It's him who heals this broken and hurting heart. :D If it weren't for him, I wouldn't have made it this far. So while my body still shakes and I can't seem to not be anxious it is Him who gives me peace and Him who carries me through.

So to the cross I look and to the Saviour I cling... for in Him I find all that I need.

Heart changes

Today has been quite a day. But I am constantly reminded of His faithfulness. His enduring faithfulness. For in Him I can trust and I will not be let down. He holds my heart, no matter what state it is in He has it. His justice is so so beautiful. His mercy is SO great!!

Dear heart,
Thank you for letting me deal with some things you have held on to for a while. I know the hurt you have and I know it's not easy to face, but let's face it so that way a part of you doesn't die off.
You hold so much in you... let's not go this long again without examining your condition.

Dear mind,
Thank you for finally slowing down a little. I know you had a bit more time than usual yesterday to process what has been going on recently. Let's continue to process on a continual basis I'm not too fond of doing it all at once.

Dear body,
Thank you for enduring that 27 mile bike ride yesterday in 100 degree weather. And thank you for not sun burning!! Let's do it again on Friday!

Dear City of Arlington,
As you continue road construction I would greatly appreciate it if you also continued sidewalk construction. You see the sidewalks randomly disappear at time and leave me stranded in a big whole. And also where you do have sidewalks please fix the huge gaps and bumps. My bike and my body do not appreciate crashing and crashing hard especially when you are thrown to the street and there is oncoming traffic. Thanks

Dear today,
Let's have a wonderful day! Let's go on a few adventures and enjoy all that the Lord has given us this day!!!!
