So it’s no longer oxymoronic to place the word ‘victors’ next to who we used to be: ‘victims’, because this is the way to defy average, anxiety, and ageing.
And there’s no shame in feeling the feeling, or owning the emotion, but here’s the chance to be truly great:
To trust God to straighten things up that look and feel crooked.
To let grace be the antidote so anger, ageing and anxiety don’t have to be.
What’s messing you up right now — isn’t what matters.
What matters is that nothing can mess you out of the mark of His love.
…if we could see Him in everything we do we won’t ever be ousted with our disappointment, our misplaced expectations…

Breaking up is always painful.
And you may feel like no one sees you – or understand the depth of the agony you’re going through.
But He does. And His compassion on you will walk you through your hard.
