When I embarked on this great big adventure I was full of excitement, anticipation and hope. I dreamed big! I hoped for so much. My vision was beautiful and strong and enticing and I felt all things were possible.
My great big Canadian has not turned out the way I had hoped or expected. I look all around and I see shards and fragments of all parts of my life. No area has been left untouched and I have a broken heart and broken dreams. And now I am captive by fear of falling.
Yes, you see shards and fragments of all parts of your life scattered around. I know your heart and all the dreams you hold and held. When you see brokenness, I see strength and beauty. I see faith and hope rising. I see that you are the light now, not the picture perfect vision that you once held. Do not despair for I will lift you from all these broken pieces and place you in the dream I have planned for you. You cannot even begin to imagine all that I have in store for you and with you. You are most precious and beloved and when I work to bring about endings, I have already determined a new beginning. You might not be ready and sometimes you need to be content to just be. Because when you are still, that is when you know I am God. I am sovereign over all the brokenness, but know I can restore, redeem and rebuild and will not leave you here.
