Have any of you ever had a particular event happen in your life that was a...a changing point? About six months ago I had an event happen to me that was as unexpected as could be and it shook my world. The event was not a good one to say the least, and left me with my broken heart in my hands. I cried a lot and I asked the question why, why, oh why like a broken record in my head. I didn't understand why it had to happen, and I didn't understand what went wrong. I prayed to God for Him to turn it around and make me whole again, but for months upon months I suffered...
But today for some reason I woke up and it didn't hurt so much anymore. The dull, lonely, pain wasn't completely gone, but it was subdued. I had a revalation and realized that life does go on, and what seems like for the worst at one particular moment in time, will be the for the best at another time in the future. Even though the event seemed like it was for the worst, I can say it's turned out for the better. I was confused why God wouldn't help me and answer my prayers months ago, but now I understand. He was helping me all along to heal myself because he knew I was better off than where I was before. Sometimes the road to healing is long, tiring, and complicated... But in the end it's always worth it.
With much love, Lauren.
