My heart has been broken, and I am pretty sure that it will never be completely healed this side of Heaven. I Love God with all my heart and believe that he is still in the Healing Business, but I believe that there will always be an ache in my heart where there is missing piece.. I truly believe that God wants it there to remind me to lean on him and as a result my Faith in him will grow even more deeply. It is there so that I can identify with others' pain and have a real compassion for other people who will walk a similar path.
I would do anything to have Faith back, but at the same time I accept what God has chosen for us. I do not like it, but my ways are not always his ways. I desire to live for him and put him first in every area of my life. So I will Praise Him even through this storm!
Last week I was driving down the road and suddenly had this intense feeling that I wanted to tell her that I Love Her. I never had that chance, at least on the outside. So as I am driving with tears rolling down my eyes, I was overcome with the fact that even though she never breathed in any air, I loved her so much and I wanted so badly for her to know that. I wanted to be able to tell her.
I believe that this is a lesson God was sharing with me. I feel that he was saying that this was just a small glimpse of the Love he has for us, and how much he wants us to Know that! Have you ever loved someone with all of your being that you could hardly hold it all in? Well, that is just a smidgen of how much God loves us. We cannot even grasp the depths of his love. At the same time he wants our Love for Him to overflow in us! Oh, how I want to overflow with God's Love!
Oh Dear Sweet Faith, I want you to know how much I Love You and miss you! I cannot wait until I get to see you again!
