I'm finally arriving to the understanding that true joy and peace is found in the grace received thru #jesus
This is one of those things that I knew to be true, but wouldn't allow myself to experience because I try to hold on to worldly things. I would try to use my wife to fill a void. But she is broken like me. I would try to find validation through friends, but only #god
knows me well. I would put a cap on my #happiness
because I felt like I was never good enough or I don't deserve it. Today, I'm feeling more whole. I'm being more kind to myself. I'm substituting the things I think I need with the peace found thru Jesus.
I don't expect anyone to really understand what I'm saying here. This post is for me, and if helps you in anyway, so be it. Some #selfreflection
are worth sharing. Especially, positive ones. I realize that hard days will still come, and I'm making a choice to handle them better than I used to. I might fail, that's okay. But I'll get up and be drawn to #christ
a little bit more anyway.
