Some days you're fine. and other days you're not...and that pain starts to creep into the dark spaces of your heart - the places that maybe you've forgotten about, or have just ignored. And you start to feel.
But you want to heal, completely. and you want to let go, and move on. cause you know - deep, deep in your soul - that there are far better things ahead than what we leave behind.
So you look for something to try and give you comfort - to help you remember. and you run across beautiful words like Scott's. and you find hope. and you find strength to keep going forward.
to keep fighting. Cause you know that anything worth having in this life doesn't come easy. And you know that a butterfly only gets his wings through the struggle of breaking through the cocoon. And that truly, the darkest hour is just before the dawn.
So you hold on, because you know that the promise of the rising sun is on its way.
For the mountains may depart and the hills be removed, but my steadfast love shall not depart from you, and My covenant of peace shall not be removed,”
says the Lord, who has compassion on you. -Isaiah 54:10
We forget that they are just ideas. Our idea of happiness can prevent us from actually being happy. We fail to see the opportunity for joy that is right in front of us when we are caught in a belief that happiness should take a particular form."
I have been having a lot of fun making these typography / quote / picture things.... I love them because I set them as the lock-screen on my phone, and then every time I turn on my phone I see the truths that my soul needs to remember and grasp hold of....
we are both under the same starry sky. and we are both held in the hands of the One who breathed the stars into being. the One who writes our stories. who knows our hurts. who catches every tear we cry. and who promises that all things will be beautiful in their time. and Who promises that He will be with us every step of the way.
