My dear friends,
So I’m going to give a little clarification for yesterday’s Honest Post. I am truly okay. While I shared with you the empty, dry place I’m in, I should tell you that I see it as a good thing. Because I recognize that I need to allow God to heal the broken parts of me and I’m ready for that. I haven’t been. I’ve been in a place where I didn’t know what to feel. A place where I didn’t feel free to share what I was going through and that made me feel like I was trapped and not being real. And you probably know me well enough to know that I hate not real.
When I wrote that prayer in my journal yesterday I just had an overwhelming urge to share it with you all. And I’m glad I did. Because my heart for this blog is to be an encouragement for people…even when I’m not having a great day…or week…or year. Here’s the first of many comments and emails that came in:
“Rebekah your honesty is what keeps me reading your posts. I love how you just put it all out there. Also you may not know this but most of your posts I feel like are God using you to speak to me. So thank you for being God’s instrument in my life.”
I’m willing to be honest and vulnerable because I’ve learned that if I’m going through something, someone else can probably relate and may just need to hear they are not alone. So, if you are one of the people who said I struck a chord with you, stay in touch. Let me know how you’re doing. And I promise I’ll do the same here. I know God has great things in store and I can’t wait to tell you what he’s teaching me.
I appreciate all of you who have told me you’re praying for me. I’ll take that! But I also don’t want you to worry about me. I’m on my way back. I promise. It’s all good.
