Don’t let love skew your view of the truth.
I found that phrase written in the pages of my Bible some months back during a Bible study. Over the months that phrase has come back to me time and again, shedding light where it was meant to. Have you ever really examined your truth? YOUR truth, not the one that someone else tried to impose upon you?
As I look back over the last year and the path it has taken, I couldn’t have orchestrated it if I had tried. I can see God’s hand at work. His hand of protection shielding me from even more pain than I was already in the middle of, even when I didn’t want that protection. His hand of guidance in finding the path I was meant to follow. I can see His hand in friendships forged and passions discovered!
So, my truth, the one I fought so long to come to terms with, is that the box that my ex tried to fit me in was never meant for me. It was too small, and I am more of an outside of the box kind of girl. That love that I fought to keep, well he wasn’t meant for me either. He just didn’t fit. But what God has lead me to, is that the qualities that I still struggle to let go of in that old love, they will exist in someone else. Someone who will better know how to love me. In someone who will fight for me, and who will spend his time searching for the smile on my face before finding the one on his own face.
