This is for you.
You who have longed for days, weeks, years, a lifetime to feel the kick of life within but find yourself empty still
You who have outwardly smiled and laughed celebrating their joy while inside your pain was with knife-like precision stabbing your heart
You who have endured the questions, the suggestions and the comments from those who will never understand the depth of this emptiness
You who find yourself “less than” in a world where we can have everything
You who look “fine” on the outside but find yourself broken and bruised on the inside
You who long for this one day to quickly pass for it is not yours and may never be
This is for you who want to hide away avoiding the awkward moment where it is easier to smile empty than explain “I am not”
This is for you because I know
Because it is also for me….
Oh sweet friend, may we find the comfort in the only One who understands our broken places.
May we hold tight believing in His greater purpose even when we know it has never be our plan.
May we give up this invisible burden and hang on to His amazing grace.
May we dare to trust Him in the pain and yearn with hope to the future.
May we find comfort in knowing that every tear we cry is seen by
His loving eyes and captured by His loving heart.
On this day when we find ourselves left out…
May we find the strength within to move beyond this empty dream
and whisper thanks for what we do have.
Uncontainable, immeasurable grace
