My peace mug is one of my favorites and I broke it recently on the way out the door to the bus stop.
For my birthday, I received two more peace mugs from my aunt and friends💝
When I saw them in the cupboard recently I thought about how often when something "breaks" in our lives, how it can weigh us down and break us.
I believe that we have a choice, we can long for what was or trust that this can and will be turned into something better than before.
For me my peace (mug) was broken but then I received double the peace I had before😊
The same has been true in my life.
Anxiety, depression, cancer have all been a part of my story and have all tried to break me, but I have seen that it is because of those things my life is richer and fuller than before.
I share this in case you are in that broken place. You are not alone. It is a tough place to be in but I invite you to...
Pause. Breathe. Pray.
And trust that this time isn't meant to break you but to transform you and your life into something better than before.
With love and hope,
"Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him. - James 1:12
