In my morning walk with Georgia I listened to a podcast that left me asking myself the questions:
What have I not grieved?
Have I moved forward in life and put an experience in a box within my heart that will remain unopened? - or - Have I cleaned out the box leaving my heart open to receive more of what life has to offer?
I share this with you today too in case you have a closed box from a life experience you’ve stuffed away in your heart. I invite you to join me today to...
Pause. Breathe. Pray.
May we be courageous enough to open the box and grieve what is in there. - the hurt, the pain, the loss, the anger, the sadness, etc.
Why would we choose to do that?
Because if we never grieve the losses we experience in life, we are holding ourselves back from allowing God in fully into our hearts, minds and lives. And therefore, we are holding ourselves back from experiencing life as fully as we were made to. So let’s choose today to clear out our cluttered heart and make room for love to dwell there instead.
It may not be easy, but it will be worth it💕🙏💕
With love and hope,
