Well, God Girls, it's been quite the day.
So today I got dumped by my boyfriend only he decided (thinking it would be less painful for me) to get one of my friends to do it for him. You can imagine I was feeling pretty heartbroken considering this is the same guy who told me every day that he loved.
But I started looking back and I realized that it was a wake up call from God. You see, a few nights ago I was feeling really bad because I had been putting this guy above God (which I've learned is definitely not good) so I started to tell God (to prove that I loved Him more) that if He felt it was necessary to take this guy out of my life that I would be okay with it. But it was so painful that I literally couldn't. Although last night I was at my wits ends with being far away from God, so I told Him "God, if you think that you ever need to take Eric out of my life, I'd be okay with it because I know that You're plan for me is perfect even though it may hurt."
So, here I am today and Eric is not my boyfriend. I see now how unhealthy he was for my spiritual life because I was so consumed with thoughts of Eric that there wasn't any room for God. God has brought me back on my knees to Him and I seriously couldn't be any happier about it.
A good verse to remember in these hard times is from 1 Peter 5:6. One of my best friends gave to me when I was feeling down:
Be humbled by God's power so that when the right time comes he will honor you.
I really think that this verse really applies to my situation because I was in serious need of humbling. Remember: Never let a boy become too important to you, and if he does it's better to end it because it truly will be for the best AND God can take the most painful situations to make you stronger and more beautiful.
I'll leave you gals with this:
The caterpillar thought that the world was over...then he became a beautiful butterfly.
Love you gals! Praying for you!
