|My life has been filled with many obstacles. Overcomming is not always easy, but it is possible. You see, I never had the support of a loving mother until recentlt. For years, all I wanted is for my mom to be there.
Nevertheless, God's grace sustains us. His grace helps us to be healed from brokeness and feeling unwanted.
In my younger years, I lived with my Grandma. She was like my mom fo such a long time. My real mom made a lt of bad choices. Ths led to my middle sister and I to be left in the care of Grandma. That was a wonderful place to be under the circumstances. I loved her dearlt, but she didn't give birth to me. I appreciated all she did for me and my sister. However there were times I didn't feel like I belonged. I felt so unwanted. For she favored a cousin of ours just a little more than my sister and me.
That was ok though, I knew she loved us. That was more than I could say about my mom.
When my mom married her 1st husband, she left us with my grandmother. Like I said, Grandma took care of us. Whn we were with, it was like she wasn't ther. She slept most the time. If she wasn't resting from working so much, she was at work.
Over the years, that has changed. With time, God is able to heal all wounds. He knows how to mend brokeness and restore, as well as create new relationships. Mom and I are growing together and we getting close. That's a blessing for me. I realize time can quickly get away from you, if you waste it on things that no longer matters.
Healing is a process that has to be nurtured with time. However, you have to put the time in that kis necessary to heal. Now that God is healing m from my past, He is making it possible for my mom and I to get close. And for that, I am thankful and grateful.
They say that time heals all wounds, but it more than just time. It's God's love and mercy that lets you see what is most important over time.
I have learned through the restoration from brokeness, God grace is sufficient. His grace will bring you throgh places of hopelessnes and lonelyness, to living in perfect peace. His grace will mend bad relationships, as well as bring joy in sorry. I am so glad to know God's grace in my everyday life.
