A little piece of my Heart.

Help me to be patient in my pain because i don't want to ruin the blessings You have for me in us travelling this journey together. Teach me to keep my eyes and my heart fixed on You, in hope that You, and only You can meet my every need. Thank You that there is beauty in suffering and thank you for continuing to reveal Your heart for me as You teach me what it means to be a woman of God. I praise You for my healing and for this road of recovery that i walk each day! Thank You for holding my hand and showing me the beauty and the rich blessings all around me. I am in awe of the Warrior God I experienced in You fighting the battle of Colin's cancer for us and I am so honored to see and experience Your equally tender and loving heart in the aftermath. You eminate what true beauty is and each day I want to be more like You but i fall so desperately short. Thank You that Your love fills the holes of my imperfections and injects hope where my own human strength runs out. I love You, Thank You for loving me inspite of all of my shortcomings.
For now, i'll wait...and i will continue to trust in You, Lord, in every circumstance...

  2. Melissa, your genuine honest blog entries are magnetic! I can't stop reading! God bless you for being willing, even welcoming whatever you need to experience, feel, or learn in order to get through this season of your life. I am in awe that you already see that there is beauty in suffering and I just know that even though you are an amazingly beautiful woman of God you will be even more so as you continue to just trust Jesus every moment of this journey! You truly are a great blessing and I can't help but remember you before God as I'm reminded of you.
