rend your heart, not your garments.

realizing more things than i can name about selfishness and fears that motivate everything i do. realizing how much i've done in the name of love that was really motivated by hatred and resentment, underpinned by pride.

forget the former things, do not dwell on the past
see, i am doing a new thing!
now it springs up, do you not percieve it?
i am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland.

this is a new brokenness that is freeing me in places that i was resigned to bondage. i am most broken over the idol i made of myself and the precious things i offered at that alter.

hey my brave girl...press on. God is doing such great things in your life right now, and it blesses me to no end to see you bear up patiently under His correction. He has much he wants to do in your life--death is only the beginning!
