Clipped Wings Can Grow Again.

Broken Voices

Behold, I make all things new. It is only the earthbound spirit that cannot soar. Every blessing I send you, every joy, every freedom achieved from poverty and worry will loosen a strand that ties you to earth.

It is only those strands that bind you. Therefore your freedom will mean your rising into the realm of Joy and Appreciation.

Clipped wings can grow again. Broken voices regain a strength and beauty unknown before. Your power to help other lives will soon bring its delight, even when, at first, the help to yourselves may seem too late to bring you Joy.

Worn-out and tired as you may seem, and pain-weary, I say unto you, "Behold, I make all things new." That promise shall be fulfilled. Tenderly across the years, yet tenderly close and near to your tired noise-weary ears, I speak to you, My loved ones, today.

"Come unto Me all ye that labor and are heavy-laden and I will give you rest."

Old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. 2 Corinthians 5:17

That was exactly what I needed to hear yesterday! Things are moving in the right direction for me in terms of my mental health. Thank God. I am moving out of the fog and am choosing to defend myself. My energy is starting to be focused on fighting to retake my like. I'm using this surging energy, riveted attention to take on the challenge of rebuilding my life.

My x-boyfriend may be using another woman to avoid these feelings but I wont do that. I am going to do it without using another man to make me feel good. I will learn to feel good first. It's still hard to believe this is all happening at once, and it's still hard to believe he is sleeping with another woman so soon. But I either accept reality or I can continue to fight it and stay in a bad place.

My focus now is to get better mentally, get back to my priority as a mother so I can play and care for my son like I normally do, and to get things organized to move in the next few days (or month).
