We fix our problems by forgetting that they’re problems and reminding ourselves that they’re actually gifts.
I’m grateful for the tough stuff in relationships, as it is often these very relationships that are helping us to grow into the person God designed us to be, and ultimately preparing us for a life in heaven.
I used to be scared of tears. I thought tears meant weakness, an inability to deal with life’s hardships. But one cannot know the supreme value of tears until he has cried his weight in them. It is then that we realize their beauty, strength, and power. Tears are a gift from God. The healing shower to our soul.
These days I cry at the drop of a hat. There’s no shame in my tears. Crying is a beautiful thing. Where there are tears, there is love.
