In my devotional a few days ago this statement really hit me. “I felt like I had been ground to dust, and those words started to put me back together.” Referring to a friend who had told Shauna it was OK to feel however she wanted about a situation, but she didn’t have to be embarrassed.
I have been this person. The person who needed to be “put back together” by someone’s words. Who needed to hear, that of all the emotions, embarrassment was not one that I needed to hold onto.
Sometimes we spend so much time listening to all the words tearing us down, we ignore the words meant to build us back up. Let the latter be louder!
