God can still use me


I might feel like my life is broken and there is no hope for future happiness, but that doesn't mean my life is over. I might feel like I just want to lay down and die, but that doesn't mean I will. I might feel like my heart has been broken into a thousand pieces spread around the earth, but there is One who holds the earth and will pick them up, piece by piece, and, however painful it is, place them back together again. It will never be the same. But I will live.

I'm slowly working through it all and believe me, if I wasn't a Christian, I have no idea where I would be right now--ready to kill myself? Running away? The thought scares me. I'm so blessed to know my loving Creator and have so many amazing people in my life that will listen to me and understand me and not judge me and hate me.
i was a broken being, my heart scattered across the universe. i watched and wept, thinking that there was no way i could come back together again. that's when He reached down and picked them up and placed them together again. you can see the seams of the heart; it's fixed, but never the same. stronger? better? only time will tell.
 Thanks so much for standing by me through this time. My future always seems a little brighter when I think of you guys, and talking to you guys. You guys are my friends. You guys are my heroes. God's having you guys help piece together my heart. <3

God can still use me. God has a plan for me. I guess it takes something like what I'm going through to realize that whatever God's calling me to, whether it's missions or moving to a foreign country or living in somewhere I'd rather not, that that's what I'm going to do. It shows me that my life is totally His, now and forever more.

God's teaching me through the pain. Maybe He's trying to teach you something, too. Just remember that whatever happens, God's there. And I'm here, too. If you ever need to talk to me, ever want something on the prayer request list or anything, just tell me. I'd love to help you, and give you some of the peace that our Heavenly Father's given me.

  1. Thank you so much for this post, It really made me open my eyes and realize that I'm not alone in this world. Recently I've been so caught up in my own seemingly unmanageable problems that I had forgotten there are others out there fighting just as much (or more) than I am. I feel like a broken vessel, tremulously trying to pick myself up again. To hear that there are others, feeling the same way... It means more to me than I can say.
    Thank you again. Keep on fighting :)

  3. Many a time I have wondered where I would be if I wasn't a christian. And yeah, it's scary. Glad to have the life I do, even though I may be annoyed by it sometimes. God has a plan for me right where I am. (I'm basically telling this to myself by typing this)

  5. Thank you so much, Anna, for posting this. The Lord used it to gently remind me that when it is both hard and easy, I need to lean on Him. I'm not going through tough times like you, but that doesn't mean I don't need to go to Him for comfort, strength, and peace as well. Thank you so much, Anna.
    Continue to lean on Him; He will take care of you.
    I'm keeping you in my prayers...
    Love,
    Michaela
