Breathing and Speaking

Have you ever been hit so hard that the air was knocked out of you?  So hard that you couldn't speak, even if you wanted to?

I recently realized that this is what it seems life has done to me over the past weeks, months, and even year.

This place here has had great moments of silence.  Not that I intentionally designed it that way.  It just seemed to happen.  I would grab my computer and sit to write, and yet the words just wouldn't seem to come. 

It seemed it was all that I could do to muster the energy to breath.  To get to the next moment.  There was nothing left to speak. 

I recently shared about all of the changes in my life.  Those changes have had the potential to continue as things have been or to heal.

God appears to be using them to begin healing...

But then aren't we promised that God works all things together for good as we love Him?
"And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them." ~ Rom. 8:28 NLT

I sense things may be starting to change. 

I believe I'm catching my breath... and perhaps even beginning to rediscover my voice?...

    There really are seasons of life like that, and it is okay to step out of your routine for that time. May God continue to work healing and peace into your heart.
