Wow Tracey! This is so powerful. And I’ve got to say, I TOTALLY GET what you’re saying about turning to people instead of turning to God. That was the central confession of my first book, Love Idol.
I’m glad you’re still here. I’m glad you are in the group. I’m glad you’re seeking happiness, even in the hard. Your story doesn’t have to look the same as my story. I only have my story to bring to the opening pages of the book, and I know that can be frustrating for people whose story is different, but my story is all I’ve got. But my main hope is that people will be able to see GOD’S story intersecting all of our stories — no matter where we are at, no matter our happiness set points, no matter our circumstances, no matter our peace or lack thereof, no matter our worries, no matter our pasts. God is offering the same invitation to all of us, and I find that truth so freeing and full of so much potential.
I can’t tell you how happy I am to see you in the comments, for stepping out bravely with all of your fears and hurts, and letting us walk with you. You are a treasure, dear heart.
