I have been hearing those words in my heart lately. Every time I look over at his empty couch or side of the bed. Every time I eat dinner alone and come home to an empty house. Ever time I go to an event or spend a holiday by myself. Every time I have to make a decision by myself that I’d rather make with him. Every time I can’t get in touch with him or we have to go weeks without contact. I hear those words every time my heart aches for him.
They give me so much encouragement. I did not realize it at first but realize now that they are a promise from God, They don’t promise that this time apart will be over soon or that we’ll never have to do this again. But just being reminded that it won’t always be like this, brings a sense of peace and gives me strength. After 7 months apart, sometimes it does start to feel like this is how its always going to be, but thats not true. Not by a long stretch. And these words confirm it.
I am so grateful for His quite whisper in my heart.
