The “talk” has been had. And my husband amazed me.
One thing I have come away with for this is that he was more upset that I’ve endured this burden alone. He was concerned and disheartened that I underestimated him and had not come to him sooner to share our situation – and worse, made myself sick in the process of holding this like a secret hell for a couple of months.
God. Is. Amazing. I was not going to tell my husband until tomorrow but I felt the strong pressure from Him to lay it down tonight. So I listened and I did. And I am so relieved that I haven’t been able to stop crying for an hour now. As I type the tears are falling.
I feel lifted and free from my self inflicted chains. I’ve prayed and prayed and prayed in thanks to the Lord for this mercy and grace. I know I can step into this forward walking His path now and not mine.
It goes to show, if you’re enduring something you think is monumental and impossible alone, you don’t have to. Don’t underestimate those that love you to support and hold you up. Most of all know, He alone will hold you up when you are at your lowest low, if you trust Him to do so.
Don’t endure alone.
