Wrap me in Your arms

God is our refuge and strength an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear though the earth be removed...

Ever felt like the world was literally crashing down around you?
 
Something happens and suddenly nothing is the way it used to be.
 
Something like the man you were sure you were gonna marry decides not to love you anymore.
 
Or you make a terrible mistake and you can never take it back.
 
Or maybe the doctor told you or your loved one news that is simply unbearable. 
 
Its like your world starts to fall apart, starting with your heart.
 
I don't cry often, but last Thursday was an exception.
 
Because you see all the "God has it under control" and "just have faith" cliches don't really mean a whole lot when its your situation.
 
This is MY life... and MY heartache...
 
There is a God who loves me, who wraps me in His arms...
 
Because you see, no one has the perfect words to fix it.
 
No one can say anything I don't already know.
 
I have faith.
 
I know God is control.
 
I trust that He will give me the strength I need to endure any situation that comes my way...
 
It still sucks.
 
The most amazing thing is, is that we have a God who knows exactly how we feel.
 
He experienced what it felt like to be alone and hopeless and afraid.
 
And he knows that some days there are no words that will bring comfort to our hearts.
 
That's why we have a God who will simply wrap us in his arms.
 
I believe God can speak to us, in a variety of ways.
 
But I believe He knows that many times words aren't what we need.
 
When we are afraid or hurt or even broken beyond repair, He is holding you.
 
You don't have to be strong.
 
You don't have to have it all together.
 
Its OK to cry and be angry.
 
And its OK if you don't cry as well.
 
Because however you need to deal, know you aren't alone.
 
Know that there is a God who is passionately and irrevocably in love with you.
 
And on days when your heart is torn, he will be right there to help you pick up the pieces.

What is Paigerific? I’m glad you asked, although I don’t have an exact definition to offer. Paigerific is my thoughts and my heart. Paigerific is my passion and my fear. Paigerific is my success and my failures. Paigerific is my blood, sweat, and tears. Paigerific is more than just simply word. It’s a million different words all rolled into one. Words like hope, grace, determination, imperfection, love, faith, insecurity… The one word I would use to describe myself? I am Paigerific.
