Wrecking Ball

I came in like a wrecking ball
Yeah, I just closed my eyes and swung
Left me crashing in a blazing fall
All you ever did was wreck me
Yeah, you, you wreck me

"Their minds are full of darkness; they wandered far from the life God gives because they closed their minds and hardened their hearts against him." Ephesians 4:18

We seem to live in a world where building up walls to protect ourselves is far too common. 

People give away their bodies, but not their hearts. 

They listen to the words, but they don't believe. 

And they leave, before anyone has the chance to walk out on them.

They give up before they fail. 

 We are so afraid of falling to pieces, that we refuse to fall at all. 

Can I let you in on a secret?

You are no as breakable as you think.

You will survive. 

But by building up walls and closing off your heart you will never know how strong you really are.

They say it is better to have loved and lost than to never have loved at all. And I think its true...

Because even love that isn't returned shows you the capacity to which you are able to give and love and cherish. A broken heart proves just how much you can take.

Don't build up walls. Don't harden your heart. 

Because even if you fail miserably, you tried. 

"We are not nearly as fragile as we think we are, but we will act as we believe ourselves to be. We have the capacity to be astoundingly extraordinary, not just in spite of where we have been, but because of it..."

The failures and heartache and the pain are all part of making you into the person you were created to be. 

Guard your heart, but never build up walls that forbid you to feel. 

Love is a risk. Loving anyone or anything has the potential to leave you broken. 

Love anyway. 

"To fear love is to fear life. And those who fear live are already three parts dead"

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.
