Me too



The most powerful thing that anyone has ever said to me over this past year...

It hasn't been a scripture verse, even though I love being reminded of scriptures to give me hope. 

It hasn't been someone telling me to keep trying, even though many days I have needed that encouragement. 

It hasn't been the many times people have told me how strong they think I am, even though those words have given  me the courage to keep moving forward.

It hasn't been someone telling me they were praying for me, even though I appreciate those prayers more than I could ever say. 

The most powerful think that anyone has said to me over this past year is simply, me too.

I hurt too.

I mess up too.

I fail too.

I doubt too.

Because sometimes we spend so much time trying to find exactly the right words to say, when all that person needs to hear is for us to say, me too. 

The crazy thing is, this is exactly why God sent his son to earth, to live and experience the same pain and struggles that we experience so that you don't have to pray to a God who simply sits on a throne. You have a God who can say me too! 

Hebrews 4:15 " For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weakness, but one who was tempted as we are, but without sin." 

He experienced temptation, and rejection, and fear, and pain, and so many of the things that we experience every day, so that He can say to you me too...

Don't be afraid to tell someone else that you share in their pain. Don't be afraid to say me too. It might be the most simple thing you could say to make the biggest impact in someone's life.

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.
