My heart got shattered a couple of months back and its outstanding how until now when I thought I’ve dealt with it and have mourned over it, it still hurts a little. It aches still remembering that loss. Its surprising though that lots of time I still see myself pick up the tiniest pieces of my shattered heart from everywhere. Its like this heart bomb exploded within me and just obliterated my soul and spirit into microscopic particles that traveled all over the world. Yup, I found pieces too scattered all across Europe and Russia. Amazing how I keep finding them everywhere. I still tear up of course but I would say that Its not as bad anymore. I can settle my fears and doubts. It ate me up because with that little something that I had, I prayed to God that he will make it into my everything. But you know what? God reminded me last night at church that

He made everything from nothing. (John 1)

He is God after all and he reminded me last night that he don’t need nobody to help Him out in the things he will create in my life. Not even me.

The bible clearly illustrates that in the beginning there was the Word. And the Word was God. (John 1)

He was. He is. And from himself He created something.

It was funny I guess to God when he sees us make our little somethings into our everything. I guess it was a lesson to be learned in my part that He wants me to look to Him instead. To remember that this something was not my everything. That this something is not needed to enable God to give me my everything. And what He did? He got it out of the way. HAHAHAH Ain’t my God something.  (Catch up homie, it ain’t over yet. *Wink)

 Now faith is the assurance (title deed, confirmation) of things hoped for (divinely guaranteed), and the evidence of things not seen [the conviction of their reality—faith comprehends as fact what cannot be experienced by the physical senses].  For by this [kind of] faith the[a]men of old gained [divine] approval. By faith [that is, with an inherent trust and enduring confidence in the power, wisdom and goodness of God] we understand that the worlds (universe, ages) were framed and created [formed, put in order, and equipped for their intended purpose] by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things which are visible. Hebrews 11:1-3

He is building my faith I believe. And well lets just say there’s nothing else to anchor my hopes to than to this promise because, If He is God He will be faithful.

And the LORD said, “That’s right, and it means that I am watching, and I will certainly carry out all my plans.” Jeremiah 1:12

If He says He will, then He will. I’ve realized through this season in my life, I made God small. And with Him taking that something out of my hands, he’s teaching me that he has the power to take back but replenish me up to the brim and even to the point of overflow. God is unchanging and remembering that He has gotten me out of so much shizzz, I know He got this.
