When Givers Collide

My hope is that you are a giver, and you are aligning yourself with other givers. No takers allowed.

This was sent to me by the man in my life at just the right moment. It was late at night, so he knew I would see it the next morning when I looked at my phone. It made my heart melt in a way which only he can do. The sweet timing of actions and words.

It can fit any relationship though.

The people we choose to have in our inner most circle should resemble watering cans. My daughter and I are very close, and on days that she feels weak, I am strong. This happens often, or when I feel weak, she is the strong one. On those days we care for one another a little more than normal. We give to the other what they may be lacking in that moment.

Be a giver, and surround yourself with the givers of this world. “I water you, you water me, we never drain each other, we just grow.” It’s like magic indeed.

On Waiting Well

The closing of a door.

When one closes, another opens. They close for a reason, and in due season. The difficult part, is leaving it shut. We touched on that in It’s a Start.

But, can a door change? Let’s say we close the door on a relationship. Can it make adjustments, and become a more appealing door? Putting space between you and the individual causes stress. We get to see how well the stressful situation is handled, but if they are solid within themselves, and their commitment, they will not falter. They wait well.

This happens when someone truly loves you.

“So, I’ll let you go. I’ll set you free. And when you see what you need to see; when you find you, come back to me.” Wait, and wait well, for all of you.

It’s a Start

New day. New Blog. New me. Same God.

To come upon a door that is stunningly beautiful requires walking through all it’s predecessors. What’s behind each door will bend us, but God won’t let us break.

Every door is a new beginning. It holds a start, a middle, and an end. The ending depends on time, and how much is needed. We can let the door shut, or wedge something in there before it closes completely. Some will slam shut, but there are tools for that! A hammer, and nails can reinforce it, making it difficult to reopen, but a crowbar can pry it open.

Lay the crowbar aside, rest, and wait for a new door. They become prettier with time, and it will speak to your heart. What’s on the other side serves as practice for what’s next; growing us in strength, and character. Stay the full journey; being mindful, brave and present. Be grateful, and your heart will feel it start to close giving you time to exit gracefully.

A door opened in May 2014 to begin writing at https://letitgocoach.com/ In May 2015, this domain name was established, and you can see God’s timeline in the About section. The past 3 years of writing came from walking through doors, and they were nothing like this beautiful one pictured above.

Someone gave me this door. (The picture) Her name is Sarah, and she is a beautiful soul sister within my journey. She sent this picture via Facebook, and wrote, “Because this is stunning just like you!” She had no idea about this new Blog. Bent Not Broken beholds a beautiful, new door, and it’s exciting to ponder what inside. Hello first post! It’s a start…
