I am so thankful that today is finally here, it’s been a long time coming and it’s been one hell of a journey, hasn’t it? How many times did I shove you away in frustration? Or let my own drama get in the way of your story? No matter what, you were always there, patiently waiting for me when I returned. You were always so full of reminders of God’s promises, reminders that His word does not return void.
Six years is a long time to incubate, and I pray that on this day, your character shines the way it always has in my imagination. I pray that your wrestle with the Father and with man speaks to others who may be in similar situations, and that your strength encourages them to keep moving forward no matter how big those steps may seem to be. I pray that those you encounter today and in the days to come will love you and let you stay in their hearts and minds as you have stayed in mine. The Father was so gentle with your story and I think that’s something many of us need to see. That He is not vengeful with His children, He is gentle, loving, and patient.
I honestly had my doubts that today would ever come. There was a time in my darkest season where I thought you and I were done for, but oh how thankful I am for His grace and salvation, and that we both got to experience those things in mighty ways. Your story may be fiction, but at the end of the day, it’s real life, and it’s true words from the Father’s heart to His kids. His promises never fail, and He promises to never leave, nor forsake.
Thank you for sticking with me for all these years!
Happy book-birth-day, my dear.
