“imprisonment. // to say the least- i’ve definitely attacked the last few months with an abundance of positivity, cup half full kinda vibes all the time. but if i’m being honest, all the same, i’ve felt an overwhelming abundance of loneliness and fear. the last few months felt almost like i was in a prison cell labeled “anxiety” with no escape and the walls are just getting closer and closer together, trapping me, imprisoning me in a way. you get the picture. i’ve felt alone. i’ve felt trapped. i’ve felt isolated. broken. but!! although my feelings and circumstances said one thing, my God said another. the enemy has tried to label me broken, unwanted, unloved and unimportant. he has said that i’m worthless and he wants me to sit in these feelings. but my God has already labeled me created, loved, forgiven, and purposed. even when i don’t have voices here to constantly remind me of these truths, they’re still relevant. and super apparent. they’re still there. still true. truth doesn’t change, even when i do. the evidence is still there. His glory is still present even in my suffering. God is slowly showing me to delight in that truth. His truth. i will no longer entertain thoughts of the world. i will no longer believe words God didn’t say. i will set my heart and mind on things above. i’m learning to delight in things of the Lord. love, forgiveness, purpose, mercy, compassion, grace, kindness, beauty and much more, have saved my life. God has refocused me. and determined me to live a life devoted to the One. the ONLY ONE. and- what a wonderful God He is. // thanks for the constant prayers and encouragement. it means more than you know.” Joe Dalrymple
