Saturday short and stout
Originally written Jan 2013
Starbucks on a Saturday morning. For studying? What was I thinking ?
In the hustle and bustle of the be-seen-but-don’t-see circles. amidst busy -life -passing- by, the bright spot is seated right next door.
The table adjacent boasts two lovely women heads together, voices low discussing the very.raw.truth. One lovely perhaps mid sixties. The other mid twenties.
The conversation is raw . the conversation is real.
I want to reach over and hug this Brave young woman . To say well done Girlie for taking your life into your hands now. Setting strong boundaries for your life, future and now. Well done,
The younger truthfully shares how stupid she feels for believing a man she trusted , again. And again he “led her on”, played games with her emotions–and heart– broke that trust in cruel , deceitful ways.
She will experience Freedom Now because she is seeking help Now. Sharing the struggles with someone Godly. Now. Someone discerning enough to say ‘this is not ok’. His behavior is destructive, obsessive. But what if…Because she wants to believe ..him…because .she wants to affirm…him… She wants to be enough…. for him.
I so want to hug them both to whisper “you will never be enough to a ‘him’ but are so much more than that to ‘TheONEHIM’ .”
The simple words in the note I press into her trembling hands as I silently , momentarily pause…”You ARE enough.”
Today. Saturday 2++ years past & a lifetime of lessons. That season and door closed. Double Bolted. Painful lessons learned my self. In Obedience to TheOneHim that matters.
The Best of which…I am more than Enough.
And so are you.
