Journey of Graceby Wednesday Grace Adopted just days after birth, Wednesday struggles to find her place and her purpose in this crazy world. Trying to prove that she was not a mistake…
Wednesday’s PlacePlace to find beauty in the middle of the mess. Place to find joy instead of sadness. Place to find hope out of the darkness. I would like this verse to be what Wednesday’s Place represents.
… and provide for those who grieve in Zion— to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the LORD for the display of His splendor. Isaiah 61:3 NIV
Why did I write Wednesday’s Place?
By sharing our pains and struggles we learn that we are not alone. When we open up and share, it brings light into our darkness, our pain. My hope is through sharing my story, one might see how hate can only destroy and forgiveness brings healing.
Who is Wednesday Grace?I have learned that I am a child of God. I am loved. I am not a mistake. During a really dark time in my life, I tightly, held on to Isaiah 54. Through these verses I felt like God was talking straight to me. I was afraid. I felt like a mistake, shameful, a disgrace. I had felt abandoned, a wife deserted. I felt like God was mad at me, but I did not understand what I had done wrong; I tried so hard to be perfect but failed. This verse gave me hope in my darkness.
“Do not be afraid; you will not suffer shame. Do not fear disgrace; you will not be humiliated. You will forget the shame of your youth and remember no more the reproach of your widowhood. For your Maker is your husband– the LORD Almighty is his name– the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer; he is called the God of all the earth. The LORD will call you back as if you were a wife deserted and distressed in spirit– a wife who married young, only to be rejected,” says your God. “For a brief moment I abandoned you, but with deep compassion I will bring you back. In a surge of anger I hid my face from you for a moment, but with everlasting kindness I will have compassion on you,” says the LORD your Redeemer. “To me this is like the days of Noah, when I swore that the waters of Noah would never again cover the earth. So now I have sworn not to be angry with you, never to rebuke you again. Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed,” says the LORD, who has compassion on you. Isaiah 54:4-10 NIV
Why do I speak?I have a deep compassion for the brokenhearted. I can relate to their pain. I want to help others heal, to find hope. Our words are powerful. I want to use my words to bring love. To shine a light on the darkness, the lies that can hold us captive.
