I lost a piece of myself when my brain broke in 2014.
There I said it. And for the first time I can say it without shame. Without judgement. It’s not a curse, it’s just a fact of living with brain injury.
I’m not the same woman my husband married. I’m not the same person who gave birth to my daughter. I’m not the woman I’d always imagined I’d be.
And for the first time in 7 years, I’m okay with that.
Two things this week brought me to this place of peace and acceptance with my brokenness. The first was Operation Freedom Sweep with my dear friend Danika Deva. The second was today’s featured post, It Happened One Summer by Katie Dale.
She shares her story of when she “went crazy one summer.” In the most simple, matter-of-fact, non-judgemental, vulnerable, and beautiful way I’ve ever seen, she tells the world about the summer when she lost her sanity. When you read her story, you’ll see this is no exaggeration. It’s just what happened.
God gave her healing, not by a miracle, but through medicine. So now she walks in His healing by staying faithful to both Jesus and her medication every day.
So I’ll tell you what I’ve learned though Danika’s Operation Freedom Sweep (a post for another day), and by how Katie shares her story.
We all fall short of the glory of God. No one is righteous, not even one. But I’m no more broken than I was before disease took a piece of my brain away. Instead, I’m more complete than ever, because Jesus filled that piece of me with Himself one dark afternoon on Calvary.
Katie, thank you for what you do.I'm no more broken than I was before disease took a piece of my brain away. Instead, I'm more complete than ever, because Jesus filled that piece of me with Himself one dark afternoon on Calvary. Click To Tweet
