Fri, Aug. 31 – Write a letter to someone who believed in you even when you didn’t believe in yourself.



Dear Wick;

After so many years of belief and study and relationship with God, the one thing that still surprises me about Him is… He doesn’t see me through the trappings of time. He sees all of me — the me I was when I was four years old; the me I am as I write this; the me that I will be when I am your age. In His heart, I am not merely the things that have happened to me or the choices I’ve made; I am the woman He is crafting into His image. He doesn’t merely see the me who needs to be crafted, He sees the me I am becoming as He crafts me.

It is a special love — a supernatural love that allows us to see others similarly, to see in faith what an individual can be and will be rather than simply seeing what that individual is dealing with at one moment in her life.

You have always been that person.

When all I could see of my life was the pain and the dysfunction and the fear and the sorrow… you saw something more. Somehow, I think, you have always known that I would be okay. I don’t know how you knew, but you did… and you never gave up on me.

Happy AWACing!

From the shores of Wicket Lake,
