Yup, I'm sure there are a lot of you who are or have gone through breakups. And it is not easy which I'm sure you are aware. Along with all the other projects, I'm also working on an ibook devotional for girls on the topic of heartbreak and dealing with breakups. It is going to be geared towards high school to college age. I am very excited about it.
I really feel like this is something God wants me to create. When we were given the assignment, I remembered my friend created a devo for the project and I thought that would be awesome to do. And the topic of it just instantly popped in my head. Breakups. I prayed that if this is something that God wants me to do then please guide me through the whole project. When I began the layout of what to include in it things were just coming to my mind so easily. I really believe that God was guiding me through the whole thing.
I am going through a breakup right now and I've had my ups and downs...And I am still trying to move forward. Creating this devo is almost like therapy for me. When I created the thumbnails for the devo I just sat back and thought about how God really does care about me and how much his love is relentless and consistent.
Today, as I was drawing the final pencils, I was looking at the cover I was creating and I just felt at peace. The day before and this morning I was feeling sad and upset because I was thinking about my past relationship that ended seven months ago. But after I finished the cover I just thought about the image and I just felt at peace.
The hands are suppose to be God's hands. Inside his cupped hands is a little broken heart that was once broken but is now bandaged so it can heal. What better place to heal a broken heart then in the hands of God?
I just thought to myself, as I struggled earlier this morning to focus, God really has my heart in his hands. He is taking care of me and he knows my heartbreak. And it's only through God that I am able to be healed. It made me think about how God has been placing people in my life that have been such an encouragement and a blessing through it all. And after that moment of thought, I felt so much better.
And this song has been giving me so much peace. Or I should say...God has been reminding me of his perfect peace through this song
