Get your Sparkle Back!

The Little Girls We Were are Coming Back to us!

By: Kimberly Dimick

In the "Hope for Survivors" series

God wants each of you to know that He is not done and this is not the end, but the beginning of a new beginning. New beginnings come in increments or steps.

The most treacherous part of our journey in the Lord is allowing His kind and good hand to first cut away the dead places, people and even self-preservation we all wrestle with.

When our worlds are turned upside down, it takes time to face our new reality and regain or be restored to WHO we are in Jesus, in the midst of that new reality. It is easy to lose our bearings.

Our compass, who is our Father, is ever true to direct us to the place where we can embrace His new life for us and find the girl we once knew come to life from underneath the ashes and ruins!

God is lifting many out of the rubble and turning those ashes into beauty. Light shines into the dark places and those that were hidden away are in His spotlight of love!!

I believe that the former things give way to a better way. Our former selves with dreams and hopes, filled with awe and wonder at Jesus and the promise of a bright tomorrow may have taken a few twists and turns, but in the end God wants to take this and make it even more wonderful than before.

In the past, we remember how full of life and promise we were, hope bursting at the seams, but now we have learned that the darkness could not keep us entombed forever and we are resurrected in ways that are more meaningful, purposeful and FULL of LIFE than we could ever have dreamed.

We have learned what is truth and the more important virtues of the Lord engraved upon our spirits.

You will SPARKLE again with an illumination that is arrayed not only in outward beauty but an inward beauty that does not fade or can be stolen.

You are shining princesses and you WILL SPARKLE for Jesus, in ways that are true, pure and everything and BEYOND our LORD purposed for each of you!!

The word for virtuous or being a woman of excellence means in the Hebrew to be a woman of strength, might, efficiency, wealth, like an army. It also means to to dance and to twirl and even as one having experienced deep anguish and travail.

The little girls we once were are coming back to us, stronger than before!

You will dance. You are stronger, you are warrior princesses!!!

Kimberly Dimick and her husband, Joshua Dimick, know how it feels to lose everything: marriage and family, church and reputation, finances and careers, and so much more. Together and separately they have walked the path of Love, a narrow path, a path that is lonely and not well-used.

They intimately understand the soul-shattering pain of separation and divorce and they also know "The Way Home" to a life of choosing unconditional love. The surprising answers to a happy marriage are shared in their posts, articles, and a book-in-progress.

As you venture on this journey with Kimberly and Josh you will experience how God shines His most brilliant light in their darkest hours. Today their mission is to provide a voice to women suffering in silence, shining the Light of Truth into the dark places of marital and spiritual abuse.

I like this very much.  Warrior princesses.  Yes, that is what we need to become.  If we can just begin to think of ourselves in this way I believe our actions will follow.  Thank you for sharing this.
