In the past, I've been able to identify that the framework of my heavenly father was largely based on my father who had severe anger issues. But I haven't had much success in actually rebuilding it. Up until recently, I haven't really allowed people to help me out either, namely of fear of being judged and hurt again.

And a lot of times, unfortunately, that will happen. But if you can find a community that will never think lesser of you regardless of what you lay out into the open, never let them go. When me and my cohorts chatted for the first time years ago, my teacher sensed some deep pain within me simply from revealing some basic information about myself. I knew I was in the right place when he stopped all the questions and offered to pray for me. And Miami was exactly where I needed to be as many of these people who I got to know so well helped sort out the deepest shrapnel I had left in my heart. Of course I wasn't taking care of myself. I felt like junk. I was convinced I was junk. I kept believing in Satan's lies instead of who God says I am.

At some point, I was given a list of things I am as a follower of Jesus. I've made it a point to re-read them at least once a day. My brain must have registered these verses hundreds of times before they started making their way into my heart. That's how you rebuild the framework of your heavenly father, and that's how you prepare for what the Lord really has in store for you.
