Wow……the creative juices are flowing everywhere today as I am listening to a certain song, looking back over my life, and searching for lost things!!! Ahhhh yea….lost time, dreams, missed opportunities, loss of self esteem, loss of respect, loss of loved ones, etc. Then I looked and contemplated all of the overwhelming challenges, the storms, the fire, etc. One thing I can say is that I am overwhelmed as I see the incredible ability that God gives me to reach down within myself and realize that I have not lost my will to move ahead. I still have my trust, even though I have had to look deep down within myself and find that trust and that awesome love that I still have for God no matter what. With this, I know that I have not lost my praise even though I have lost so many other things.
Even when I was broken, misused, disrespected, unappreciated, and the like……and even when I said within my mind that I was done, through with it all…..nope, just couldn’t stop believing that the misplaced peace and discomfort will NEVER cause me to give up on my destiny. Even though on this road to destiny there are so many road blocks and detours, I refuse to believe that God has given up on me.
So I will keep going and I am writing this to encourage someone right now. Not looking for sympathy or a pity party. Just want to reach out and encourage someone who is going through. To the soul that is sunken down low, the broken heart, the one that can’t seem to catch a break…..just find a way within yourself to love and trust God no matter what. Grab a scripture, a song, a sermon, whatever it takes and hold on! Your change is coming after while.
