We were met with uncertainty and a certain newness that can evoke fear.
2 Years Ago Today…
We were masked and told to be brave during troubling times.
2 Years Ago Today…Armed with God, I wrote this:
“Trying to remain hopeful and know that positive things are coming. Change may cause us all grief but the biggest growths have come from the ability to accept the things we can’t change and the wisdom to know the difference. I would say then that the goal here is not just survive. But to thrive! Learn from what life has to offer. Take this time to become more one with yourself and at the same time learn through others in how they are allowing (or not allowing) controversy and sickness to ruin their lives. God is good. ALL the time! He will prevail indefinitely. The story has already been written. Rejoice! And count your blessings. Lean on one another but more so-put your trust in Him. God will protect and comfort you. God bless!”
2 Years Ago And Today…
I take a look at myself, and thank God, again, for new beginnings.
Feeling broken became so familiar to me that at one point, it became my friend. And once that happened, my life began to change.
Instead of bent and broken I became jointed and liberated, Instead of fearful and weak I became strong and fearless, Instead of focusing on bad experiences and things out of my control, I became valued and renewed.
My experiences, once painful, were now the experiences I could use to help others. And that’s what it’s all about—Service. It’s truly all about perspectives I guess…and when you no longer fear the pain, it serves you, and that’s so powerful. That’s healing.
“God loves me so much. He comes for me again and again. So that I can be the best person that I can be. So that I can be free. He loves us all this much. And sometimes it is only through despair…that we find our greatest gifts.”
