When all of life falls apart there is only one thing that keeps me going...
Where do you find it? Can it be artificially made or magically found... or is it linked closer to our existence than that.... to our soul?
When coming to a moment of utter despair, what do we do?
Crumble or fall to pieces.
Find strength or submit to weakness?
I VOTE STRENGTH, HOPE, JOY, and PURPOSE.
My only purpose is found in Christ. I will never be perfect, fulfill others expectations, fulfill my own, or find enough independent strength to carry me through the many trials of life.
Instead I find acceptance and comfort and purpose in God's love and sacrifice for me. He provides the comfort that I need. He holds me when I feel weak. He accepts me as I am, knowing all of the things that I hide. He provides free and fulfilling love, grace, and mercy.
When I feel alone, He is there.
Even when I still feel alone, think that I am alone, and have trouble putting my faith in Him... my inability to feel Him does not mean that He is not still ever-present.
If the only thing that is 'perfect' believes that I have value and purpose, then it is worth while to get to know that being. Be comforted by it, and find a greater sense of purpose and meaning with Him than I could find anywhere else.
journal entry by,
P.S. life has taken some turns lately.
Hence, blogging is in the back seat.
Since it is something that makes me
happy, I'm trying to take little steps
towards bringing it back into my life.
I hope you find peace, joy and love. xo
