When these nights get long and nothing else makes sense, I just bow my head and pray for strength to stay grounded and not be pulled down by exhaustion and frustration. It takes a lot to still keep my head up these days. Forever grateful and thankful for the gift of life, grace and mercy. What am I without God? I have no strength of my own. The fact that you still see a smile on my face is his doing. He keeps guiding and protecting me. He has plans for me and I don’t fail to acknowledge the fact that these plans might not always be in line with my thoughts and wants. Yet, all I want is for him to take full control of my life and never let go. When every man fails me, I’m so thankful that I still have him to turn to.
So much has happened this year; taking time out to sit and consider the odds just weighs me down and drains me. I’ve decided to shake it all off and appreciate today and the future I still have. Nothing is impossible.
