Day 109 : Tumultuous

I'm no superwoman.

It can be hard sometimes. There are days I feel the weight of it all, leaving me sore. Or maybe there are days like this that trigger self-defeating thoughts.

Thoughts. Thoughts. Thoughts.

But of course, "this too shall pass".
But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed,but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. ( 2 Cor 4:7-9 )
It's a work in progress. This phase is obviously temporary, so stop focusing on it as if it were permanent. Everything can and will get better. Hey it's only mid 2014. Keep moving forward. There are a lot of things to look forward to in the coming years. One step at a time, one day at a time. The universe is working things around my favor. All of this will be worth it - every milestone; every hardship; every single year spent building the dream. There's always a time for everything - a time to plant, to toil, to wait, to reap. They say that the Lord gives the hardest battles to His strongest soldiers. Let this be my training ground for the strength. So it's okay to feel sad today, it's okay to feel the burden of challenges and problems that remind you of their existence once in a while. It's okay to admit weakness, and vulnerability. It's okay to say you're not okay today, because you know you will be, and that'll happen, and something that might just surprise you. The wind, can you feel that? How it kisses your skin, and it loosely brushes your hair away from your face. Close your eyes, and savor the moment. Let God embrace you through the wind - not seen but definitely felt.

Yes that's me talking to myself. May I now be excused.
