I'm aware that my passion for pursuing hope and faith in the midst of hard times can give the wrong impression. That maybe I don't know what it's like to wrestle, weep, and feel like the world is crushing in. Truth is, I know this too well. Depression, anxiety, PTSD, more.
Still, there is something deep inside of me that's been like a fire for as long as I can remember. Sometimes, I feel odd for having this kind of faith at a young age. I don't want others to think that I think I'm higher than them. I see God's highest and best for me and them.
Truth be told, I've been sensitive & hyper-aware my whole life. If it leads me to pride, please forgive me. If it leads me to act in insensitive ways, I hope those near to me will let me know. I want to grow and we can't grow unless we know.
I pray my sensitivity & awareness fuel courage for fiery faith while growing me in humility & honor for self, God, and others. All this to say, I love God and I love seeing people grow in faith through hard times. Not because it's easy, but because I know how hard it is
Some of the bravest and most amazing people I know are the ones digging into their hard story. They pursue God when they feel like giving up. The steps may be tiny or big, but they keep stepping. They face hard relational circumstances & the pain of personal growth.
They are fierce in heart even when they weep in bed, not knowing how to get up again. They've faced brutal attacks of the enemy & the effects of people's sinful choices. Deep down, they want to know God more and experience more of Him. This kind of courage lights up my soul.
If you feel shaky, scared, & is if your whole world is caving in, it's not. You're facing hard things. Even mega-hard. Your bigger God is with you & I'm cheering you on. You might feel unseen in your struggle, yet you let God work in those hidden places. Keep going.
