💞 2.0 Strength is found in many places, and strength is a demonstration of growth. We can find strength in community, in stillness, in quiet and pain, we can find strength even in our weakest & useless times. And we find purpose in the moments of confusion and worthlessness, otherwise we give up. I'm really proud to say I'm a Christian, not because oh-hey I'm a Christian and it gets me attention, but because I continue to discover things, things about myself and friends and my spiritual morning walk with Jesus. Actually on one such morning walk I found this guy aka the photo. But I honestly can't say a to. Over social media besides this: giving up isn't easy nor is it hard, but independence, independence-especially for me- is hard to let go of. Because I want to do it all on my own. So when I become vulnerable and weak-when I give up being independent and forcefully become dependent on someone, I find strength and clarity. •
• the reason I'm putting this on here is because I usually stray away from uncomfortable and rather (I'll admit it sounds like) attention seeking posts. The kind that is personal-like actually up close kinda personal and I just wanted to put it out there as an attempt to reach out maybe and a encourage even one.
Over fifty hours now.
That is why I am going on a fast. Whether you fast from people, activities, or food (the last, I'm doing) if you do it right (which I hope I am 😬😬) you'll find those things which you don't usually discover because you're distracted by comfort, routine and easy circles (all things I try to get out of when I can). Prayer, community prayer is something power and I encourage you to do it. 😊😊
ALSO:: reaching out-to those closest to oh and those you barely speak to makes a difference. Don't be afraid to encourage. •
