Reaching for the light // I’ve learned early on in my life that no matter how hard we try, we will always have times in our lives where we find ourselves in dark places. I’m currently in the darkest place I’ve ever been in, and it’s a constant battle for me to remind myself that it doesn’t end here. It’s in these darkest places and in these darkest moments that we are challenged the most; Causing us to learn the most, grow the most, and change the most…and by God’s grace, these dark places can transform into beautiful things. This is currently my deepest prayer and heart’s desire. Let the ruins come to life, in the beauty of Your name.
The LORD will fight for you; You need only to be still. // Exodus 14:14
This discipline is so difficult, and I find myself more often than not battling myself to just be still. It’s such a beautiful thing to know that no matter how long a process takes us, He is still waiting for us. He never pressures us to complete something, but instead He is always faithful to complete the work that He began in us. He is faithful even when we wander. He is so beautifully patient. He is kind. Lately, I’ve been challenging myself to complete surrender and learning to be still in the Father’s perfect love….learning how to trust in His perfect way. It’s so much easier said than done.
