Stronger


It takes faith. It will get better. You are doing great! This is not the end. God won’t give you more than you can handle.

Any of that sound familiar? I have heard it all and all too much. Life hurts. But life is happy and joyous with excitement and blessings. Life has so many corners and different paths to take. I have to wonder how I ended up here and you ended up there.

For me it comes down to one word. Strong. It doesnt seem to matter what is thrown at my path, I will make it through. I dont know how when I’m going through the thick of it all and I dont understand it when i look back on the walk. What I do know is that somehow, time and again, I prevail. Through the pain, through the hurt, through the tears and through the devastation.

I have found out how strong I am and just when I think I have made it, I find yet another canyon that has to be crawled through. I am grateful that I was given spirit for life. I am so proud of all that has been accomplished in my life, yet at the same time,  I desperately want to be at a place of peace and rest. I want to enjoy the fruits of my labor and see smiling faces with laughter as the centerpiece.

I get that I am strong. I am glad that I am strong. I have needed this strength my entire life and I doubt that will change. But I yearn for the day of rest. For me, I was given a gift and a curse. I have survived and I will continue to survive. But sometimes strength is the last thing I want to need.
