When I look back on my life, or even just the past couple of years, I can truly say that I am incredibly blessed. That doesn’t mean that everything’s been peachy and sunny. If I spoke frankly, this chapter in my life has been the most challenging and sorrowful of all… I experienced depression, failure, disappointment, fear, doubt, insecurity… you name it. More or less, I probably disguised it with silence, a smile and the phrase “I’m okay,” so it wasn’t too obvious to a lot of people. But despite of all that ugliness and negativity, God always worked behind the scenes, revealing His fingerprints in places and situations that I didn’t take notice of. I am still struggling day by day, but He continues to hold my hand tight or wrap me in His arms or simply tell me how much He loves me and cares for me… and when I focus my eyes on the One who understands and knows me the most, everything I’m scared of or anything that tries to tear me down fades away. There is nothing as beautiful as that.
