#faithactivated | What doesn’t kill you only makes you stronger

courage-quote-blog

For every failure I had encountered in my life, through each experience, I gained courage.  What didn’t kill me only made me stronger. I did not allow it to crush me (though many times I had come close to giving up).

It is possible to emerge from even the darkest hell healed and restored. You just have to believe. Activate that faith no matter how small.

I Never Left

i thot. i’d never see the day.
the day. the sun. turned blue.
the clouds. dark.
and the heavens. began to weep.
lightning. coursing through the sky.
shocking the earth to reality.
the roar of the thunder. screaming. deafening. almost… almost. as if. in pain.

fear. gripping. loneliness. aching. helpless. hopeless. darkness.

just when it seemed like the world was coming to an end.
bleakness. dead. stillness. quietness.

Suddenly!
the sky opens. first a trickle of light.

spreading. touching. feeling. soothing. warmth spread like joy. peace.

the earth still. scared. not knowing. huddled.
afraid. afraid to embrace. to look. to experience.

then it came.
the still. soft. silent. voice. saying. softly embracing. smiling.
I’m still here.
I never left.

and how it shall be, after it has been…

DEPRESSION!

Hollow.
Desolation.
Dark hole.
Sadness.
missing someone?

Something?

going somewhere?

Somehow?

longing for.what.when.where. … I don’t know

 

friends?
Family?
fulfillment?
WHAT…
Love?
Life?
WHY…
