I could not have said it better myself! Thanks to Holley Gerth's blog, I know I'm not alone.
She posted today:
"The reason why I write the way I do is because I need to hear it too.
Because sometimes I forget I’m loved.
Some nights it’s hard to wait for dawn.
Some moments I struggle to be strong.
I write what I need to remember. Words are the trail markers I leave on the journey of life so I can say, “Oh, yes, I’ve passed this way before. Now I know how to move past this place again.”
I’ve struggled with depression.
I was once diagnosed with social anxiety.
I’ve walked the valleys.
It’s not where I live now. But I’ve been there. And sometimes I go back.
Don’t we all?
I forget to tell you that sometimes–to say that if you ever get the idea I have it all together that you shouldn’t believe it. That I sweat and cry the ugly cry and have dust bunnies and bad hair days and I whine and I sometimes completely forget that I’m already amazing.
I write to find my way home.
I write to reconnect with Love.
I write to know I’m not alone. And because of you, I’m not.
Thanks for sharing the journey with me. In case you didn’t know, I appreciate you even more than words can convey. I’m glad we’re in this together.
Just as we are.
And not yet all we will be.
Our best is still ahead."
Goodness! It sounds just like what I wrote yesterday...in some ways. God is funny...the way He works is always surprising me and making me shake my head in awe....and then I smile, laugh, and say to myself, "I should have known He'd answer me!"
God is GOOD.
