Some days I’m tired – tired of trying to make up for the past and all of its mistakes.
Some days I’m overwhelmed – overwhelmed by all that it takes to simply live, to simply survive.
Some days I’m sad – saddened by what I’ve thrown away, what I’ll never have.
Some days I’m weak – so weak that it’s all I can do to get out of bed.
Most days I’m ashamed –
ashamed that I don’t have it all together,
ashamed because I know I need to get it together,
ashamed because I don’t know how to pull it together.
As it turns out, I’m human.
In this life, there are going to be seasons when the SMILES seem far away. There are going to be times when darkness seems to overcome, drowning out even the smallest ray of light. There are going to be moments that grab us so tightly that all of our hopes seem to fall lifeless in each crushing grip.
These times are merely seasons, moments that may stay awhile but that also leave just as quickly as they come.
Seasons of doubt give way to seasons of hope.
Seasons of trouble transition into seasons of peace.
Seasons of despair and sadness are replaced with seasons of Joy.
We are promised that it comes with each new morning and if we look hard enough, I know we’ll see morning’s light peeking through!
