The Struggle Is Real

He is not letting you drown. He is letting you go through a metamorphosis of your own, a process.

Freedom From the Porch of Weakness

I hate that I am part of this disgusting scene. Most sickening is the realization I did not have to be here. A prisoner to my long-term weakness.

I suppose I’ve learned that life as a Christian doesn’t mean you won’t have pain or loss. It simply means that even when you’re drowning, it can be beautiful because you’re not alone. The other side of pain is always lovely. There is indeed joy in the morning.
