If you didn’t already know or hear, the past 6 months have been the most difficult days of my life. I have not experienced heartbreak, depression, and difficulties in the whole of my life like I have these past few months. Despite how much I have been through, I have been carried through by my faith in Jesus and allowed Him to speak to my heart daily. In all honesty, as difficult as it has been, I know that if I had not gone through the fire, I would not be as close to Christ as I am now. So, although I would never wish to endure the hardships and the heartbreak, I do appreciate what it has done to strengthen my faith and what it revealed about my life, my priorities and my lack of spiritual leadership.
I had a few dark nights of dealing with anger and depression over my circumstances, I heard a story of another family going through an even more difficult hardship. It drove me to sit down and write, which is something I do from time to time. I wrote this poem type thing. Not sure what to call it, but after I wrote it, I realized this was something I felt the need to share with others who may find themselves facing difficult circumstances. So my hope is that this encourages you somehow. I have to be honest that I am not a social person. I don’t like to put intimate thoughts out for others to read and judge. I have always been that way. It is a fear I am trying to overcome because I realize that although I am extremely critical of myself, the embarrassment or silliness I feel should not come before the possibility that my words could encourage and help someone else. So here it is, “The Dark Road”. Let me know what you think. I am considering doing more video content.
