“And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out His love into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, whom He has given us”
What have you been holding on to in these times? What has been anchoring your heart? Does your heart feel anchored or is it drifting away?
I’ve just heard news of a suicide. This kind of bad news usually gets me more than most others. I always think, men, i can understand why a person would resort to this. “What’s the point of going on and pushing through if i’m always going to be pushing through? What’s the end of it? What’s the point if there’s nothing worth all this striving and hurting?”
While not very obvious, the pictures of me i’m sharing today remind me of hope and where mine is found. I took them on one of my first solo trips. I see myself as unsure as i was about the day ahead but deciding the thoughts in my head and feelings in my body would not stop me. I take a lot of personal pictures and videos on solo trips because i like to look back and see what an uncertain, timid and anxious Dami can achieve when she leans into the strength of God. If you know me in my natural state or in the past, you’ll understand why the things I achieve on solo trips are an absolute big deal. These memories remind me of hope and where mine is found. I am reminded why i can keep going when i feel anxious and defeated. Why i can’t afford to give up. Why i must push through when pushing through seems worthless.
I refuse to be robbed of a full eternity resting my head against the beating heart of my Creator. That’s my hope. Jesus Christ. His promise of this sort of eternity keeps my heart anchored. His promise to be my strength and guiding light reassures me. It reminds me I can’t afford to let my heart drift away.
Everything is hard right now. Mentally and emotionally things seem to leave a deeper imprint on us than in past times. It’s easy to give in to the anxiety and fear and uncertainty. But you can’t afford to. You just can’t. So i’m asking you again, what have you been holding on to in these times? What has been anchoring your heart? Is your heart anchored or is it drifting away?
Stay blessed and a blessing,
