Yesterday was one of the days. Emotions were running high, CD 1 rolled around again & life was just dragging me down.
On most of those days I normally feel like I’m all alone, but yesterday was not one of them. I was walking in the house feeling a little defeated when my phone chimed. I looked & it was someone completely unfamiliar to me, no one I had met or knew of.
I opened her messaged standing on the porch & huge weight was lifted off my shoulders. Quite obviously unbeknownst to her I was having a down day. She had sent me a picture, that I didn’t even realize until I went back to read it again that it was actually from my blog, that said, “When you’re in a dark place, you sometimes tend to think you’ve been buried. Perhaps you been planted. Bloom”
Right in that moment, standing on the porch like a fool, I knew God was still in control. He knew I needed a gentle reminder to never doubt him. He wasn’t finished for the night either.
Later in evening I was chatting with another friend who, through simple conversation, encouraged me to never give up & reminded me even through the pauses there are still people thinking of us & wishing us nothing but the absolute best.
Then, as we were laying in bed getting ready to go to sleep, my phone dinged again. Anyone who knows me knows it’s incredibly rare that I ever actually have my ringer on. I opened the message to find a song I had never heard before called Trust in You. Tears rolled down my face as I listened & soaked in every word. The link is below.
I lay in bed thanking God for strategically placing people in my life. People who had no idea the kind of day I was having yesterday, but for whatever reason felt the need to be a light in my dingy day.
I lay in bed thanking God for never forsaking me & always carrying me at the moments I need it most.
I lay in bed thanking God for providing me with strangers who used my own words to remind me I am a warrior.
I lay in bed thanking God for protecting my emotions at the very moment they were about to break.
I lay in bed thanking God for providing the light in my darkness.
I lay in bed thanking God for reminding me that even though CD 1 rolled around that He has already told us we will be parents. On His timing, not ours.
I lay in bed thanking God for reminding me He is strong for me when I am at my weakest.
My positive friends & positive strangers lifted my spirits yesterday. If there is a time when you are thinking about someone, even if you don’t know why, let them know. For sure at that very moment is when they need it the most & they will be eternally grateful. I know I am. ❤️
