I’m being

Hopeful this year

I hope, more will become great moments for me.

And that I will live up to the standards that have been put out before me and those to come.

The feeling that this is not a repeat of anything I’ve ever experienced.

Before and so far and so the shift in my life has begun.

And where it will lead me is so unknown that I just keep walking because it feels right.

I can feel the light growing inside of me and the darkness is growing so small.

As I smile it grows so weak and tries to hide but I won’t lose this battle and it must go.

So I think about everything that makes me happy and whom I love and all I see for miles is the light in me shining so brightly.

And that is how it will be for now as long as I trust you, my lord, I will continue to win.

I feel

 as the cold wraps around me that I’ve been lucky this whole time.

For things could be worse but somehow even the things that should be sucking the life out of me.

It is more of a blessing for it makes me realize even though I am stuck in this storm.

There is a way out and if I just wait it will come to me and there is no point in feeling sorry for myself.

For this is only the beginning and there is always time for a miracle to happen and wipe away the bad of my day or my year.

Trying to

 Find that spark that made me feel so alive that words would just flow from me and all things big and small won’t that bad.

But doubt settles in for the winter and all seem lost again.

But I won’t lose faith as I see the bigger picture after this season that is not that great.

For I hope the next season will be so much better and the warmth will fill me up inside that the coldness outside will barely bother me these days.

 by the pain and frustration

That I don’t see the change that is happening around me.

You see I’ve been in the dark with just a flashlight of light and when that window of light shined down on me.

I didn’t notice something had awakened in me.

For it felt no different than the Tuesday before.

But, somehow the energy I was feeling felt so pure and powerful.

It wasn’t until I saw his eyes what I had been trying to see in my owns.

The look was light itself shining back at me with no darkness around and as he stepped cross to me.

I swear I saw an angel in Him and what to come next was nothing short of a miracle.

Is always someone looking out for you because they don’t want you to be stuck like them.

They know how it feels to be stuck in the sand.

To be walking on thin ice.

To be in a situation that doesn’t look like there is a solution to the problem.

Or at least not one you are going to like or willing to do.

They know that you are trying but they want you to speed up the progress so that you can escape to a more affordable place.

Not just cost wise but time and energy and know that this is what you could see yourself doing for the rest of your life.

That the things that happen today.

Are not going to bleed into tomorrow is sometimes easier to hope about.

These moments before you have to go back to being the other person you become once you walk out that door.

Is only temporary and when you come back that person fades away until next time.

You try with all your might to not let both worlds become one for you know there is more anger and drama in one and not much going on in the other.

To have peace and to have understanding with all the people you deal with is nice from time to time.

For your hope to become more than what you thought was possible feels amazing and not a burden either for once feels so good you hope this feeling doesn’t ever go away.

In this

Moment I had this feeling of overcoming everything that was holding me back.

No more feeling of how much more can I take before o break.

The truth is they broke me a long time go and now nothing feels the same.

Until, today when all that hard work that played off and all the stress that came with it was lifted off my shoulder.

My breathing was calmer and my body was no longer tense.

My life was in my hands again and this time I knew I was going to become strong again.

Am I

only as great as you make me lord.

I don’t tend to stick out for I am not sure I’m ready for all the attention lord.

I like the peace of not being someone everyone is looking too for answers and when everything is not calm.

To be thankful that you always here for me and when I feel like too much is being pushed on me your always there to take some of the burden off of me.

Putting you first is the best thing I can do in my life for you guide the way for me and when I come to you everything seems less stressful than if I relay only on myself.

Today will be a great day because you will be by my side every step of the way and I know nothing that will or can happen is too much for us to handle together.

My mind is clear and I take this time to just enjoy the little things in life that you have blessed me with and everything else will come when the time is right.

To you I say thanks for today is possible because of you.
