This past week has been a rough one, and this week isn’t looking any easier. I’m not going to get into it, so, let’s just say that I am getting a crash course in faith. I’m learning about fear and inadequacy and all that junk like never before. You know, being pushed out of your comfort zone is hard! Stretching and growing hurts! There really is no other way to explain it.
As I was about to sit down and have myself a fancy little meltdown yesterday, I noticed a quote stuck on the corner of my inspiration board in my office.
“I will go forward… I will smile at the rage of the tempest and ride fearlessly and triumphantly across the boisterous ocean of circumstance… and the testimony of Jesus’ will light up a lamp that will guide my vision through the portals of immortality.”~Eliza Snow
I will go forward. I will smile at my tempest and ride fearlessly and triumphantly into the sea that has been placed before me. Because I know that my Savior lives and that He is mindful of little old me. I know that He will comfort me, lead me, and carry me along the way. And, I know that there is purpose in all things. If I stayed in my own little shiny yellow box all my life, I’d never become who the Lord knows I can be. You see, this awkward little magpie desperately wants to become a swan. And, I can’t unless I grow.
I’m sure some day I will laugh, too.
