You are not alone.
You will hear the voice that keeps you moving forward.
“And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever.”
Jesus came back to life to give us life and to give us strength and hope. He sent us a gift. The Comforter is the Holy Spirit. The Comforter restores joy through the healing process. Courage grows through the healing process. Healing begins when we have finished our time of mourning. It begins with adequate applications of time, moment by moment, step by step. Our suffering will slowly transform back into strength over time.
We may have aches and painful memories of the past. We may even have the knowledge of what has already been lost to us in our future because a difficult situation that has surrounded us. Our hearts may still be sore from the tears and our bodies delicate from the long journey. But once you have stared your greatest fear in the face and outlasted it, your focus becomes sharper, your purpose becomes clearer, your motives become purer, your words more honest, your love more grand, your awareness of the moment deeper, your appreciation for concepts like honor, dignity, and orderliness increase significantly.
The problems and situations that once struck your imagination with terror now have converted to opportunities to bless and heal others.
We, as a people, can bring significant beneficial change. We can respond to our world with answers and hope.
This quest for excellence in our craft can no longer be driven by pursuit of personal achievement, accolades or ego but by devotion to the idea that our life and purpose can help improve the quality of life of those around us.
Someone once helped me. Let me help you. This is my prayer for you all.
Know that God is good.
Lastly, through all that life has in store for us, whether good or bad, God is there for you.
You are not alone.
