It wasn’t too long ago I found myself in a difficult position battling depression and a really bad case of burn out. Failure and defeat seemed like the only friends I had during that low point in my life. Professionally I was at a loss. Plus I was emotionally spent. There were times that I thought that life could just go on without me…. I can not put in words the emotions of great despair I felt.
Yesterday, while at work, I was described as a “ray of sunshine.” At first I was caught by surprise. When I was left alone to clean out the animal cages, emotions swelled and tears streamed down my face. God has carried me so far. He has put the sunshine into my soul. He has taken this broken, defeated, soul and turned me into a vessel full of His perfect love, joy and peace. I kept uttering, “If they only knew…..”
Words seem so futile to explain how I felt. Humbled. Elated. Thankful. Grateful. Blessed. Those are such tiny adjectives trying to paint the picture I felt yesterday. Life had thrown so many toils and snares that entangled my spirit. God pulled me out and here’s the good news…… He can do the same for you.
