Let The Light In

 

Friends, have you ever been in a season of life that just seemed so dark you felt it would last forever? I sure have. Actually, I believe in our lives we, unfortunately, face many seasons of life that feel this way. Each day that passes, you question if you even remember what the sunshine looks like at all.

One of the darkest times in my life was when I was having uncontrollable brain hemorrhages. I was in and out of the hospital and felt like everything was out of my control. We were praying for the brain bleeds to stop and it seemed as though God was silent with each additional bleeding. We would later discover He was moving in BIG ways and was not silent, but had better plans for me than I could ever imagine! In the meantime, the dark thoughts consumed every square inch of my mind. I was severely depressed and even contemplated ending my life just to stop the pain.
But then by the grace of God, I found a second wind of strength, and clarity was draped over me. What could I control in this situation? This was when I realized one of the most paramount ways of thinking that transformed my life forever:
We cannot control what happens to us, but we can control how we react to it!
 I chose to find the good in my situation even if it was hard to find at times. I encourage you to do the same in all the dark moments you may find in life. You have the power to pull back those drapes and open the window. You have the power to find the light amidst the darkness. You have the power to be Head Strong!
