Dear Reader,  From The Heart

It just takes some time, little girl you’re in the middle of the ride

Dear Reader,

There are days when it seems like everything is irritating and nothing is changing like it should. It feels like standing still while everything and everyone around you is moving so quickly that you can’t even see anything except for blurs.

Add this to depression and anxiety and the end result isn’t pretty. It’s a jumble of fuzziness that clouds and darkens your outlook until you wonder what you are even doing anymore. You start wondering what your purpose is and if you even have one.

That’s where I got on my knees today. I was spiraling pretty rapidly, but my dear friend, the Holy Ghost, was right there with me to remind me that I’m not alone. He reminded me that I have a loving Father in Heaven who wanted and needed to hear from me today.

So, I prayed.

I didn’t receive any profound answer or a life-changing direction for where I need to go.

But I did receive comfort. It felt like God was saying “I know you’re hurting, and it’s okay.”

Sometimes we just need to feel validated and feel that someone out there knows what we are going though and cares.

If you are going through anything remotely similar to how I’ve been feeling, know that you are not alone. I’m here. God is ALWAYS here. We are not alone, Reader. It’s okay to be hurting. Things might not go the way we planned or even feel like they are moving at all, but that’s okay.

I take comfort in knowing that my God loves me enough to tell me everything is going to be okay. It’s something so simple, but it reached through and pulled me out of my spiral today.

We’re going to be okay.


***Note: As I finished typing that last sentence, I noticed that “The Middle” by Jimmy Eat World was playing on my Pandora. If that isn’t a sign that “Everything, everything will be just fine,” I don’t know what is.
