As I journey into introspection..."When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are then challenged to change ourselves."

I asked God for the strength to face the adversities in my life—He supplied me with more adversities because I am not yet as strong as I can be.

I asked God for the courage to face the challenges in my life—He supplied me with more challenges because I am not yet as brave as I can be.

I asked God to give me the faith to always believe that He alone can save me—He gave me the wisdom to know that there are times when I must save myself.

I asked God to teach me the value of every moment and every breath—He called away those whom I have loved.

I asked God for someone to talk to—He sent me no one, so that I may learn to speak with Him.

I asked God to carry me through my hard times—He reminded me of where I’ve come from then showed me again where I am now.

I cried to God to please lift my burdens—He did not.
And I remembered that God will never put more on me than I can bear.

And so I rejoice—even in sorrow—because I know now that where there is darkness, there can be light.   

Psalms 46:1
God is my refuge and my strength, a very present help in the time of trouble.
