Nothing is a coincidence, everything has perfect timing, like discovering this song by creatives @orphannomore
With the intention of wanting to learn a couple of their other tunes that have been on repeat, apparently this is the one I needed to sing over myself. You see, there are battles fought publicly & then there are battles that we fight within. A constant warfare for freedom which has been paid for, to be our unique self, that can sometimes be left undiscovered for years or sadly, within a persons lifetime. I have felt like an EPIC failure. I have felt consumed by the struggle & then felt completely frustrated at myself, over & OVER again. I've been exhausted & tired to the point I feel dishonoring because joy seems impossible to display when one has allowed distraction to keep me from being focused. I can't deny that I have wanted to run & hide, so I can just catch my breath, just for a minute or a year or more, and return when I feel I'm ready. The thing is, in all these years gone by to this point, I've realised I can keep running, but I'm going to keep coming back to places I've been before until I learn the lesson. I feel like a slow learning student & seeing as I'm being real, I absolutely HATE it! This is where people say, "don't be hard on yourself".... But give me time, I'm still learning that in many areas of my life. So here's what I know is truth...† There is nowhere I can run & hide, where I won't be found. † God knows the plans He has for me. † He WILL finish what He started — however long that takes (the quicker, the better for everyone!). † God IS my stronghold!! 2018 was an interesting year. Towards the end it got real rough & I'm still working through stuff. It's important to remember that we're all a work in progress until our time is up. Take each day as it comes & when your mind starts to get dark, press on, reflecting on the things you thought would be impossible for you. When you're in a season of pruning, (which can feel like a complete renovation of your life & heart) just think on the beauty that is to come once your winter is over. Remember, it's important to maintain regularly, clean your house — take care of your heart!
