Finding hope in the darkness

Have you ever been in a situation where you thought it was going to break you? Where you were almost convinced that it was going to be the end for you? Perhaps it was so bad that you felt like you couldn’t see a way out? You were so broken that you couldn’t even explain the state of your emotions..

If that was you or that is currently you, I tottally understand where you are! You are not alone.

I did not have the right words to interpret how I felt. I just wanted to lay somewhere and cry my eyes out. I did not want to speak to anyone, I just wanted to eat junk and lay in bed. It was so bad, ya’ll.

I began to ponder back and forth on how these things began to happen to me. I was all in my head, thinking about everything and how I end up where I was. In the midst of this storm, I had so much responsibilities sitting on my plate for me to take care of. I scanned through everything and laid on the floor of my bedroom asking God for the strength that I needed to move forward.

I knew that there was a supernatural strength that had to come from God that I could not supply on my own. So I took my bible, prayer shawl and wept before the Lord. I had nothing left to give and I was ready to receive from the Lord. In the midst of this, I was thinking of my role of leadership to others and how my future generation was possibly going to be affected if I was to remain in this dark place.

I literary took one day at a time, leaning on to God. And by the time I looked back, a whole month had gone by. I couldn’t believe my eyes! God had to literally shift my focus. And guess what? In the midst of it, I was able to successfully launch my podcast where I pour into people who are so eager to uncover their identity, get closer to God and truly enjoy their success.

I share this with you to tell you: Do yourself a favor and give yourself time to grow. Allow your growth to grow. You can hit rock bottom, but you don’t have to stay there. There is more to life and I promise you that this too shall pass.
