You didn't know you could be this strong

A year ago, you didn’t know you could be this strong. You didn’t know that all along, courage was rising up within you. Back then, it just seemed like you were trying to make it through. It just felt like you were trying to survive when all of the odds were stacked against you. You didn’t realize that every late night you fought through and every early morning you woke up to was a beautiful Light-woven reminder that you were far from finished yet. It did not feel like it then, but the seeds you were sowing were being watered. What seemed like it was only rain was actually the nourishment you needed to grow into the next stage.

Strength might not feel like strength in the moment, but the beautiful thing is, you still have moments like this to reflect, and remember just how far you have come. You have moments like this to finally acknowledge that you didn’t just “make it through.” Strength was rising up within you.

Sincerely,

it is okay if your strength looks a little different in this season.

I hope you know it is okay if your strength looks a little different in this season. I hope you know that the fire inside of you is still there, even if it burns quietly, and gently, as candles do on windowsills. I hope you know that it is okay to not feel the same and to notice all of the things that have changed, because all of this, absolutely all of this is very real. I hope you also know that even in the rush of it all, there is time and grace to heal. There is time to take your time here, seeking peace beyond  understanding, even if you do not feel you are all the way there yet. Breath after breath, depth into depth, the steps that you take not only matter, but they reveal the quiet strength that has been in you all along, and has been growing ever since. — Morgan Harper Nichols

even though you had to wait, you were not lost.

Season into season,

more things will be revealed to you.

More things will unfold

before your eyes

and you will be grateful

they did not come too early,

but they came in their time.

You will see in days to come

that even though you had to wait,

you were not lost.

You were being strengthened

as you were being guided

right where you needed to be.
