How beautifully you are learning to come alive in this space,

How beautifully

you are learning

to come alive

in this space,

even without knowing

how certain things

will fall place.

Even while you are wondering

what tomorrow has in store,

you have learned

to see the lessons

in opening and closing doors,

for in all of this you have learned

what it means to be courageous

is not about arriving somewhere,

but about the journey

you have been invited to.

And through all that you have been through

May you know today is calling you

to step forward into the Light,

with all the strength

you have gathered.

For even when you do not feel

as strong as you once

thought you would be,

you are still being prepared

for what is beyond what you see.

So even here, even in now,

in the wild of your uncertainty,

you are free to believe that all of this

is a part of a grace-filled story.

This is your life.

This is your journey.

But it is not a lonely path.

It is filled with Light and grace,

and the kind of hope that last.

Even on the most uphill and winding bend

where you are worried and wondering

if you will soon reach your end,

your eyes may be tired,

and your feet all-too heavy,

but all by grace,

even here,

your soul will be steady,

and moment into moment,

there will be strength to carry on.

So carry on with all you have,

even though you do not know tomorrow yet.

For today you are only being strengthened

for tomorrow’s greater depths.

And it it is okay if there are times

where you do not feel as strong,

and it is not strange to sit with thoughts

of where and if you will belong,

for even there, in that place,

Light is guiding you all along.

And no matter what you find

in the days or years to come,

as long as there are mornings,

there will be a faithfully rising sun,

reminding you it is okay

to pause and take things in,

finding an ever-growing strength

to wake up and start again.
