STRENGHT * COURAGE *KINDNESS are three words I chose as my guides for 2013 after writing down an inventory of ups and downs of the previous year. I used to be strong, I used to be courageous, and I’m always kind (at least try to be). Yesterday I woke up in the morning and stood up tall and proud again. I knew the day was going to be good and it was going to start an amazing year. In less than an hour I was showered with love and kindness (post coming up) from people I didn’t even know. People that genuinely opened their hearts and poured love my way.
I sat down quietly, my heart pounding with excitement and fears and said a prayer: God you know me the most. You know my heart. You know my strengths and you know my weaknesses. God I need strength. Strenght to stand tall every day, not just today. Strenght to welcome courage back in my life. Strenght to welcome everyone with a kind gesture no matter how hurtful their actions are. God I need you. I need you to help me find the strength I somehow lost. It was a short prayer but it felt so powerful, cleansing, and hopeful. I gently cleaned tears of my face. Looked at my wet hands. The tears were purifying. Verse ‘I can do everything through him who gives me strength’ Philippians 4:13 came to my mind. I reached out for my tea and read my morning quote: ‘Live in your strength’. I smiled. Are you talking to me God?
Today I would like to invite you to visit a blog written by a very talented Karrlin Bain. I’ve been reading her posts for a while now and always find an inspiration in her words. Just make sure you have a cup full of tea/coffee and are sitting in a cozy spot – you are about to spend a few hours indulging in Karrlin’s addictive words.
