Before the Dawn…

It’s always darkest before the dawn…

No duh, right. It’s true for many reasons, but one reason I will touch on metaphorically. In our lives we are going to face many trials, challenges, disappointments, and setbacks. Those times and in the very hours of their occurring will be so dark and ominous. It may seem like there is no way out. It may seem like there is no resolve. It may seem like there is no hope. The reality is that there is an out, resolve and most of all hope, you just have to keep moving forward. The darkness represents the down times. The dawn is the birth of new opportunities and breakthroughs.

The month of July, though not over, represents a very interesting juncture in my journey. A year ago this month I moved back to Georgia with a lot of anticipation. Today I am wondering what’s next and if I truly am accepting of the direction. There have been a number of disappointments this month and it definitely seems dark, but…

…there is tomorrow. Tomorrow the sun will rise and God willing, I will be there to greet the day and continue to be part of the awesome plan already in motion.

Discouraged? Yes. Disappointed? Absolutely. Defeated? Never, I’m on the winning team and we already won…just watching the recaps before the after party.
