2020 has been a challenging year for many of us so far — the year where we were suppose to have “perfect vision” has quickly turned into a year of great loss.
This may be true, however, 2020 isn’t over yet. We’re still in the thick of it.
During the pandemic, I had so much time to think. After all, we couldn't go anywhere being that most of us were quarantined to our homes.
I thought about all the things that I had been through in my life. I thought of the many trials that I had overcome. I thought about my losses and my gains. As looked back over my life. I understood so clearly why everything happened to me.
There was my perfect vision — everything made sense. And just like I gained clarity about my past in these last months, I know there will be a time when I look back at these moments and all this loss will make sense too.
As I experience more life, I will gain more clarity. In hindsight, it’s so easy to process your life because you have access to knowledge you didn't have in the past. You can reason better and see the full picture.
I share this to say…hold on. Things may be hard right now, you may feel like you're on the edge about to give up but this is not your time.
God is preparing you for something great and everything is going to be ok in the end.
Your story is being written as you read this and one day you will look back on it and be grateful that you kept going.
You are not alone in this my friend. Your vision is in tact — you are still connected to the most powerful source in the universe and your life is filled with so much beauty.
Your only job is to find those moments…to be grateful for the presence of your life. To feel completely and experience this life one breath at a time. To keep an open heart that is ready for love and joy.
Even if you can't see the full picture yet...one day you will.
You are here for a reason.
