She was home

A perpetual gloom engulfed her soul. Lost in a storm that seemed to go on for 1000 days, but in reality had only been a few. Time slows, crawls by. Like being stuck in quicksand, the more she fought it, the deeper she sank. She felt as if she had no home, no place she belonged. She didn’t know why, what caused her to feel this way. After having reached out to A friend she remembered home is a feeling, not a place. That the battle she was fighting within herself was a lesson being taught to her by the almighty. God was teaching her something she needed to learn so that she may emerge from the darkness enlightened. Having gained a new perspective that she would carry with her the rest of her days. She told herself that this lesson is a blessing, trying to convince herself. But with enough time, and reflection she would truly believe this. For God gives his toughest battles to his strongest soldiers, and my was she ever strong. Stronger than she knew, the things she had been through in her life would’ve crippled and broken most, but not her. She perservered, overcame and grew in every way possible. After all, pain is just growth in disguise. As the old adage goes that what doesn’t kill you only makes you stronger, well by now….by now she remembered. She was strong, she was a fighter, the storm she was in now seemed to pail in comparison to the storms she had already weathered. Then a smile crept on to her face as she realized these things. The night is always darkest just before the dawn…and she would, as she had always done, fight through the darkness and bask in the radiant light as if she was seeing for the first time. Having grown, became enlightened and gaining a new perspective she embraced the light again and continued to carry it with her wherever she went, sharing it with the world. It was this light, the light that emanated from her soul, that was home, she took it with her everywhere.
