but she's on her way. And she's getting here as fast as she can.
-How I Met Your Mother
If you've been hurting, wondering and wandering...
This One's For YouSometimes your days are longer, your nights colder, your battles a bit tougher than you let on. And that's alright.
Some days it's hard to get up, it's a struggle to get out the door and it's a challenge to look and act normal when you're crumbling inside.
No one sees your tears. No one feels your pain. No one else knows your story except for a selected few you trust.
There are times when you feel like nothing good will ever happen as you lay in bed and dread to face yet again another harsh day, when you have to receive yet again words of discouragement and mockery from those who know nothing of your battle, when you have to again strive to find and hold on to battered hope. Another day drags on as you wait for your prayers to be answered.
The world can be cruel to someone different---someone like you.
I know there are days when you want to give up the fight. When you consider changing plans, when you want so much to abandon the path less traveled and walk with the rest of the crowd despite knowing what is right. At least, you think, "I'll be one of them, I won't be alone, I won't be talked about or laughed at."
"Maybe", you tell yourself, "it's less lonely if I walk with them." Not knowing that the world is actually more lost than you are.Yet here you are, still standing, stronger than you thought you were.
Yes, you may have stumbled. Yes, your knees may buckle from time to time. Yes, you may be wounded and bruised. But, here you are. I couldn't be prouder.
Hang on tighter. Hold your head higher. You are not alone.You have been chosen to do a much difficult task because you have shown exemplary strength and courage. Because you're set apart. Because you're one of the best.
This road to the unknown, this could be rather fun and exciting if you just shut your ears from the cruel world and focus on the Voice of Truth, telling you how beautiful and loved you truly are.
I know it's hard to believe this right now, but trust that there's something special and beautiful and magnificent waiting for you if you just keep walking. Something you haven't read or seen anywhere else. Something beyond your comprehension, exceeding your wildest imagination.
Don't walk with your head bowed low in defeat. Look up and see the beauty around.
I tell you, that's nothing compared to what is waiting for you. In time you'll see. And you'll thank Me.
I trust you. Please trust Me.
Walking with you until the end,
