Contemplation

I’m always hoping to finish my writing, and it just doesn’t happen as quickly as I’d like. Each time that I complete a segment, I have to exhale after I hit publish. It’s like life was sucked straight from my soul, onto the page.

That sounds a little dramatic. What I mean is that some of the thoughts that I write are old, but some are NEW. I have to pause and absorb those thoughts myself, you know? I’m learning on this journey—with each new thought or discovery that comes along—that I have to be contemplative. Otherwise it’s just a bunch of gibberish!

In The Vertical Line, I mentioned that I find it hard to write my story sometimes because it feels like it’s all I, I, I and me, me, ME! So, I want to say something. Anything and EVERYTHING that is in my favor these days is God. My idea to share my story was not to talk about ME, it was to talk about what God has done for me. What I mean is; just like my passion for photography and writing… and now dreaming about dancing again…. all of it’s about God.

Maybe I should say it’s all BECAUSE of God.

I’m on this journey and discovering all of these new things because of my new thinking, which is a gift from Him. A gift that pulled me out of my old, destructive, and practically suicidal habits and thought patterns!

I wanted others to see what happens when you BELIEVE!

  1. I have been reading your story and following your blog for a while now. Never – NEVER – have I had the feeling that it is ‘all about you’ – the ‘I, I, I and me, me, ME!’. Never.
    You are sharing your story, that is it. And it is a heartbreaking but beautiful one. You have inspired me and I am sure you have inspired others.

    I struggle with this as well, but I think it is our duty as Christians to share our testimony.

    Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, “Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down, and they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death. Rev 12:10-11
