If I speak, let it be in love.
If I listen, let it be in humility.
If I rejoice, let it be in gratitude.
If I suffer, let it be in faith.
I’m drinking an Amaretto Sour (heavy on Ameretto, light on sour) and watching For Colored Girls.
Tonight is going to be one of those nights.
When my old foe, Depression, attempts to pull me into the dark abyss of self-pity and hopelessness this is the Bible verse I cling to:
He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death, or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away. (Revelation 21:4)
I’m sharing this for all those with tears, pain, and heartache.
Pray, persist, and prepare for a time when all this will be a forgotten memory.
I love colors.
I especially love rainbows.
Rainbows are representation of the sacred covenant between God and His creation. (Genesis 9:13)
My prayer is that I never forget who rocked these colors first- and why.
I’ve been in an emotional slump. Not full blown depression, but still. When life strikes a blow at my happiness, I want to react. I want to act. Fight or flight. Something!
So I prayed.
And the Lord sends the same reply, “Wait.” Be patient.
I feel life is passing me by and all I want to do is catch up.
