JOURNALING (hidden behind photo): My journey to Faith has been well-traveled. I was a born-again Christian in my teen years but as a young adult, I succumbed to a variety of negative forces. I searched for answers throughout my adult years and the more I searched, the angrier I became. I turned my back on God for the longest time and refused to even acknowledge His existence.
It has only been within the past couple of weeks that my journey has come full circle. I felt I was at a point where I couldnít fall much lower. I was angry. I was tired. I was putting distance between myself and my family. I was scared. I was hurting . . . . and I was hurting others. So, out of sheer desperation, my knees hit the floor and I prayed. I prayed and sobbed and begged for His forgiveness.
For the first time in years, I felt instantly better. Now, Iím not saying that this whole thing was an overnight sensation. There are still so many unanswered questions that I have and so many things that still donít make sense to me. Every day is a struggle with a new lesson learned but my heart isnít heavy anymore. I have Someone to talk to when I feel like no one else listens. I am able to see the subtle signs when I need them most that serve as a reminder of my Faith and how every path Iíve chosen has led me to where I am now.
I am thankful for everything I have, everything I am and every person in my life. I still have some bad days where I stumble and fall but I always know how fortunate I am because I was able to find my way Home again . . . Home to my Faith.
