Light in the Darkness...

Some days are just harder than others. It is like a roller coaster that just doesn't stop and let you off. It is difficult to remember that "my" reality, what I see in the mirror, isn't actual reality. The darkness creeps in my mind and tells me that it IS reality, and all that is good around me falls to the waste side. My vision and focus is narrowed to that issue and the darkness grows darker and darker, and the light more and more dim. I rely so heavily on prayer to give me perspective in these situations. Prayers for perspective to see actual reality (not MY reality), prayers for peace and rest in my overactive mind, prayers for focus on what is truly important and prayers of thanks for how much my life is truly blessed. It is amazing that when I am able to step outside of my own mind for a minute and make a conscious effort to pray through the tough parts, that God really does come through. It always makes me think of one of my favorite verses. John 1:5 "The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it."
