I’m lost. Somewhere deep in this dank cave. My eyes have tried in vain to adjust to the consuming darkness. I can’t do this. The cold stone takes my blood offering without my consent. This will be where I die.
How did I end up here?
I closed my eyes and leaned against the jagged shale, the constant drip of distant water lulls me into apathy. Maybe oblivion wouldn’t be so bad.
Now I hear whispers echo against these prison walls. Funny how the mind tries one last time to bring you hope when you know it’s useless.
But, wait. Those are real whispers. But, they’re not whispers! Someone’s shouting! Someone’s calling my name!
Could it be? Could I be saved?
“Here!” I yell, but my voice is cracked and weak. Oh please, please hear me!
A light hit my eyes.
Oh, the pain. The beautiful pain of the light. The pain of hope. They’ve found me. They’ve found me.
It’s been a couple of weeks since my last post. I apologize for that, but I’m back again!
Just a small, quick, story and a video to start your week off right. Sometimes I do feel trapped and lost within the dark caves of my mind, but I am thankful that the love of my family and the grace of God find me every time and lead me out of the darkness and into the light of day.
I tell you this, because I know many of us feel as lost inside the caves of our minds. And, I know that it seems all hope is lost and we’ve resigned ourselves to lay against the rock. Let this song and this post be the whispers you hear calling you back to hope, and to let you know you are wonderfully made and worthy of the love of the God of all creation.
You are loved.
