I was editing a clients manuscript – a memoir about the beauty of overcoming. As I read the words and made the necessary changes, it sparked a joy in me about life. I was reassured once again that no matter what life throws at you, if our strength and anchor is in the right thing – God, we can overcome anything. Sometimes what we go through is painful, uncomfortable, odd, seemingly unnecessary and many other things. However because we only see the middle i.e where we are, we can never fully understand the context of the situation relative to the rest of our lives and the order of the universe.
I read these words by June Jordan ‘We are the ones we have been waiting for’. I was struck because we often wonder why we are living through certain moments. How different our lives would be if we fully understood we were uniquely created for this time!
