MIA- (but not forever)
I know it has been quite a while since I posted here. Things have been very busy for my family. A lot has taken place over the past several months. You know how it is being a Military Spouse. The time falls close to choosing new orders. Then comes the planning and the moves.
Things have especially “interesting” for me. I have been battling my “demon/burden” in life -Depression! I don’t like to admit it (who really does) but the past couple of months have been really rough on me. But not to be all doom and gloom here- things are on the up and at ‘em and that is WONDERFUL!
Being a military spouse is no easy task and I will be the first to admit that I am no “superhuman/superwoman”, “can do it all” military spouse. None of us are. However, life must go on and we must press forward when times get “rough”. When things become “tough” we must remind ourselves that we have to “fight” and contend against the odds to keep our head above the water. (Philippians 3:13-14) I will gladly be the first to raise my hand and say, (although difficult to do at times) it can be done! We can rise above, we can make it through! There is a silver lining to every cloud and the Sun will shine again!
Although the past few month have been rough the true reality is that all of us at some time or another are going to face difficult challenges in life. The truth is that none of us are failures unless we give up and stop trying! Even if we have to continue to get up again and again, time after time. It is the getting up that keeps us on the road to success, it is the rising above that helps us endure in the long run, it is the perseverance even through the most difficult times that gives us the strength to continue on our journey. I hope to be an encouragement to those facing tough times. I know personally that it has been my faith in God that has pulled me through the most difficult days!
To those who may be struggling to get though another day, just remember to have hope, to keep pressing forward and know that- Tomorrow is a fresh new day with no mistakes in it. Don’t dwell on the past, or worry or’e the future and remember to live today like there is no tomorrow!
My hope is in the Lord! (Psalms 31:24)
