From A Little Black Journal…

I feel very much at peace right now. I am strong and beautiful, and I am well-supported by family and friends. This weather is wonderfully crisp, and I’m enjoying feeling myself grow daily. The fruits of my labor are lush indeed, and I am building my skills for when the next hard times come. I will not be defeated.

I am not defined by my actions. My value as a human alone is great, for I am the daughter of the King, my Jesus Christ, and nothing I could do could hinder that.

“From the ends of the earth I call to you,

I call as my heart grows faint.

Take me to the rock that is higher than I,

For you have been my refuge,

a strong tower against the foe.”

– Psalm 61: 2,3

It is true that I struggle with my faith in God, and my being an anxious and philosophical person doesn’t always help that. I will continue to flock to Him. I am currently reading a book about Mother Teresa, and I am fascinated by the fact that as sincere and giving as she was, she struggled with doubts and depression. How encouraging! I am inspired by Jesus’ person, even when my faith seems shallow.
