The sign

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own insight. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.”
Proverbs 3:5-6

2 - Reflect
I had waited a long time for something to take my sorrows away, to lift me up off the ground, to give me a new breath. I walked aimlessly, without hope, waiting for everything to vanish. As if it had never happened, I wanted to wake up from a long sleep, from a pain so deep that it did not even allow me to leave my home. On some days of total darkness, a friend came to me and told me that I could return to the Church, that I would always be welcome there. I flatly refused and almost forced him from my home. Stubbornness and loneliness were already a habit of mine and I believed that nothing nor nobody could move me from that position.



When I did not know what else to do to get past that bad time, I began to meditate every night. Each moment became unique, talking with God the Father, in my own time, my own way. Trying to see beyond my fears, my suffering, I was preparing to speak to our Heavenly Father in a way that I had never done before. Sincerely, opening my heart, I let myself fall in Him, I let Him hold me in His hands, and little by little guided me towards my daily light.
