365 Gratitude Project – Day 21: Faith

January 21, 2017

I’m grateful for my faith in a loving God with whom I have a personal relationship and share my daily walk. I’ve had to lean on Him a lot this last year and He is the only reason I’ve come through the darkness and am alive today. At the lowest nadir when I craved an ending to life and it’s pain He was there, gently holding me, quietly supporting me and steadfastly forbidding my departure. When I had no strength left He gave me His and I allowed myself to let go and fall into the protection of His sure embracing grace and peace. His strength granted me the time and space I needed to be able to grieve and give in to sorrow in safety. And He holds me still as I begin to learn to walk toward the light again.
