This morning I chose to rise up with a smile on face because today is all we got!
When I went to bed last night, my nerves were a wreck. I felt like I couldn’t take as deep of a breath as I needed to take. I switched from being hot to cold, sad to happy, and in the end, depressed. I tried hard to hold myself together, but I felt like I was losing a good fight. So closed my eyes and just prayed. It was an intimate conversation between my God and me.
He gave me what I needed so that I could get through the night. I felt his presence with me all night. I felt like a 5-year old that had just had a traumatic experience and needed to be in the arms of her father—a father with strong hands and broad shoulders that make you feel safe. Like when you are here, no-one can touch you and harm you.
I slept like a baby, and when I woke up, I felt like sunshine. When I rose up, I didn’t need to open my blinds and feel the warm air hitting against my skin. I didn’t need to smell fresh life as I lifted up my window— waking up was enough. I was enough!
I haven’t felt like this in quite some time. I slowly feel me coming back. I don’t know what tomorrow will hold, and for the first time, I don’t care. The only thing that I’m concerned about is today. This moment is mine, and I’m grateful for that.
No matter who you are or what may be heavy on your spirit, I pray that you just get up. Find peace because when you find peace, hope and joy are around the corner.
So get up because today is all we got!
