In the darkness

In the darkness, I dream dreams

In my dreams, I see them

People laughing, people talking, people being people

My soul yearns to be one of them.

My soul thirsts for someone who can rescue me from this pit of loneliness and despair

Am I alive? Does anybody hear me?

Where are you, God? I thought You loved me, I though we were friends!

In the quietness, in a still small voice I barely heard Him say, “I am here.”

I had to listen hard, for the noise of the darkness around me was deafening , and it was hard to hear His voice over the clamoring.

But I heard it. Unmistakable yet barely audible.

Enough hope… to hold on for one more day?

I am a musician, an engineer, a mentor; my desire is to leave things better than I found them; I am a sister, daughter, wife, mother, aunt, friend. Suicide breaks my heart; Cancer breaks my heart; Human trafficking breaks my heart; Seeing people make bad life decisions breaks my heart. I am thankful for the One True and Living God who saved me from myself and, through His Son Jesus Christ, has saved from my sins; I am confidently persistent, passionately determined and boldly creative so that I may inspire others to live a life that ultimately matters.
