Over the past year, I have been going through different phases of my life and I have been finding them interesting, tiring, adventurous, etc. some of them I understood and some of them I am still trying to get a grasp on. In all sincerity, inasmuch as I would love a large portion of the phases I am going through to go away, I would not trade it for anything… Ironic, I know but I guess that is how life could be.
Recently, I was talking to my friend’s dad whom I consider a great man in his sphere of influence. I was sharing with him what I have been going through and how sometimes I wish it could all go away. He talked to me and encouraged me. He told me how it’s okay to have dreams and sometimes it may seem like they are not coming to fruition but at the same time, I should just hold onto them and walk (work) along the path that is required of me and I will see it come to pass.
He said a lot of things that steadied my heart and He then quoted a Psalm I had heard just once in my life from Psalms 61:1-2.
