For anyone struggling with seeing the light in the current world state, I want to encourage you that this WILL pass. And even through hard things, we will be stronger on the other side of it!

You can’t see the forest through the trees. Hindsight is 2020. Everything happens for a reason…. Have you heard any of these before?

We don’t have to know the future. We just have to know who holds it.
Even when NOTHING makes sense… even when it seems like it can’t get ANY worse… it WILL all be used for good.

I read a book once that said “do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”

With scrolling through Facebook, you know what I see? I see people saying, “wow, I will never take going to the library with my kids for the 800th time for granted.” And “man, I really need to put money in savings for emergencies,” and “maybe I should plant that garden I’ve been wanting to plant.”

Are these not GOOD fruit being produced from seemingly *bad* soil?

Good is there even when it’s being shadowed by fear and worry. You just have to peel back a layer and CHOOSE to see it. – Jeanna Hooper (HoopMama)
