What if all the dreaded things that happened to me are the pathway to my Soul salvation? If I never felt pain, would I ever reach for grace? If I never had darkness, would I ever seek the light? Sought through prayer and meditation….If my heart had never been broken, would I have done all this inner work to experience healthy love? If my spirit had never been broken, would I ever go seeking healing? As I think of all the roads I have taken to heal from trauma, and all the people I’ve met, all the groups I’ve sat in, all the meetings I’ve attended and all the church services I’ve sat through, I count it all joy!

Today I count it all joy! Joy down deep in my Soul, down deep in my Soul….
