So I was in survival mode for so long that the focus was on bare minimum to maintain and not go backwards. Now we are adding things to thrive and serve and enjoy life again and this is very exciting. So to you who are in survival mode, there is hope on the other end of it. I know, I am living it. And the great thing about making it through horrible times is that you know God will walk you out of it. It is beautiful to have the chance to endure all you can, break, surrender to God and allow Him to rebuild your life even richer, maybe slower paced but definitely better and wiser.
