The following are words for those who battle a mental disorder such as depression, anxiety, or another darkness. This is me reminding you that you’re not abnormal, you’re not inferior, and your life is incredibly meaningful.
We were created immortal…Eternity echoes in our hearts…Don’t we all long to be more than mere creatures made of dust? Don’t we all burn to change the world?
I’m sitting here thinking about my dreams…Thinking about what’s hoped for and what could be. I’m dreaming of books to be written, friends to be made, experiences to be enjoyed, and hope to be shared with others.
Time has a strange way of reminding us that we’re broken, that we are in a fallen world, and that we need God. Time reminds us that we have an eternal soul thirsty for the Eternal.
What does an honest life look like?…Maybe that’s why I wanted to be an actor, because it comes so easily to me. I’ve heard it said that I wear my heart on my sleeve, but deep down inside I know that’s not always true. I want to be applauded, so I hide behind appearances, talent, titles, and associations as I wear a broken smile and bow for the invisible audience.
We’re all striving. But outside of all the external striving in our daily lives, we also need to strive for rest when we’re weary and worn down. We need to strive for help when we’re hurting. We need to strive for truth when all we hear are lies. We need to strive to bring hope to the hurting world around us.
