In my life I have been through things that have caused me to feel like there was no hope. I have been let down, put away and pushed aside knowing the one thing the keeps me going on my journey of life is definitely my faith and the joy that God has blessed me with. People often say they love that whenever they see me I always have a smile on my face and they know that things might not be going right in my life, but I don't let that completely get me down. I tell them that I smile because I have joy that was a gift and it's something I don't want anyone to take from me. Joy is that component that makes your light shine brighter than anything in your world. So as I make my daydream a reality and walk into dark places I let the light within me shine and the light He gives me be a light for my path, walking by faith and not by sight. I take my light on the journey I call my life wherever I go no matter the situation because I know it's the only thing that will guide me through. I sometimes go off course, but I know going forward the the light will bring me back on track.
I named this post prelude to a journey because every good story and song has a great preset explaining the journey your mind is going to take part in. So where do you go in your days? In the hustle and bustle where does your light take you and who does it shine on? Do you ever feel like you don't matter and no one is impacted by the good you do? I would say never underestimate the light you carry inside of you, for it can help brighten someone else's life and although you might not be on the same path you can help them find their way to move forward. Your impact may be small and everyone might not see it, but it will help the person that needs it the most so secure those walking shoes and keep going.
