31 days of reflection {day 7} Deep in Thought

SILENCE2020I saw this quote tonight and it took my breath away! “Go to where the silence is, and say something” . . that is a powerful quote; one that has a thousand meanings to me right now.

Silence is often something that overcomes us, but what if we overcome the silence and “say something”.

Fear stops us from being and doing, what if we go to fear and show fear no mercy!

Disconnection keeps us alone, what if we go to the disconnection and connect!

What if we go to the very things that stops us from being who we need to be or who we are intended to be, and do the very opposite of what tries to cover us?

I thought about this more…. It opened my mind to many of the things I struggle with. Emotions, anger, fear, shame, isolation … I wonder what if I go to all these things I fear, and face it? what does that look like? What would it feel like? What if I took my fear of anger and yelled at it!? What if I took this unworthiness I feel about myself and made it feel worthy?

This quote was very deep to me when I saw it, it opens up a whole new image of hope for me. Is it possible to go to the very things that we struggle with and show it the opposite? I can’t imagine it being easy, but we can let those things define us, or we can try and beat it.

Sometimes you have to sit and think of what feels worse, feeling the unworthiness, or fighting the unworthiness and killing it with worthiness.

What feels worse? feeling fear, or facing the fear and showing it no mercy?

I am tired of all these things from the past covering me by trying to define me by it’s messages. I am tired of the battle of TUG of WAR by my past.

What if I go to the silence and SAY SOMETHING! What if I do that to all the things that pull at me day in and day out.

This quote is going to stick with me all week until I try it on and figure out how to incorporate this into my healing. I have a feeling this is yet another message from God, showing me the outline or me to color in with wisdom.

I smile tonight knowing that God has given me another thing to up to hope and use it as my continued steps forward.

How does this quote fit your life? is there something that you could show up to and show it different in your life?

    As always this brought a scripture to a bubble in my heart!
    “In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” John 1:4-5
    When we show up and say something we shine light on that fear and anger … and the darkness cannot overcome our light! Darkness must retreat in the light. No whatifs about it.
    When we face the fear, the anger, the lies … we reveal the truth. That we are worthy, that we are strong … that we are loved.
    Here’s to showing up!
