I have been finding treasures in places I did not want to search. I have been hearing wisdom from tongues I did not want to listen. I have been finding beauty where I did not want to look. And I have learned so much from journeys I did not want to take. Forgive me, O Gracious One; for I have been closing my ears and eyes for too long. I have learned that miracles are called miracles because they are often witnessed by only those who can can see through all of life’s illusions. I am ready to see what really exists on other side, what exists behind the blinds, and taste all the ugly fruit instead of all that looks right, plump and ripe.

  1. “And I have learned so much from journeys I did not want to take.” This is so very fitting and even though I hope I don’t have to go through similar challenges in my life ever again, at least not in such dense time span, I can see all that it has taught me in a similarly short time span. Beautiful quote. Thank you for sharing!
