Sometimes we are beat down so much by the travails of life that it seems intolerable at best.
Are we being punished?
Is it that we aren’t loved?
Have we been forsaken?
But… Maybe it is something else.
Perhaps it is to reinforce a familiarity with the ground, the depths, that distance from our greatest aspirations.
After we wipe the grit from our mouths, the realization will eventually come into focus.
This dark place is the launch pad and we were merely preparing for a glorious liftoff.
