living through wars

"I fell apart so many times.
So.
What does that say about me
besides
I live through
wars."

In life, bad things happen. Conflict, accidents, miscommunication, hate, war. People hurt other people, people hurt themselves. Wherever you go and wherever you are, mental and physical crippling occur. All these things happen in the world around us, a lot of it may even happens to us.
There's no running away from it all, no closing your eyes and hoping it will have disappeared when you open them.
You have to get through it. Through the trenches, through the wildfire of gunshots, through enemy territory. And you keep going.

"I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it."

Bravery is not a lack of fear. Bravery is when you beat fear.
So, be brave. And don't forget that it helps to focus on good things when it feels like the world is collapsing. Because the truth is, we do live in a world that is falling apart. But that doesn't mean you should forget all the blessings and good things that still exist.

Philippians 4:8 - Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy- meditate on these things.



This is something I've been learning. Something God has been teaching me...and I wanted to share it with you. So, I hope that you were inspired.
