Genuinely Alive

For the first time in a very long time, I feel genuinely alive.

Whereas before I was detached, spiritless and dead, now, everything seems bright, light and clear.

Joy and inner peace, qualities which were once alien and strange to me, are as automatic when I spend a few moments of talking to Him.

No longer going through the motions but taking every single moment of the day with intention and purpose.

My senses are amplified and my path is already set before me, for His way is indeed paved with good intentions.

In this life, there will be good and bad days, but I am given an inexplicable quiet strength to take them all head-on.

I am hopeful, courageous and looking up. Iโ€™m wide awake and so alive. I shed my skin, my scars. Nothing can dim these stars. Absolutely nothing.

Somehow, my love for this life has tripled. Knowing I am not alone, and to no longer rely on my strength but His.

I am satisfied. You are indeed enough.

Where there is no vision, the people are unrestrained,
but happy is he who keeps the law.

(Proverbs 29:18)
