Have you ever been so worn down by your circumstances that it seemed impossible to believe there could be anything good on the other side?
One of the few universal realities we all know to be true is that in life bad things will happen. Days, weeks or even months of life changing circumstances can shroud us in darkness and leave us feeling like our life now is more true than what we were living before our world fell apart.
But even when the pain makes us believe it has a hold on us, it only takes a spark to light up the dark.
Just twenty four hours after my late boyfriend's unexpected passing I was feeling everything and nothing at the same time. In the blur of grief, it was all I could do to just keep going and as I sat with my Mom on my bed, I remember her repeating to me,
“I promise you, only good will come of this.”
In my lowest moment that was the last thing I wanted to hear. It seemed impossible to me to imagine anything good beyond this pain but even so as the days turned to weeks that phrase kept ringing in my mind. Her promise is what gave me the purpose to get through and is ultimately what inspired Track 8, Only Good Will Come of This.
On today’s episode, join me as I share how I learned to find the good in the hardest season of my life and the blessings that came as I found my way back again.
In this episode you will hear,
- The power of my parents united support
- Why we have to take the steps to keep going
- The divine in the writing room
- How openness to our journey impacts not only ourselves but others
At our weakest moments is often when we need to dig in the deepest to find the strength to go on and that is why this song is so close to my heart. Because whenever it all seemed unbearable I would return to my mom’s words as a true north on my healing journey. And friend, putting one foot in front of the other, now you can too.
