I can’t believe I’m still alive after all I’ve been through. I’m not only physically alive but spiritually as well — and even more now than ever before. Daily, I look in the mirror and get reminded of death from a six-inch scar down my stomach and the terrorizing nightmares that sometimes replay in my mind. How could I have faced death three times? How can my own father treat me as if I don’t exist, as if I am nothing to him? How did my single mother raise two kids on her own? Why did I ever doubt God’s presence in my life? Yes, this all happened and because it didn’t kill me it only made me stronger! Now, I know I am worthy of life, love, and purpose! Now, I know there can never be light without darkness! And it is my time to shine. With the love of God, and perseverance, there is nothing I cannot and will not overcome. I pray you find happiness even when there seems to be nothing to smile about like I have. Now I see those near-death experiences and struggles as blessings.
