I took this after a rough storm, shortly before leaving Pennsylvania. You may feel like the flower looks—a little beat up after all you’ve been going through. Not perfect, but alive, healing, and getting stronger.
You can focus on the damage the last storm did until the fear of another one takes control of your life. Or, you can renew your mind and heart by choosing to see all you still have to be grateful for, recognizing all God wants to be for you right now, and asking him to show you the next step to becoming the brilliant, brave, blessed child he sees you as.
