My first post after 3 months off social media. (Part 1 of 7)

Pause. Hiatus. Void.
Why do sunsets seem to be prettier when we’re traveling?
Because we actually stop to admire the phenomenon of changing colours.
Truth be told, I wasn’t sure I’d follow through with this social media hiatus.
I just knew I needed to
declare P A U S E. 
The portals of social media were becoming a rope that choked
and bound me to my old self. 
So I threw the rope off the cliff edge
forgot the logins
deleted the apps.
_
Once I cut the noise,
the Heavens opened before me. 
My eyes tired and dried from looking at a screen for 3 years,
My soul weary from playing a dangerous game with money and gain,
My heart discouraged from failed dreams and false expectations,
The Heavens opened and upon me came a Presence of Security and Certainty I’d been searching for my whole life.
_
I’ve had a thousand AHA's and none of them have escaped my grasp.
Instead, all the revelations have sunk deeper into my soul. 
Given a chance to germinate,
Instead of being pulled out immediately into my writing
I have newfound clarity in how I am supposed navigate this life,
I am not a lonely sailor in a wicked world. 
I am a sailor among a fleet of angel ships.
_
I have watched myself morph
thrive
and adapt into an environment
where I didn’t even think I’d survive.
One blind step of faith
and then one more. 
I followed the clues and signs
walking past all my fears,
pushing past my wounds,
leaving it all in the past. 
At the end of the path
you could say, I found God. 
but more accurately,
God drenched me in his overwhelming, reckless love
and scooped me into the safety of His arms.
He’d been waiting for me all along...
Exhale. 
_
so we begin again.
