{.the beautiful unknown.}

A fragile matter…
this journey we call life.

Laughter turns to silence,
silence turns to smiles,
smiles turn upside down,
and frowns turn into
this thing we call strength.

Strength, courage, wisdom…
all things we gain from
the uncertainties we face.
The uncertainties that scare us.
The uncertainties that can consume us,
but in the end we learn to dominate.

We dominate not by our own power,
but by that of a Savior.
By that of friends.
Friends that last a lifetime…
and friends that change our life.

The unknown is always there waiting.
Its something that grows us
more and more every single day.
Something beautiful.
Not something to be afraid of.

If it weren’t for the unknown,
where would our faith be?
reliance on God?
The list goes on forever…

You see, these things don’t just come to us.
But rather they sneak into who we are
when we don’t even realize it.
When we’re in the middle of the unknown,
God is building our character.
Building who we are…
who He wants us to be.

Don’t lose heart.
Though the days are long,
God is changing us.
growing us.
teaching us.

We can’t always see it,
But it is a beautiful thing
the way He chips away and
molds us into who He wants us to be.

“Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day.” 2 Corinthians 4:16
