God let me wrestle him.
He let me think I had a say.
I arrogantly thought I’d win, that God would grow tired and say, Well, if you feel so strongly about it…
But the truth was, somewhere in another time and place, I made a promise, to a soul, that I would love him, heal him.
And together we made a promise to God that he could use us to bring healing and love to a land deep in need.
The time for arrogance, ego, and fear has ended.
Welcome to the realm of love, strength, and understanding.
Today I will do what has always been mine to do.
Today I will honor my promises.
Today my wounds from the fight will begin to heal.
I’m not running one more day from a destiny I could never outrun to begin with.
Today will be a most beautiful day.
