Be Still My Soul.

Sometimes its hard to be brave. To be the stronger one
Sometimes its hard to be the bigger person and watch others do things well, wrong
Sometimes it hard to sit back and watch someone else go through all you have already been through
Sometimes its hard to tell people what to do and to somehow get them to respect your authority
Sometimes its hard to figure out how to explain that you know what is best for yourself to others who completely misunderstand
Sometimes its hard to adjust to change and step outside of your comfort zone
Sometimes its hard to take that leap of faith you know will change everything
Sometimes its hard to listen to people telling you not to get your hopes up
Sometimes its hard to let reality sink in and to try to tell yourself it will be okay
Sometimes its hard to grasp that life quickly comes and passes and won't wait for you to catch up
Sometimes its hard to look at those pictures and understand that the wait is far from over
Sometimes its hard to figure things out for yourself and to keep finding dead ends
Sometimes its hard to keep pushing forward without the slightest bit of recognition
Sometimes its hard to let go of the past and begin anew
Sometimes life is just really hard.

But sometimes I remember that even through the hardest of moments, I have a divine purpose. No trial is too difficult and no obstacle is too complicated. 

Sometimes I remember that "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me" (Philippians 4:13) and suddenly everything is okay.

Sometimes I just need to get on my knees and pray, and immediately I am reminded of the love my savior and my Heavenly Father have for me.

Sometimes I just need to relax, and remind myself that I am in good hands.

These are our sunbeams... some of them.
They are precious. I love my calling so very much.

Happy Sunday :)

All my love,
Aleigh Joy
