#17: You are blessed even in a dark place
At this time of year, lots of people are going through ups and downs. You may have a smile on your face, but not be as happy as people think you are. Are you in a dark place? Even though it might be hard to believe in the middle of the darkness, you are blessed. You can go to God in prayer, and while it may seem like a dry season, the refreshing, nurturing rain is coming.I once knew a beautiful, intelligent, smart, funny woman named Collette. We were the best of friends! About six years ago, she was diagnosed with cancer; just two months later, she was gone from this earth. She passed away on Christmas Eve, of all days. That was one of my dark times. God shined His light on that darkness, and blessed me to start my company, the Entrepreneurial First Lady.Take comfort in knowing that the reason that you have big problems is that you have a big destiny. Darkness develops your character! Think of a photo back in the old days of film: it had to be developed in complete darkness. The same goes for seeds; they need to germinate in the darkness underground, not in the light on the surface. The darkness develops your character. It makes you stronger and wiser, and helps your roots go down deep.The very best is still yet to come, just for you!
