When the waves wash over, and bitter cold settles in, and chains cuff the prisoner who is trying to make it through all blinding darkness, there be the greatest enemy. An enemy that is familiar bearing resemblance to yourself, and yet so unknown. The water, the ice, the chains, the darkness, the enemy, all threaten and block the way out that leads to the way forward lit up by the day's sunlight. There comes a time to stop being passive, to stop living beneath, as slave, blinded by darkness, in fear. There will be a breakthrough, as to break through it all powered by strength beyond the exhausted will, supplied and found deeper and farther and yet closer and near. Within, there the body, mind, and soul, can be revitalized with new life by the spirit. Spirit from the Lord, Jesus Christ. This has been my journey from darkness as I am seeing brighter days. I just need to get clear and stay clear of everything that has kept me from getting the best, for my family, my friends, and myself.
