This was posted on SM August 21, 2019, and is more relevant for me today:

Are you hanging on by your fingernails? In this moment, it’s enough. If you look down, see if you can find someone to give a hand up. Look up and see if someone is reaching out a hand to you. I have to be careful to not visualize to the point where I don’t recognize help/guidance/inspiration from an unexpected direction in an unexpected way. Hope, no matter how weak, is like a candle’s flame, stronger than the darkness. Even a spark overpowers the darkness, if only for a moment. A few sparks make a sparkler. God created us, like He created the sun, the moon, and the stars. He created you to shine in your place and your time. He hasn’t asked you to be a supernova, only to be you. If you don’t know who you are, who better to help you find the answers. I’m working on it.
