I used to struggle with the idea of what it means to be "Successful." Not surprising, because I was busy comparing myself to other people - and not necessarily for the right reasons...

Today, I subscribe to a different understanding of the word Success:
1) I woke up today.
2) I can breathe.
3) I have clothing and shelter.
4) There are people in my life who love and care about me.
5) I have another chance today, to be the person I've always wanted to be.
6) I have another opportunity today, to make someone laugh or smile.. to find love.. to heal.. to stop and smell the roses.

From my niece. A powerful and moving story.

Fight or flight.

The physiological reaction that your body experiences when faced with imminent danger. When we think about “fight or flight”, we think about instances like getting into a car accident, facing a bear on a camping trip, or falling down and breaking a bone... those are moments when your nervous system, so intricately wired by your creator, decides if you are going to fight or run. It decides whether or not to pause the less important things to address the danger, or whether to equip, organize, and adrenaline rush you so that you survive.

This week, our rainbow baby became suddenly, seriously ill. He had shown no signs of illness until one morning when he awoke with a fever. Later that day, I was packing bags as quickly as I could to get to the hospital.

This was not just any emergency, but a very similar emergency to the one I had experienced before with my Mom and sister, both of whom went to Heaven within a few weeks of becoming ill.

Fight or flight.

For a moment, my world stopped spinning and I acquired tunnel vision that took over my eyes and allowed fear to rush my veins and pain to take over my heart. I couldn’t fathom the mere thought of not coming home with our miracle baby, a reality that so many parents live every single day.

Fight or flight.

I packed as quickly as I could. But I didn’t want to. I wanted to snuggle him up and love him to pieces and pretend that this wasn’t happening. If I could have fixed it, I would have. But I had no more control over that situation, than I did in the one before, or the one before that.

Fight or flight.

He was screaming hysterically. He was sick. In pain. I changed him one last time, and in his inconsolable crying, kicking, flailing , his little lamp hit the floor and shattered into as many pieces as I felt my heart could have been in at that moment.

That was it. That was my fight or flight. That was the moment that I realized I had a decision to make.

I wanted to run. Run away. Far away. From the panic. From the worry. From the pain. From everything.

But I didn’t. Instead I swallowed that knot in my throat, wiped my tears, swaddled him up, and left.

My flesh wanted to flight.

My spirit wanted me to fight.

Read that again, friend.

My flesh wanted to flight. My spirit wanted to fight.

So what draws the line here, friend? What grips you at the shoulders and shakes you free of that human need to run away?

Jesus does.
Only Jesus.

Jesus is every ounce of water you need to drink.
Jesus is every ounce of bravery you need to face your fear.
Jesus is every ounce of blood you need in your veins.
Jesus is every ounce of light you need in the darkness.
Jesus is every ounce of freedom you need to live.
Jesus is every ounce of courage you need to stand.
Jesus is every ounce of strength you need to fight.

And that night, when I wanted so badly to run away, He equipped me with everything I needed to stand and fight. He filled my cup. He took over the wheel. He stroked my cheek. He sang me songs of peace. He covered me with His grace. He held my hand. He walked me into that hospital and friend, I am just not the same.

This night, being the first time I can remember having ever backed down from a fight, He showed me what perseverance in sudden and unexpected battle really looked like. He showed me that even when I feel alone, I am in good, precious company. He showed me how to look past the overwhelming weakness of the flesh and overcome with the strength of the spirit.

I brought my baby home. My past heartaches did not define me. They did not define my future. My chains are broken and I am no longer bound to the immense heartache that has weighed on me for so many years. There was no subtlety in His teaching to me. He was bold. And I am forever grateful that He chose one of my lowest moments to show me one of my greatest strengths.

Fight or flight.

The physiological reaction that your body experiences when faced with imminent danger?

Or the spiritual reaction that your heart experiences when faced with profound circumstances?

I’ve walked past that broken lamp for a few days now. That moment of it falling to the floor and the feeling that flooded me after just keeps playing over and over again, each time I look at it. I haven’t found the right moment to clean it up. There is an ongoing conversation between my heart and my mind on whether or not I have what it takes to sweep up the broken pieces and throw what’s left away.

Because that broken lamp is no longer just a broken lamp.

It’s a part of me that fell away when Jesus pulled me from the valley and made my heart whole again. ❤️🙏🏻
