my spark will never dwindle again

A year ago I lost my spark. I felt as if I was a dying flame where nothing could save me. I lost all hop in myself. I thought that if I didn’t get the perfect grades, played the best sport, looked a certain way, I had no purpose. All my confidence was lost. The kind-hearted and independence I once had, dissipated. When I felt more despondent than ever, Isaiah 41:10 made a tiny spark in my heart. For I was reminded that the bible states clearly that the Lord is my strength. For I am weak, but through him, I will be strengthened. For people will fail me and I will fail myself, but through him I have a purpose. He will never leave or forsake me. For I am not my mistakes. I am not my grades. I am not marked by a sport. He constantly reminds me that I am beautiful. I am strong. I am bright. I am loved. My flame shall never dwindle for who I was a year ago, doesn’t have to be who I am today. I am made new through Christ. I know that I was put on this earth with a purpose that is unbelievably amazing. That spark, lit a flame that is bigger than ever before. For I will not look back to the old me because who I was a year ago will never be who I am today.
