Nocturnal Light by Melanie R. #ChronicIllness #ChronicPain #MitochondrialDisease #IrritableBowelSyndromeIBS #CheerMeOn #MoreDiseases #IfYouFeelHopeless
I was the school spelling bee champion in my 8th grade class. I can remember the ambivalence of walking up to the microphone; looking out into the crowd. Only squinting above the sea of silhouettes, as the stage lights were blinding.
It was down to myself, and one student.
The assembly room was silent except for my quivering nerves, and best classmates whispering cheers in the front row.
Nocturnal was my winning word!
Confusion…? How was this my word?
It would all become crystal clear, and quite a life theme through the pitch black reality of chronic pain/rare chronic illness.
A weighted stone tossed off the cliff in the nocturnal abyss which is actuality of chronic pain/illness. Splash! It will never reach the bottom.
My prize for winning the spelling bee?
A dictionary. A book of words and meaning.
A holy transformation from nocturnal darkness into His everlasting light.
It was Heavenly Father foreshadowing my predestination, and ultimate full spiritual restoration. I would persevere nocturnal darkness enduring chronic pain; but I would indeed find true meaning in His Holy Book.
Many eyes, on earth, and in the heavens; witnessing my true living testament for which I have become very thankful for!
My true reward and fulfillment of light!
Receive The Light Jesus came to bring for all of us! All praises to The Most High illuminating our way!
The sharpest pain
The darkest night,
The Rising Son.
Strewn bright across
A torching dawn
of glowing Might!
He brought me forth across the stage,
and spelled it out,
a glorious praise!
He uncovers the deep out of the darkness, and brings deep darkness to light.
Again, Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world., Whoever follows me, will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.
Light dawns in the darkness for the upright; He is glorious, merciful and right.
