The Apocalypse

The Apocalypse

This feels like the end of the world.

The apocalypse and I used to be close. We used to spend so much time together that people wouldn't recognize me unless I was with her.

I used to trust the apocalypse.


And my naivety let the apocalypse take advantage of me.

First, the apocalypse pushed all my friends away.

I told the apocalypse to chill, but the apocalypse gets jealous when I spend more time with other people than her.


The apocalypse disrespected me because that's what she does, and I let her.


The apocalypse lied to me.

She took my hand, looked into my eyes and said she needed me! And I thought I needed her too.


Then the apocalypse stole me from myself, dressed in my clothes and tricked everyone into believing she was me.


Last week, the apocalypse convinced me to lay in bed for hours on end. She guilt tripped me into thinking I would be better off doing nothing, wasting away with her.


The apocalypse finds every way she can to ruin my days, sometimes weeks, maybe months.


The apocalypse needs a reaction out of me to survive.


The apocalypse never left me alone when I was sad, but she never comforted me either.


I do not want to be friends with the apocalypse anymore, I want to kill the apocalypse.


The apocalypse took my home, my peace of mind.

She walked straight through the front door, knocked over all of the picture frames, rummaged through the fridge, gutted the place clean from the attic to the basement, then burned the whole building down.


The apocalypse does not love me, because the apocalypse destroys everything and can only offer the end of the world.


I know the apocalypse isn't good for me, but sometimes she tries to pull me in closer again.


When the apocalypse finally ends, I will still be here.

A Letter From God To Help You Finish The Semester

God sees your struggles and He's here to give you strength and motivation.

My Child,

The lack of motivation towards the end of the semester is normal. You are mentally and physically tired, but you are almost at the end. Don’t stop walking down the perfect path I have for you. When you’re going along and you come upon a speedbump, I want you to go over it and keep driving. The paper you have to write and the test you have to study for are just small speedbumps I have given you to make you wiser. You can write that paper and you can gain motivation to study for that test. I am here to give you strength, and am here to open up your mind and give you motivation.

You are so loved. You have such a beautiful mind. The light of Jesus shines through your eyes and your smile brings comfort to the world. There’ll be times you feel like you’re carrying a heavy load. There’ll be times you feel like the task I have given you is impossible to perform. But remember this: I would never put anything upon your shoulders that you cannot carry. If I put you in a certain situation, it’s because I know you are strong enough to go through it.

When you feel like crying, cry to me. When you feel like a failure, remember how much I love you. You are not a failure and you are not going to give up. I will hold your hand through every second of your life. I will seek your heart through your darkest moments. I see you, I see your heart, and I see your burdens. And remember that I have your heart which means I also have your burdens. Follow my footsteps and you will be free from the doubt. Remember Mark 4:40-41: “Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?” I have the power to calm any storm and wave. I have the power to calm YOUR storms and waves. Set your doubt, anger, and tiredness in my hands and simply be patient.

Romans 8:14-15 says,“For those who are led by the spirit of God are the children of God. The spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again, rather the spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship.” Nothing can separate you from my love. Not even your lack of motivation. You have no motivation because you do not feel good enough. You are more than good enough. You were perfectly made by me and when I look down at you, I think of how proud I am of your heart.

Throughout the last few weeks of this semester, you will stumble upon speedbumps. But hold the hand of my son Jesus and you will be able to go over that speedbump with ease. Go write that paper, go study for that test, and go get an A in that class. I know you can because I have given you power.

Love,

God
