I’ll Get You Through It

I’m not sure today. Not sure if I heard anything or if I’m making things up in my head in order to say I heard something. Today wasn’t as clear as it has been…

Still, it continued to be wonderful.

We did six school programs. In each we started with a tunnel where we yelled and screamed until we could yell and scream no more. Then we danced hula, we played games, and we split into small groups. In each group we asked the Japanese students a bit about themselves and even though it was difficult for them to understand English, we powered through. We did this six times.

Six times of being sweaty, uncomfortable, and awkward. I was so annoyed with how many layers I had to wear to be “appropriately” dressed. I was so tired of dancing around. I was so over yelling and even smiling. But when that last song hit… One Direction…

“Let’s get crazy, crazy, crazy ‘til we see the sun. I know we only met but let’s pretend it’s love. And never, never stop for anyone. Tonight let’s get some, and live while we’re young.”

(I know it’s not the most appropriate or relevant song lyrics, but it’s a hype song nonetheless.)

When that last song hit it was if my frustrations that were weighing me down never even existed. Somehow, I had the energy and the spirit to just keep going.

And maybe that’s what God is telling me. That even in the midst of the scary, unknown, unpredictable that causes me to worry, I can call upon Him for that boost of energy to make it through one more time. Ultimately, He’ll get me through it.
