Hope :: My Symbol

I only just realized I’ve never really talked about the symbol that represents all of my writing and videos. It’s attached to my emails and at the end of every blog post. But I’ve never written here about it.

If you look closely, there is a semi-colon. As many of you will know, the semi-colon is a representation that the story is not yet over. Too often, people feel that they’ve reached the end of any good. They may feel like their life doesn’t even matter anymore.

This is why I write these posts. Your story DOES matter. Your life DOES matter. No matter how broken things seem or how lost you feel, your story is not over yet. It doesn’t have to end with a period.

The dove is a symbol of the Holy Spirit.

When I’ve been at my worst, when life has seemed to be too much to handle, I’ve always had God to breathe new breath into my life.

I have a habit of acknowledging God in the good and trying to do things all by myself in the difficult times.

This happened again only recently.

Depression was a living, breathing thing in my life (it still is, don’t get me wrong). I was missing everything. If I wasn’t at work, I was sleeping. Even sleeping 10 hours didn’t make me feel rested. I even missed my nephew’s second birthday party because of it.

I realized that something needed to change.

I knew my story wasn’t over yet, but I wasn’t really living. I was existing enough to work. But even in my work I was no longer the bubbly person who checked in on everyone else and did kind things for them. I was just there.

In realizing how much the depression was ruling my life, I turned back to God. I remembered the presence of the Holy Spirit in my life. When I dedicated time to Him, things immediately began improving.

No, things aren’t perfect. However, I do feel like I’m living again. And not in a pit of despair.

So, my friend, this is what my symbol means:

Your story is not yet over. And with the Holy Spirit, you can live a fuller and more vibrant life.
