What you need to survive is basic. Food, water and air. Some might say that you need some form of solace. Whatever that means to you, and however you find it – it is necessary to live. A place; whether real or imagined, a book or story-telling, a god or The God, words, songs, scripture – something that aligns with your world-belief. What would that be? What sustains you? Brings you peace of heart?
For me, it is simply; God’s grace. He forgives me and never brings it up again. He loves me no matter how far I turn away from Him. He is the light in my darkness, the laughter in my grandchildren, the joy in my heart and the peace in my heartache.
