Hope In The Ashes, by Josh Blount

Apologies for the silence the last few weeks. Life has been just a little bit complicated here, to say the least. We’ve had a stabbing and two huge E- Squad shakedowns along with the covid quarantine.  They found so many phones and other contraband during the raids, they decided to keep us on lockdown for the time being.   I think over the last month and a half we’ve had about  five days when we weren’t locked down.  No work, no classes.  Everything is at a stand still.  It seems like one step forward,  two steps back sometimes.   Anyways….what can you do?!

     I try to use this whole experience as a learning opportunity.  Patience has never been a strong point of mine.  By the time this is all over,  I think I’ll have a PhD!

     I heard a quote the other day that really resonated with me.  “Don’t focus on what you lost in the fire,  look for what you can find in the ashes.”

I can sit around dwelling on the negative but I choose to focus on the future! Jeremiah 29:11 promises that I have a hope and future. Lamentations 3:26 talks about waiting and hope. That pretty much sums up my life. Merry Christmas and God bless

  1. I look for the positive in every negative. Everything has a time and place. Sometimes when something bad happens it really isn’t as bad as what might of happened. This is my personal way of looking at life.
