Many times we can find ourselves doing things to please others rather than ourselves. And while it is such a wonderful quality to care for others and always be the person “to be there,” there will be times where you need to be there for yourself. This has been one of the biggest lessons I have had to learn recently, and I have felt an overwhelming urge to share this with you all today.
Along with that, I think over the past few weeks I have learned that God puts you through different stages in life, and with a certain stage ending it is so important to always be willing to transition into the next stage. Take it from a stage five clinger, this was and is still very hard to grasp at times. Especially when God guides you through an amazing stage, one that you wish you could take hold of just a little longer. I think one of the biggest lessons to be learned about hardship is that it’s God preparing you for something great, and often times something even better than you could have ever imagined.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.
For so many of us we are constantly worrying about what’s to come instead of being in the now, because truly that is all we can control [to an extent of course.] I’ve always found it difficult to cope with things that I cannot change, and in turn it just ruins possibility for whats to come. In the simplest of terms we need to let go, and let God. Do not let the struggles of yesterday cloud over the chance for tomorrow.
With that being said I invite you all to be in the now and focus on what you can achieve today, rather than what you didn’t achieve yesterday, and what you may achieve tomorrow. As corny as it sounds your window of opportunity is now, and with God anything is possible.
