We don’t always have to understand everything that is happening in our lives. We cannot make every little piece of our puzzling lives come together. We cannot force people to love like we love, or feel what we feel. We cannot make each other understand the beating of our hearts, even if we fully show ourselves to them. We cannot alter what happens in this life other than to fight for what we feel and learn, even in our brokenness, to let go, to heal.
And so, you cannot blame yourself for when he/she walks away, for when he/she stops fighting, for when the job falls through or the place feels strange or the best-laid plans turn to mush at your feet. Even when you’ve done everything you can and it is still not enough. You cannot shoulder the burden of every torn connection, broken dream, shattered promise, storm that has taken your joy and blown it two thousand miles away. You cannot. You cannot force everything to happen the way you want it.
Failure and disappointment don’t have to be your self-definition. You are not to blame for every little thing that doesn’t go your way.
We must find comfort in the acceptance of what is, rather than forever seeking what could have been. We might never understand his plan but we simply need to trust His will.
We don’t need to go back in our past but we can look back to learn. We need to let people know that what God did is bigger than what someone did over us. Trust God knowing that He is protecting you from something that could harm or kill you, not just physically but emotionally, spiritually. Sometimes pieces of this life just don’t go the way we want them to, and perhaps, In God’s perfect time we will understand why and look forward to hope. Everything may not work the way we plan it but simply trust GOD for His ways are better than our ways and His plans are always better than ours. (Jeremiah 29:11)
We must be responsible for our part, but find peace in knowing there is so much that we cannot control. We need to trust God and simply accept that we cannot control everything that happens to us. We are not in control but God, He is always in control. (Psalm 46:1, 10)
You must try to love yourself, even when your life is messy. You must shake the heaviness from your shoulders and be willing, and open to starting again. You must allow yourself to heal and know that you are not always at fault for what happens. You need to let go of all the burden and to simply empty yourself so that God can fill you. You need to stop being so full of yourself and of others and to Let God fill the void in you. Let Go. Let go and Let GOD.
We don’t have to understand it all, all we need to know is that there is a God who will be with us in times of our despair. That our God, is a very present help in times of trouble. That God, will never leave us in our weakness 🙂
All my Love,
