“LIFE happens while you’re making other plans”-Unknown
I first saw that quote in the movie “Kuffs” Time flies so fast, choices are made, roads are traveled, plans, and dreams are made. It is a truth that is more real over the past years than it has ever been in my life. Don’t let disappointments broken plans and broken dreams get you down because God’s got a plan. I know it is really hard, at least it can be for me. When I think about where I want to be in life, all I have done and not done…. I have done a lot in my life… I have so many dreams and so many goals… Yet I often get lost in the reality of now. Now I feel like I am accomplishing so little… Especially with my broken foot and being unable to drive. The pressure I put on myself to be this amazing person wears me out… Sure I Have a short story and a small book published. But only one book out of the many I’ve been working on for years… I look at the past Five years I have definitely leaned a lot and experienced a lot… But I feel so far away from where I want to be and I often get lonely… Do you sometimes feel like that?
We have to do our best and make the most of every opportunity, and be Thankful for what we have. We can’t get lost in the “What ifs” we have to live in the now. That is the best I and you can do with Life… I believe God has a purpose for everyone but we also have free will. I don’t want to live with regrets. I don’t want you to have regrets either, so please follow your heart and listen to God. Every moment and every choice can and will affect your future… That includes how you treat others and what you say. “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.” –John 13:34-35
Make time to enjoy life, and don’t get so wrapped up in Must do’s and Have to do’s… They will get done. Take things one thing at a time and Don’t overload yourself and you will move forward one step at a time. Don’t over think because that’s a sure way to get stressed out which will lead to an emotional crash. Lets face it tho we all need a good cry once in a while. We all tend to bottle things inside until they explode… It is ok to cry. That is how God created us to be able to release our stress and feelings. And it is ok to talk to God honestly and Openly. Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. -John 14:27
I know from experience. I took a huge leap of faith and moved across country and my life turned upside down! I keep bring that up because it was a huge deal. I know God won’t ever give you more then you can handle and you are never alone. “But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”-Philippines 4:19
I let go of the reins and I let God start guiding me completely. It hasn’t been the easiest road but it sure has been a wild adventure and I look forward to what God has for me in the future. I find peace when I don’t try to take the whole world on my shoulder. That is not easy for sure. We try so hard to Take charge and stay in control. But lets face it.. Sometimes in doing so we get lost in emotions, stress, needs, thoughts and we forget our main purpose. To lead others To Christ. To Love one another, which means being there for each other. (At least that is what I feel our main purpose is as God’s children.) “All things work for good for those who love the Lord” –Romans 8:28 Hold on to that when the going gets tough and remember you are never alone!
Sure we all have responsibilities. I am not saying neglect them.. But instead turn to God to help you with your needs and wants. And in doing so you will find comfort and peace.. ~Psalms 23~ We try so hard to be What we think we should be That God has to force us sometimes to take a break and just be in His presence. And Honestly where else would you want to be? That is where I want to be. Always in God’s will, Always in God’s Peace and love… No matter how hard things Get… I am so Glad I have Father God, Jesus and The holy Spirit with me. As do you! Do not be so hard on yourself. Only Jesus was perfect… It is impossible for us to be no matter how hard we try. But God loves us anyways and He wants the best for us!
For all men have sinned and have missed the shining-greatness of God.24 Anyone can be made right with God by the free gift of His loving-favor. It is Jesus Christ Who bought them with His blood and made them free from their sins. 25 God gave Jesus Christ to the world. Men’s sins can be forgiven through the blood of Christ when they put their trust in Him. God gave His Son Jesus Christ to show how right He is. Before this, God did not look on the sins that were done. 26 But now God proves that He is right in saving men from sin. He shows that He is the One Who has no sin. God makes anyone right with Himself who puts his trust in Jesus. -Romans 3:23-26 (NLV)
