I’ve mentioned my faith in a number of posts and there is no doubt in my mind that I am on a path that was designed by God.
Sometimes, though I get just a little irritated with the roadblocks he had set up for me. He has built everyone differently. We all have our strengths and weaknesses, he knows them because he gave them to us and he knows how we will handle them. 1 Corinthians 10:13 says God will not give us more than what we can bear, but boy does he push it to the limit!
Every time something new and exciting happens in my life, the first thing I do is worry, and question everything. I know that is common for most when something new is happening and it is normal, but sometimes it takes me to those places in my past that if I dwell on them, will do nothing but cause me grief.
I would hope after all these years that I am stronger than those past hurts, but in certain circumstances, there they are again. I will do everything in my power not to let them have any factors on my future, and because I can see that they are happening I am confident that I will beat them.
Recently I was at an appointment with my mom, she was having her blood pressure checked and the nurse taking it said “you should check it first thing in the morning, because after that life happens”. That was one of the most profound statements I had heard in a while it opened up my mind that on a daily basis we may not expect what transpires, we may not have ever dreamed certain things will happen, but one thing is for sure that “something” will happen during the course of our days.
That “something” can be good, or it may be bad and learning how to adjust to it when it happens is what is key. I am not afraid to admit that I have not perfected this just yet. God and a few close friends right now know that I am still learning. I will not limit my future based on my past, and I hope that those reading this will do the same.
Have you had a “life happens” moment where you needed to stop, breathe, think and then react in order to go into your future? Please comment.
