It’s been a while since I have blogged, but I am back. Bare with me on this one. As a warning, I am going to be very transparent. I am not a big fan of putting personal issues on social media, but I feel led to be an open book for the simple fact that my aim is to heal, and to help someone else heal. This post is not meant for all, but for those going through a storm. If you are not going through a rough time, bypass this message and go on with your merry day. If you are a person that is at a place where you are stuck, where you feel overwhelmed, and where you feel like you are not understood by anyone… This is for you.
In order for you to further understand the simple fact that I am going to give you at the end of this post, you must understand that you are not alone. Have you ever felt like nothing, no matter how hard you try, is working out for you? The people who are supposed to be your support system are the very ones trying to hold you back. Friends become less and less with each passing day OR you are surrounded by people yet you are lonely. The more you push to work and succeed, the more things begin to fail. You try to make everyone happy, although it makes you feel worse. You get enough sleep, yet your mind, body and spirit is drained. Optimism isn’t making the day brighter. When you are at the point of breaking down, you can’t. “You have to remain strong,” they say. Tears have fallen from your eyes so much that you have no tears left. Venting doesn’t help because nobody truly understands how you feel. The devil just keeps attacking you from every direction. You are fighting a battle within yourself along with the battle you are fighting against the world. YOU. ARE. BROKEN. I can say this because I understand. This is me.
If anything or everything I have just said relates to you, then listen closely.
Are you ready?
Well, Here it is:
GIVE IT ALL TO GOD!
Why? God is the greatest comforter. When nobody is there to listen, he is right there. Things fail, but he has a strategy for you. God is all you need. It took me a long time to fully understand. God had to break me in order to trust, depend, and look only to him. Life can sometimes get in the way to cloud your vision of who is really there for you. Your storm that you are in is almost over. The funny thing about storms is they are an indication that something major is on the way. Your storm is preparing you for what you were not ready to receive. The closer you get to your blessing, the darker the clouds and the heavier the storm gets but the end is brighter than the beginning! Isaiah 41:10 says “Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.” He did not bring you this far to leave you! Just hold on.
I hope that I have helped you, whomever you may be. Just remember to keep pushing. Every storm must end. The light is peeping through the darks clouds. You can see it if you just look up!
I love you all! Xo.
