Dearly Beloved of God,
Life is beautiful. Life is worth living. Life is good. Life is a journey. Life is spiritual. Life is a highway. Life, is whatever you make it but most importantly, life is strange.
Where you start out and where you end up may not be the same. In whatever street of life you find yourself, stay the course and be happy. Stay the course and run your own race. Your journey is your journey and there is no need to compete and compare. Everyone cannot go where God is taking you. As you go higher, some will leave willingly; others will be forced to leave, and those who remain were granted permission by God.
Your relationship or marital situations are not permanent. It’s either you care too much and get hurt or you care too little and lose hope. But the good news is that they are not there to defeat you. Those situations will eventually work together for your good. Stop crying, stop blaming everyone and most importantly, stop blaming yourself. Instead, cast your burden upon the LORD and He will sustain you; He will never allow the righteous (you) to be shaken – Psalm 55:22.
When writing the story of your life, don’t let anyone else hold the pen. If your marriage is in a mess, turn it into a message but don’t die doing it. If you can’t go on, rest. If things don’t add up, start subtracting. Some people and situations had to be left behind. They were holding you back. God removed them from your life to make room for BIGGER blessings!
When your love is not accepted, given no attention and being rejected, it’s time to move on. There is a difference between loyalty and slavery. To move forward in life, somethings from the past must be thrown away. You can never force a person to see what they’re not looking for. Save yourself the headache and move on with your life. Don’t allow yourself to be anyone’s second choice. Those in your life shouldn’t be your headache but your peace. Thank them for showing you how little you mean to them and move on.
Every storm runs out of rain. Every trial has an expiration date. So don’t you dare faint before your due season. Don’t miss your harvest by quitting BUT if you have to quit, try. And before you talk, listen. Before you react, think. Before you criticize, wait. BEFORE YOU MOVE ON, FORGIVE. Forgive and press on knowing that you can’t change how people feel about you, so don’t try. Just live your life and be happy. Don’t be jealous when they give someone the kind of attention you want from them. Don’t be happy on the outside but breaking apart on the inside. At times you may think everything is going to go “wrong” without realising that God is just setting everything “right”. So be grateful for the good times and keep the faith during the bad times. Stay positive when life gives you every reason to be negative.
I pray that the Lord, who gives peace, will always bless you with peace. May the Lord be with you – (2Th 3:16 CEV).
You aren’t pressed, your season is here. God is going to keep opening doors for you just to shut the enemy’s mouth. The mistakes of your past will not block the blessings of your future. Stay the course today, endure with hope and be blessed in the Lord’s Grace. Your season of restoration has begun – Joel 2:25.
