Commit to the LORD whatever you do, and he will establish your plans. ~ Proverbs 16:3
When life gets too busy, things go uncontrolled, and a bunch of thoughts are running at the back of our minds, I honestly think there's one sure way to find that peace and break that we all yearn for, and that is to listen. Let Him speak. Sometimes we fill our minds with all the to-do-lists and the bucket lists that we don't get to stop for a moment and hear what God has to say.
Things may not always go in line with the things God would want for us. Sometimes we have to let go of those big dreams in order for Him to work His way through us and insert His much bigger and better dreams for us. It's easy to base our life on someone else we see on Instagram. Those fleeting moments where we compare how much our lives differ than those we see on TV . I have had to remind myself many times that I'll always have my own life to live, goals to achieve and dreams to pursue. With all the stressing factors of 'I should be's', 'I must be able to's' and ' what if's', I often forget that I don't really have my life altogether, God does. He holds it from the very beginning and pretty much knows my story's end.
Listening to what He has to say is not being fatalistic. It's just a way of re-aligning our thoughts with His and making sure that our ultimate desires are God-breathed and our lives are not merely a copy of a famous celebrity's. My friend, you are destined for greater things. Don't let failure ever stop you from becoming who God wants you to be. Delays may seem like forever, but everything has an end and you know who holds things even through the end. If ever you get confused and chaos surround you, just stop for a moment and listen to that calm voice speaking. He'll always have something to say.
A mixture of life, love, faith, and everything in between. Welcome to my space!
