Eventually, all things fall into place. Until then, laugh at the confusion, live for the moments, and know “Everything happens for a reason.”
— Albert Schweitzer
A lot of the time we ask ourselves why certain things have to happen to us, or maybe why things have to happen to other people. Sometimes we sit around wishing things would happen, but we don’t put in enough effort. Sometimes we do everything in our power to make things happen, but they still don’t and it frustrates us. Everything will fall into place, if you let it.
This doesn’t mean we will sit around waiting for every good thing to happen to us. We need to put in at least some effort and stay positive for good outcomes. We need to keep hope and faith alive. We need to believe in ourselves and believe in others. We need to learn how to love ourselves before we can love others. We need to serve others. We need to be true to ourselves and learn how to trust others. We need to have faith in God, that He is there for us every step of the way and know that He is leading us on a path that will help us grow.
These past few months have definitely been a learning experience. Ive felt plenty of stress, anxiety, fear, anger, frusteration, doubt, and helplessness. I caused alot of bad things to happen, because I didnt care enough and I lost hope. I let one bad thought take over, then I let more bad thoughts appear. I reacted to each of them the same way. I couldnt stop one thought, because I told myself I couldn’t. So,I believed I couldn’t. It was a never ending pit of bad thoughts I dug myself into. But the ladder was right next to me the entire time. The ladder is prayer.
I also learned that we need cannot hold onto everything. Let me put it this way, if we force things to happen and if we are making ourselves unhappy by trying to make something happen, then its probably not supposed to happen…at least for the moment or time. You may not see it now but there are so much more going on than the things we can see. The things that our eyes can barely see are beyond of our imagination.
Things may happen now, we may feel it at this moment and judged ourselves and future from it, but life is so much more than these moments that we barely understand. The truth is, we are not even beyond on what God can think for us. We can’t comprehend the greater plan because we are so used of thinking small. But God knows so much better. Remember He is a big and very powerful God. He is up above there in the Universe. He sees every little thing. He sees the way, the detours, the dangers, the right paths and everything that is ahead of us.
