We must be patient, and be trusting, for God has a plan for each one of us. So as hard as it is to put our humanly agendas to the side, and focus all our energy into God, it’s the only way to the feeling of complete love that we so desperately crave.
While a relationship is a good gift to look forward to, just make sure you don’t miss out on the gift that is right now.
Fall in love with the hours and the time spent actually producing and doing. Don’t fantasize about what life will be like when you reach the goal, but maintain the sobriety of process and action.
It’s important to never allow loneliness to lower your standards.
Help me heal from all the thoughts that make me guarded and all the feelings I force myself to repress because I’ve been hurt before. Help me heal from all the broken pieces and make my heart whole again.
I’ve always seen closed doors as a missed opportunity, as a, I’m sorry”, maybe next time. I’ve always felt so dissatisfied when things didn’t work out, when I didn’t get what I so desperately thought I wanted. But now, I’m starting to see the bigger picture.
Bring me light when I’m in darkness and a path to follow when I feel like I’m wandering in circles. When doors close in front of me, give me new ones to open. When people walk away, give me courage to seek out relationships that both build me, and honor you.
Let me feel the pain, because it’s there, and pretending it’s not makes it far worse. Let me mourn the loss of the things I can’t do right now. Let me be frustrated. Let me cry about it.
Maybe I need to learn to give it all to You, God.
Dear God, thank you for the grief I experienced too young because it made me resilient. I am not destroyed by the people who leave me because the ones who meant everything to me have left already.
