If anyone hasn’t told you this or your mind has been playing tricks on you again, this I’ll tell you:
Yes, you can.
Yes, you can pass that exam. You’ve been preparing for it over the past months. Having loads of sleepless nights and daily doses of coffee just to keep you awake. You may be experiencing some discouraging circumstances but never lose hope, for God Himself will repay all of your sacrifices if you just put your faith in Him.
Yes, you can fulfill your bucket list. Those things you wanted to do, places you want to go, everything will happen to you; just keep on moving forward. Be consistent with the efforts you’re doing in order to reach your goals. Little by little you can achieve those bucket list of yours, just pray for it and it will be given to you.
Yes, you can get your dream career. Experiencing a lot of hardships starting from those failed interviews up to getting different kinds of jobs that aren’t your area of expertise and don’t make you happy. Believe that everything happens for a reason. If you haven’t experienced all of those things, you wouldn’t become this strong person who is capable of doing a lot of amazing things.
Yes, you can fall in love with someone who is worthy of you. Dealing with different kinds of heartache has made you wiser but more guarded. But know that God has a plan for each and one of us, that means He has someone special stored for you. Maybe you already met them or they’re on their way, just caught up in a little traffic. Nonetheless, you will fall in love with someone who will prove to you that happy endings are real.
Yes, you can overcome your fears. Everyone has their own fears and anxiety. I know how hard it is to have a battle with your own mind, but believe me when I say that; you are better than you think you are. God created all of us uniquely but beautifully. Don’t let your fears or anxiety define who you really are. Because first of all, you are not what your fears or anxiety is telling you.
Yes, you can forgive. Forgiveness is not easy to get nor to give. We often forget that God Himself forgave all of us despite the fact that we betrayed and forsake Him. Being a human doesn’t mean we can’t do good things just like what God is doing. We must first forgive ourselves before forgiving others, because how can we make peace with others if we don’t have peace within ourselves. Be patient and kind to yourself. Learn to let go and let God take over, for He will help you no matter what.
If you ever think that you can’t do a lot of things because of your anxieties, that negativity that surrounds you, this I tell you again and again until it sinks in your mind; YES YOU CAN.
For God said,
“If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.” – Matthew 21:22
So please stop being hard on yourself. Learn to love yourself a little bit more, starting from believing that you can be a good person who can do a lot of amazing things. Believe that good things take time, so just live your life to the fullest. All of these will happen if you start to believe that it will happen.
And, yes you can make it happen.
