The best thing you can do for yourself is find peace in your life and never let it go. (Psalm 34:14)
You may think this is difficult because of all that you are going through or all that you are facing but I am telling you it is possible. This is possible by letting go of what was, believing in what is, and understanding that what is to be is already taken care of.
Letting go of what was.
You cannot change anything about your past; the hurt, the loss, the betrayal, the brokenness, you can’t change it so why hold on to it? Why keep hashing it up only to feel the feelings you felt when it first happened. Often times you are waiting on an apology or some type of understanding as to why these things happened and they never come. Now you are just stuck in the moment; a month passes, then six months, now a whole year has gone by and you’re just stuck in these feelings. Make peace with it and let it go. (Isaiah 43:18-19)
Believe in what is.
Once you let go of those things that happened to you in the past you should start believing in what is. They hurt me but this hurt is not going to define my outlook on life. They left me but I didn’t lose anything. I am going to forever miss them but I know they are in a better place. Strife can either break you or it can make you a better person; you can either let the bricks bury you or you can use them to build a solid foundation. (Isaiah 43:10)
It’s already taken care of.
God goes before us and make crooked paths straight (Isaiah 45:2); your future is already taken care of you just have to keep living and progressing. God cannot bless what you will not let him have. Give Him those things that hurt you and watch how He fix those broken pieces and make them whole again. I am 34 years old and I have experienced a lot in my short time here on this earth, things that most people never overcome. I had to learn at an early age that although it hurts it will bring me to my purpose in life. What I was going through was temporary, it was preparing me for my future. I don’t know what all God has in store for me but I do know my future is bright and yours is also. I know this without a shadow of doubt because it is written in His word. (Jeremiah 29:11)
Today forgive the unforgiven, understand that there is no understanding, trust that God doesn’t make any mistakes, and pray for the peace that you so desperately need and deserve.
