Yes.. After all you’ve been through, you are still standing. You survived!♥️
This year has taught me that I cannot keep running from the storms, the pain, the disappointments, the heartaches. No, I have to stand in them and through through them. Sometimes I feel like I’m getting too old for this. I’m too tired. Then, God reminds me that He’s strong when I’m weak. All I have to do is lean on Him. He’s brought me through before and He’ll do it again. BUT.. I have to go through it. Running from it only delays the breakthrough. It delays progress, which delays the dream.
Today, I am beginning a little late. Decided everything else could wait. I needed to spend some quality time with God. Do not get me wrong, I talk to God all day long; however, while I’m talking, I’m also doing a million other things. So if my focus is not solely on God can I truly say I’m spending time with Him? Hmm…
Well, I began today a bit differently. In stead of me doing a lot of talking– asking a thousand questions and trying to figure things out– I sat still and listened. If you did not know, so many answers can be found while sitting still and giving God your undivided attention. You should try it!
So, yes.. today, I sat still, listened and found my answers. I hear You, God. Smiling
How many times have you started your day and right when you think everything is going well, you hit a bump? #GottaLoveLife, right?!
Listen, don’t let the bumps get you down. Over the years, I’ve learned that bumps are only lessons designed to make us stronger. So breathe, release, refocus and KEEP GOING! Life does get better.♥️ ~ Shaun
