“If the hurt comes, so will the happiness. Be patient.”
The first thing that I want you to know is that, it is okay to not be okay. Life has away of tossing us in the wind and hitting us with one situation after another. We often get tired and drained, we want to quit fighting and just give up. I’m here to tell you today, GIVE UP.
- Give up trying to fix it yourself.
- Give up trying to change someone.
- Give up trying to control everything.
- Give up anxiety, worry, and fear.
- Give up trying to replace your brokeness with things of this world.
- Give up the hurt.
- Give it all, to Jesus.
I know, I know. Easier said than done, right? I am not saying it is easy, but I am saying it is possible. One thing I want you to know is that your struggles and pain are NOT from God. Evil is not from the Holy One but from the enemy. The struggles and pain in this world is from the devil himself and sorry to say but, also from our stupid decisions. Jesus died for you to be in peace and joy.. not fear and worry. (“For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.” 2 Timothy 1:7)
Jesus died to take your hurt away. He took it ALL on Him so we could live a life of joy, letting other people know that He loves them and wants to know them! Today, He wants you to come to Him, cry to Him, be angry, be sad, feel your emotion! That is not wrong, He gave us emotions for a reason but let them out and than let them go. Give your heart to him, give your hurt to Him.
When you wake up every day, say some things such as, “God you are in control, guide my steps today!”, “I am strong and with Jesus, I can get through anything.”, “I am more than enough.”, “Jesus I need you!” Just talk to Him through-out your day, about any and every thing.
Stop letting the media tell you what is “important” and focus on being the light of Jesus to people in this world. Get into the word of God and let His spirit show you His truth and when He tells you to do something, do it. You will be so glad that you did..
Remember, this world is a cruel place and it is okay to be upset sometimes but you have a bigger promise ahead of you and his name is Jesus. You are worthy, you are beautiful, you are loved, you have a purpose and you are absolutley wonderful.
Wait on Him, His timing is perfect.
