The struggle is real when you feel broken. Heartbreak? Goodbyes? Growing up? It’s all hard. Trusting God to work everything out in His time may be one of the biggest struggles that we face as young people. We are told in the bible so many times to just trust the Lord, so why do we constantly battle what He already has planned out? It is so hard to learn from mistakes, to realize that some things are lessons to be learned, and to discover that what we thought was perfect….isn’t.
I have personal struggles, bad days, and trouble seeing the rainbow in the storm. In these moments, I feel lost. I have to always remember who I am living for. Let’s be honest here….I struggle to remember that storms don’t last forever. Battling the inner voices in our heads telling us we aren’t good enough, and slowly one by one picking our flaws that we hate about ourselves begin to make up who we are.
Each and every one of us are worthy of a love so magical we can’t even see straight. We all have a love story waiting for us. We all have a future ahead of us. We all have a God that loves and provides for us. Why can’t we all believe that? Let’s not let this challenge of trusting God with all of our anxieties and doubts be on our minds.
When you feel unwanted, not beautiful and sad remember his name and don’t ever go back. That one who hurt you doesn’t deserve your heart and you don’t deserve to feel that way….at all. Sometimes when you feel like your world is falling apart, you feel as if you just can’t shed another tear. God says your world will be okay. Your hurt won’t go away overnight, but it will be OKAY!
When God leads you to someone, it’s for a reason. Just as He lead someone out of your life, it’s for a reason. Some days I struggle to believe that. Saying goodbye to someone may mean both healing and hurting. Saying goodbye makes your heart hurt all while it’s helping you see the plan God has.
Surrounding yourself around people that love you, value your heart are the kind of people God has meant to be in your life. Don’t even waste your time or tears on someone who doesn’t value your passionate heart. Through these moments that’s when you should trust in God more because He fulfills His promises and His promise was to make you into everything He meant you to be. I can’t wait for that day it all becomes clear.
There will be moments in this life worth waiting and living for, so I will wait with grace for those moments to make me smile. To me, love is doing the laundry together, laughing at nerdy jokes and snuggling in silence on the couch. I’ll gladly wait for that love.
Sometimes we need to just stop and be held by God.
Ladies, remember your worth and don’t ever let a sad moment rule your life. You will not be broken. Don’t cry over the boy who made you feel like a used piece of notebook paper. Don’t settle for half-way kind of love…..you deserve the world, and God will give it to you. Believe that! I choose to believe that.
