Do you feel as if your life is being tossed in every direction, without any time to even catch your breath. I’ll start by letting you know that YES, there will be a day when it will get better. But, there are steps that you have to take to get to that point.
There was a time in my life when it seemed that anything bad that could happen, happened. Back to back to back I was being faced with another obstacle to overcome. I was angry and I just wanted to hide in a corner until it was all over. I was drowning when everyone else seemed to be having the time of their lives. But something in me told me that I needed to move forward in order to the place that I so desperately wished to be.
I felt like I was being tossed in every direction possible. I realized that I needed to find an anchor. I had to anchor my life so that nothing could move me. Initially I sought that stronghold in a man. I figured someone older, wiser, and stronger could combat these obstacles for me. Little did I know that the guy I was seeking out was actually another huge obstacle to overcome.
I was surrounded and I felt completely beat up. My head was hanging low, and no matter how much make-up I put on, when I looked in the mirror, I saw my own pain and sadness. I needed to anchor myself in something REAL. Something that is unchangeable, unbreakable, and unstoppable.
I walked into a church, sat down, and my life changed. Well, it wasn’t that instantaneous, but when I walked in I felt an energy that I so desperately wanted to stay around. Everything was positive, lively, and encouraging. Although I felt like everyone else could see my scars, I was comforted in knowing that they too were once like me. Little by little I started to let go of my problems and hold onto my promise. My life began to change.
I gained a new vision for my life, a new relationship with my Creator, and a new hope for the future. I couldn’t put my trust in man. I had to put my trust in something greater than me, because I wanted to be greater than I was in that moment.
For all of you out there who feel like all hope is gone, please trust in God. It gets better. A Lot Better!
