Make no mistake about it – life is hard. So many things happen to us throughout our time spent on this earth, and sadly, some of those things are not pleasant. We walk away from these situations feeling as if we will never be the same again. Our heart is beaten up, broken, brusied and bleeding. We wonder if it can ever be repaired, we wonder if it can be whole again. More
Make no mistake about it – life is hard. So many things happen to us throughout our time spent on this earth, and sadly, some of those things are not pleasant. We walk away from these situations feeling as if we will never be the same again. Nothing looks the same to us anymore and we let those negative emotions take hold in our hearts, grabbing hold, leaving its permanent mark. It is as if there has been a chunk of our hearts scratched, sliced through, torn open, ripped out; leaving us wounded. We wonder if we can be whole again.
The answer is yes. What we have accepted is that our lives will be different and changed by these events - that we will not have the life we had before. We accept this theory believing that God has simply put us on a new path; one we will follow and filled with just as many wonderful things as we had before. Our experiences shape who we are and we will find many more places to go and people to love.
But what if I told you that it doesn’t have to be that way? We can find the life we had. It is not as if those experiences in our life don’t have an impact on us. We have to accept that they have happened, we even have to remember them from time to time, but they do not have to take control over us, they do not have to lead us down a new path.
No matter what path you follow in life it is similar everybody else’s. It has its smooth parts and it’s rocky ones. We try so hard to find the smoothest path to follow in life, but those don’t exist, and if they did could you ever really even call that path a life? It would be nothing more than surviving. That path may seem fine for the time being, but eventually you will start to feel a little sad about it, you will remember the life you once had, and you will miss it. Do not fear that road, it may have lead to something that has wounded you, but that does not mean you have to stay wounded. So do not fear it, for God is with you along your journey. He is there to lend a hand. We must look to him to guide us.
