Hello, loyal readers! In today’s blog, I will be speaking candidly about coming face to face with someone we prefer not to encounter. Who is that? Oneself! It is extremely scary. Many times we run away rather than confront it because the truth hurts!
Why? Because we have to look in the mirror of truth the reality of our flaws, disappointments, fears, and failures. However, when we get the courage to meet ourselves in the mirror eye to eye. We will encounter who we truly are. You are the sum of all your life’s experiences. The good, the bad, and the ugly.
Now, your experiences does not define you. You and should only be you who determines the significance of what you went through. Don’t get stuck there! Discover what were the life lessons of what you went through. Draw a positive outlook even in the most challenging situations you faced.
Ask the questions, “what did I learn from these experiences?” What will I do differently in future circumstances? Uncover misconceptions that keep you bound. See with eyes of wonder, hope, and excitement. Above all, still maintain a heart willing to love, trust, and give of yourself. Only this time you will do it wiser!
Remember you are not the enemy! You are your own best friend to confide in as you walk this journey called life. The greatest part is that you are not doing it alone. God is with you ALWAYS!! He will show you the way and uncover the truth about yourself. You will mature from your experiences as you depend on Him wholeheartedly.
“Teach me your ways, Lord, that I may rely on your faithfulness; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear your name.” Psalms 86:11
Peace, Love, and Joy!
