There would be times when you feel that you really don’t know who you are anymore. You’ve chased a lot of things and have chased so much to the point that you never noticed you’ve let go a big piece of yourself in the process. You’ve been fighting the wrong battles, and surrendering the wrong things. As a result, you lost yourself in the process.
Now you ask whose fault it was that you’re lost. Let me tell you the answer.
It’s not your fault that you feel broken.
It’s not because of the other people around you either.
It’s all part of the process so that the real you could emerge. We all have striven aimlessly. We have been walking paths blindly, thinking that we are called for such things. We’ve all embraced wrong things at one point in our lives. We tried to hold on for as much as we could. But the moment we realize that it’s time to stop fighting the wrong battles and start choosing to love ourselves, that’s the time we feel lost. Or so we thought. But you see, we are not lost. That’s the moment that we actually find out that there is a different path for us to go. It may still be cloudy and all, but the fog will settle. It will be clearer later. So don’t panic. Be still, for you are on the right track.
Stop blaming yourself for the wrong decisions you’ve made. Can’t you see, it made you wiser. For you to see and truly appreciate the good side of life, you have to be aware of the other side as well.
Stop blaming others as well. Just be thankful to God that He has revealed to you who the wrong people are, and led you to the right ones. Don’t be sorry that you trusted the wrong people. Be thankful that you found new friends in the process. Without those wrong people from your past, you’ll never find yourself being surrounded with the right people you are with today.
So you see, we all end up winning after having lost ourselves. For the true person in us begin to emerge the moment we realize that there is something more in this life. If you feel lost today, let me tell you that it’s okay. Just go through the process and listen to what your heart is really saying, to what God is whispering. The moment you realize that you’re lost is also the exact same moment that you start to look for the right path. The moment you realize that you’re lost is also the moment you’ve been found. But even before that, God has been watching you and whispering to your heart. It’s good that you finally heard his peaceful whisper telling you that everything will turn out right, just trust Him in this.
If this is you today, don’t worry, God’s got this! He will never fail, He will lead you through the valley and to the streams of waters and pleasant meadows. Everything’s gonna be alright. Hang in there, help is coming. Actually, help is here. Grab on to God, take His hand and let Him lead you. Be still and know that God is God. He will make something beautiful out of the ugly moments and the ashes there are in our lives.
