As of late, things have been changing in my mind. Reasoning for the way situations are, have come into better picture like a camera thats out of focus slowly coming into perfect frame. I found myself consumed with situations that I had to make hard decisions for. My mindset has changed and the chains of these events have been broken....
One may not get what I mean by some of my statements, but let me digress a little more. You ever have a time in your life, where your whole mindset, whole being, whole life goes into overdrive and you are totally immersed and over your head in that one, single, solitary event. Be it a boyfriend/girlfriend, school, sports, whatever it is your life is totally devoted to that. Being the imperfect person that I am, my eyes have been awaken by God's grace to how much emphasis I placed on certain things that I totally was shut out from God in that one area.
You see, we should let God immerse our life in situations, rather than have ourselves dive right into them. We should look above for answers that we have in life, such as what should I do about a certain relationship/friendship that is taking up all my time thinking. I feel that as of these last couple months my mindset has been to just ride out the situation and let God take the driver's seat. I've been blinded by my own pride, by my own selfishness, that I totally put God out of the equation for such a long time.
Throughout my whole walk with Christ, it has been hard to follow the narrow path. Not going to lie, I've fallen off sometimes, I've hit roadbumps that broke my spirit, but through it all the answer has been inside and wanting me to come back to Him. I love reading the verse in the Bible that says God will never put us in situations that He knows we can't get out of....Something about that is just so amazing and humbling. You see God could just not worry or care for my life, but he chooses to test my relationship with Him and knowing I'm going to fall he always provides an outlet....it's just so humbling a thought.
So the point of me writing this is to let you know what I'm realizing in my walk. Sorry if this doesn't put into perspective anything for you, but this revelation in my life has really changed my attitude in relationships for the better so I don't get hurt/or hurt others. And overall these past few months have been the happiest of my life, thanks to God, family, and the many new friends and the one's that have always been there....God bless
