I always look back and obey.
Oftentimes I wonder, why the heck am I in this position? I definitely DO NOT deserve this! But then I pause and pray. When I slowly move back and calm down, I think of what God’s plans are. I keep telling myself, I will never understand His plans. But then He doesn’t want us to just understand. He wants us to trust Him and accept.
Now the very reason why I am writing this is not because I don’t understand God but because I now do more than ever. How I came to a realization about how I should not question absolutely anything that God brings my way is very simple – I obey.
4 things to keep in mind are:
1. YOU CANNOT CHANGE WHAT IS HAPPENING. That is right. You cannot skip the inevitable. If life gives you challenges, you cannot just say “pass” and try the next one, take this on and move to the next one. We just need to accept and deal.
2. DO NOT OVERTHINK. This directly applies to me and it is really very personal that I have to remind myself this every time. Just as simple as that, with all things, NEVER overthink. Just chill, do not ignore but be chill and have a calm sense of resolution for challenges.
3. APPRECIATE. Even if today is your crappiest day ever and you think that the world dumped its poo on you… try to remember that you are alive to experience the warmness and the gooeyness of the poo while others aren’t. Just the mere fact you are breathing and not fighting for oxygen is one good reason to be appreciative. We all know that s*!@ happens, but as it is, learn to wipe and appreciate the fact that you actually were able to dump your excesses successfully! Little things in life greatly matters, we just need to see the beautiful side of everything.
4. FORGIVE AND LOVE MORE. You are probably hurt by people who hacksawed your back but it is your own burden if you keep your grudges. Forgive. Hard, but a very effective way of just living free and releasing negativity. Love more. Love the people who loves you more and never stop caring. Always pray for the best and claim continuous blessings from the Lord. When you are hurt, bow down and pray more. Ask for spiritual guidance so you won’t go astray. Love more, pray harder and live better.
Looking back to what I have been through, I could’ve been a better person, I could’ve acted a lot better and I could’ve resolved it way more effectively. But then I learned because I have been on my lowest before and I know that the best is yet to come so I always look back when things are harder and now it’s a lot brighter. I look back, I obey and understand that it will only get better 🙂
