Life is full of ups and downs, high and lows. How do you handle your life at the low points?
Do you eat until you feel ill? Do you drink until you pass out? Do you become unapproachable or mean to the people that come into your presence? When things are not going the way you expect, how you handle the challenges is key to your ability to get through this season. You see, life will never always be a field of sunflowers or a bed of roses. It might be a swamp of quick sand that you feel is sucking you down.
Question is…how will you get out of this swamp? Do you have a source to help you out of the muck?
You might feel alone, helpless and in despair…
Let me remind you that God is always there! His ways are not our ways so His solution might not look like you expect. However, if you learn to surrender and give up your way for His way, you will find His way is what can give you a new lease on life. He has the answers for you to grow!
When we operate with what we know and how we always flow, doing the same thing and expecting different results will keep us stuck and in uncomfortable situations. But in surrender we let go of our plan for God's plan and now He can bring you something you never expected.
How do I know? I've been there. Stuck in the muck of my bad decisions. When I let go and let God take control; the blessings flowed and washed the muck away, leaving me free and grateful.
Take a chance and surrender to God. Thank Him in advance for His perfect will. His perfect plan to see you through not only the low moments but for being there and bringing you into the high moments.
As you look in the mirror, see possibility and give yourself a smile. There is always an opportunity waiting for you to become BETTER!
