“Bottom line: God will not allow any person to keep you from your destiny. They may be bigger, stronger, or more powerful, but God knows how to shift things around and get you to where you’re supposed to be.”
– Joel Osteen.
Reminding myself this each and every day has become a feat that I am finding extremely hard. In the past couple of years, I’ve come to realize that sometimes life takes a turn you weren’t expecting, and everything just snowballs from there.
I can honestly say that sometimes, giving up just seems like the only option, but, trust me, it’s not. God will never put obstacles in our live’s that He knows we cannot handle. Everything that happens is happening for one reason or another, and He is with you through each and every step.
Sometimes it feels like you’re alone and there’s no one there to help you through situations, but you just have to take a step back and breathe. Because God is with us through everything, even when we feel alone. He’s standing at your back, ready to catch you when you fall – you just have to be willing to trust in Him.
So when life gets tough, close your eyes, take a deep breath, and fall into His arms. It’s like an exercise I had to do at camp: all of your group stands below you and you have to trust that they will catch you, because they will. Life is like that four foot platform that we had to stand on: once on top of it, it seems much larger than in reality. Life is all about perspective. You can either look at you problems in utter fear and succumb to them, or you can face them head on, trusting that, no matter what, God has your back.
