Life happens. We can't always control the way things go because most of life we are surrounded by people and people aren't perfect. Sometimes we can't choose what's going to happen. We can have a plan. Have in our minds the way we want things to happen. Then bam. Life. Maybe you're dating a bum of a boyfriend. Maybe you're married to an uninvolved, nonpresent kind of a man. Maybe worse. Maybe you didn't get to choose your parents and they didn't turn out too great. What if none of that matters now?
We have a choice. Every day we wake up and have a decision to make. Every bed has two sides and we have to decide which side we are getting up on. Are we going to wake up and live in the past. Let the past rule us and control our future. Or. Are we going to wake up and get through it. Move on. Leave the past where it belongs. Behind us. It's not going to be easy. There will be struggles. And we must keep pushing on. Powering through.
God did not give us a spirit of timidity. He gave us a spirit of power, love and self-control(2 Timothy 1:7). Power to overcome, love to forgive those that have hurt us, and self-control so that we can strive to be the kind of person God wants us to be.
Stuff happens. Let's let God help us get over it.
