This Too Will Pass

Yesterday, I had to sit at God's feet. Been a while since I did that. I did not have words. They would not be enough. Because He knows just how confused I am right now. I hate being confused...

I put my head on His knee. "I have not been able to pray"  I said. " really pray".

So, today that I finally get to be here, these are the words I long to say.

" I know there is a long road ahead of me. I know You promised to always be there. But what do I do at times such as these. When I feel I am stuck at a point. When I cannot see beyond what is in front of me. When things seem to be happening and passing me by. When I give and do not get back. When I love but things just do not work out. When my best does not feel good enough. When...when...when..."     

I look up at Him and hear those words still.

This too will pass.

The past couple of weeks have been interesting in my life. I have learnt some lessons and I want to share:

1. Not everyone will get it.
2. Sometimes the people who mind do not matter and the people who matter do not mind.
3. "No" is not such a terrible word.
4. Words spoken out loud are usually a reflection of the thoughts in our head.
5. Create boundaries in relationships.
6. Do not let people confine you to a space and then humiliate you.
7. Learn to share.
8. Follow God's simple instructions.
9. Guard your heart with all diligence. Be careful who you let in.
10.Some things are allowed but not all of them will benefit you.
11.Some people are meant to be links in your life. Recognize them.
12. When you are confused, run to God.
13. It is okay to cry sometimes.
14. Do not share your dreams with everyone.
15. Your giving is tested when you do not have.
