365 Days of Reflection Towards God’s Love and Acceptance
~June 4, 2014-June 3, 2015~
Day 49-Wellington, Florida:
There are points and moments in our lives where things do not go as we plan. This can be hard to understand and have multiple reactions as a result when something goes wrong. We can become angry, upset, and lash out at those around us trying to vent in every way possible. This is not fair to those we are hurting that are around us in the process, which are also the people who love us the most. Even worse we lash out at God, when we feel that we were wronged even in the slightest.
When things calm down and we really look back at the circumstance we can see why in retrospect the blame should be squarely placed on the bad decision that we made. We all make mistakes and sometimes we over compensate for situations that occur in our lives. Blaming others does not solve anything and in these moments faith is more important than ever. God understands when we fall down that it is extremely difficult to stand back up. Taking the time to breathe and pray to Jesus for mercy will save your friends and family a lot of unnecessary grief along with helping us to have a clear train of thought about how we can make a better decision in the future.
It is easier said than done and it some cases you may be at whit’s end when something goes wrong at a critical moment in your life. The one thing to remember is that what seems so important today will be not so important tomorrow. In life there are many valleys and streams that we will encounter. When you hold onto God in these moments instead of trying to swim upstream you will notice a big difference in the final outcome. You can lose a battle, but ultimately win the war by putting your trust in Jesus.
