If I could share 500 words to inspire, this is the important wisdom I'd want to pass along to others...
God has a plan for all of our lives. We have to stop trying to fight it. You are a unique piece to the puzzle on the earth. Don’t apologize for it, but be proud in what He is through you. Embrace it. Wrestling with the Almighty just takes too long and is too frustrating. When you choose to blaze a trail, others will see you sparkle and they will be inspired to raise their own banners and walk forward in their own lights.
We have to stop trying to compare our treks to those we may see around us. Let people either be a cheerleader to push forward on what God has called you to, or allow them to teach you that you have your own journey to take. You can’t expect intelligent answers from unintelligent people, so don’t let the doubters make you trip. Love them. Hug them. You can’t let bitterness and offense drag you down. Like weighted shoes they can’t go with you on your journey because it will make you grow too tired on your way. Push forward into your own unknown. It is you and only you that will stand before God one day and give an account for your life.
You are never alone. Though sometimes it may feel that you are walking in snow too high and too slippery to make it, God is always there. I’ve seen it all too often, He’s gone before me and cut the path with His own steps. He has done the same for you. You may wonder if He is still there, there are times where you may have to rest and cry, but you will find even in those dark and cold moments you are never alone.
Stopping can never be an option. Regrets are wasted moments and life has to be viewed as too precious to forsake. If you find yourself at an impasse its okay to take a breather, but it’s never okay to quit. The words “I can’t” must become cuss words in your vocabulary. The more you focus on what you think you can’t do, the harder it will become. Keep your head up and in the race. You may feel defeated, but take one step at a time towards your journey. Life happens in seasons. Sometimes you may feel like you’re crawling towards your goal, and sometimes you may feel as if you’re in a sprint. No matter the season you are in, grip tightly to it, and choose to continue forward. You have to walk through the valley, and climb up the mountain before you can stand on its pinnacle.
Enjoy your life. Smell the roses. Dance in the rain. Laugh at yourself. Love people. Take the time to breath. Getting too burdened and too stressed will drag you down. Choose to think positive. Talk positive. The glass can never stay half empty. Choose to be full.
God has awesome plans for your life. Get excited!
