I came to a realization today. Maybe not exactly a realization, but it was definitely a "come to Jesus" moment. I am constantly reminding others about the amazingly unique person God has created them to be. But recently, it seems I'd lost sight of exactly who He created me to be.
I've been struggling with confusion, doubt, fear, and anger. I've questioned my worth and considered giving up on a lot. I've felt hopeless on several occasions. While sharing the message of God's hope, love, mercy, and grace with others, somehow I forgot that He has those things for me too!
What had me so lost? Often the enemy will use anyone and anything he can to drive a wedge between us and the things God has for us. Normally, I have a good defense ready to thwart the arrows of the enemy. Lately, not so much. I have been physically and emotionally drained. And despite my pleas for life to slow down, it just kept coming hard and heavy. My prayer life had been lacking and my study habits... Well... I was surprised yesterday when I found my Bible while cleaning out the back of my car. :/ It's no wonder I've felt like my world was falling apart.
That said, I'm ready to get back on track. I don't know about you, but I don't like feeling like life is spinning out of control!
Can you relate? If so, I challenge you to take a long hard look at your currant situation and ask God to show you what changes you need to make to get back on track. Then, just do it!
