How to Find Peace in Difficult Times?
Who wants to be peaceful when there is so much chaos and confusion all around you daily? Finding peace in the midst of confusion is not something that we often do and that is just the reality of it, well at least that tends to be my reality lately.
Recently I was challenged with a devastating truth that broke my heart. Someone that I cared about very deeply turned out to be someone that I no longer recognized or loved the way that I use to because of the deception that was created and it eventually led to manipulation, lies, and just straight out unacceptable and unimaginable behavior that I will not tolerate or accept.
I was devastated and heartbroken to say the least and I had to find peace right in the midst of the storm, blizzard, and hurricane. After a few days; 2 days to be exact I quickly got myself together and started to pick myself up and deal with this situation like a woman that knows her value and knows her worth should handle anything that comes her way expected or unexpected.
First, I took a few steps back just to evaluate the entire situation with a clear mind, no anger or animosity. After getting a little more clarity I started to pray about the situation and asking GOD for answers and also forgiving the individual that hurt me. I trusted GOD’s Word and I trusted GOD’s timing, Finally I trusted myself and I forgave myself.
We all make mistakes some of us make mistakes every day and it’s really ok it’s called life. If you never struggle or go through anything you never grow. Sometimes things have to go wrong for things to go right there are times when things just simply have to change. I feel so much better now I feel FREE mentally, physically and emotionally. I can definitely say that I am 100% a better person because of this situation, because of this I am much wiser, recognizing my worth more than ever and last but least Trusting GOD through the process.
The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged."
