Sometimes on your journey through life you find yourself in some chaotic situations. Now this post isn't for people who haven't experienced turmoil or adversity personally. I am thrilled to share with all 850+ readers who have been visiting my blog checking up from time to time over the past 3 months and I hope that you continue to stay awhile and become inspired which in turn drives you to take action in your own life. Today, this post is for those of you that have stepped out on faith and are actively pursuing your purpose on the mountain tops as well as the valleys. This is for those of you that have been stretched past your comfort zone and look around to find yourself in the thick of things, by yourself. All the comforts and people you used to enjoy or loved to be around have somehow become estranged. You find yourself asking yourself questions like, "Is it me? Did I miss the memo? Where did everybody go?" lol Well let me be the first to tell you (in case you did not know) yes, it is you! :) It is you who has to walk your own destiny out. No one can do it for you, no one else other than you. You have to be the one to encourage yourself to keep pushing even when you feel like throwing in the towel. You have to be the person (through Christ) to lift yourself up in spite of what the situation looks like all around you. Trust the process, if I cannot offer you any other piece of valuable advice please just trust the process! Pursuing your purpose is an everyday action, your purpose is not the destination in which you dream of arriving at, it is the character, integrity, and resiliency you begin to develop in the adversity and during difficult times. Your purpose is taking a break and spending time with your child or children and giving them your unconditional love, it is taking a minute to stop and look at the sky with your son (or daughter) at night to point out the stars and the moon and reveling in the magnitude of the constellation of the stars in the sky and how brightly they shine all night long and the amusement my son brings me as he enthusiastically points and says, "OooOo the mooooon!!!" :) lol. After I point it out to him two or three times repeatedly.
The reason I can confidently tell you that your victory is in the extraordinarily difficult parts of the process is because I know from experience. To be honest, the only reason why things seem to be extraordinarily difficult is because you're a human being and your emotions are causing you to feel bad about the circumstances. I am so glad that emotions aren't real indicators of what the outcome will be. Trigonometry and I have had a wonderful time getting to know each other this semester, at times -_- (can you pick up on my sarcasm?). Had it not been for the MANY times I didn't get the practice quiz grades I'd expected and the fact that I had to almost set up a permanent residence in my professor's office and attend the multiple Friday 2-hour review sessions, in spite of how I felt about learning the material. I wouldn't be able to tell you today that I finally achieved an A on an important quiz andddd that I was able to help TEACH a couple of my classmates during a study session how to solve a couple of problems as well as give them some quick tips to help them better understand the material because I too, understood and shared in their frustrations. So stick with it! Don't give up, God's grace will sustain you and it is able to keep you from falling. Wishing you all the best and continued success!
