Jeremiah 29:11-13 ; For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.”
at times my faith weakens,
i let certain situations and materialistic substances in this world cloud my vision and i lose sight of what really matters. Nothing in this life lasts forever. When life is “good”, sometimes i find myself becoming infatuated with ideas, and aspirations that matter only to shallow, selfish, greedy, materialist people. I catch myself slipping, falling closer to the false promises that this world has to offer, and farther away from what God wants me to be, and what He wants me to do.My head gets blown up with the idea that i have total control over my life, and that i can decide how things go. i have tendencies to plan precisely, but not once have my plans gone accordingly. my realization is no; i cannot control what happens to me, nor can i control how things unravel themselves. I can’t control the outcome of situations, and I can’t control who will stay, who fades away, who will become my next closest friend one day, then leave the next.i cannot control who likes me and who doesn’t. I do not have complete control over what might happen tomorrow or the next day. And even though i tell myself i don’t need anyone, i can’t do things alone. i can’t do anything alone.
i need to start over.
I need to learn to Let go, and Let God.
