Being Single isn’t always the cup of tea that we think it should be, after a time we start to feel alone, others are out on dates and enjoying their relationship life while we may well be home on the couch watching tv.. in this blog I want to take some time to discuss the The Downside of the single life.
Our lives are full of history, filled with past and present events, like our first scratch on the knee, playing outside, our first bike ride, Our first kiss, that first relationship followed by the first heartbreak, our first jobs, our first real taste of the world. All these events that have served as a brick or the bricks that have led to the lives we have today.
As adults, sometimes we roll back the curtains of memory and get stuck remembering the bad things,
It’s important to not focus too much or get caught up in the negative things that have occurred in life, we must be sure to snap back to reality and separate who we were then from who we are in this time.
Philippians 3:13 (New living translation) says:
No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead.
Though I believe we shouldn’t look back, I do believe that we should take the time to reflect, to remind ourselves of how far we’ve come. God knows that as adults we do get discouraged and need a nudge every now and again or even a gentle self reminder that we’ve come a long way and that we’ve done things right along the way which should encourage us to stay on the right path
Sometimes we forget or lose track of why we’re still going, we forget what we set out to accomplish, it is In these times that we have to remind ourselves that the journey, although as rocky and as discouraging or as rough as it may be, is worth it.
As life moves on and continues from day to day and year to year, don’t look back, don’t let whatever the mountains are in your life cause you to give up, continue to look forward. Onward and outward because your destiny is waiting for you.
Allow me to leave you with this, it was Maya Angelo who said:
I am that Tree planted by the River,
Which will not be moved.
I, the Rock, I the River, I the Tree
I am yours–your Passages have been paid.
Lift up your faces, you have a piercing need
For this bright morning dawning for you.
History, despite its wrenching pain,
Cannot be unlived, but if faced
With courage, need not be lived again.
Lift up your eyes upon
This day breaking for you.
Give birth again
To the dream.
” The only reason you should look back is to see how far you’ve come”
It is my hearts prayer that someone really understands this blog.
It’s one thing to love and have love in some form or fashion in your life, but it is just as important to allow yourself to BE LOVED.
…some people feel like they are unloved, unlovable or not worthy of love but; the truth is… it doesn’t matter who you are, how far you’ve fallen, what your feelings are or whatever the case may be,the simple fact is that you are worth being loved.
You might feel like a screw up or like you’ve done to much or are now out of reach or place but please remember this.. Love that is real love is Redemptive!
No one is beyond receiving love. Each and every day and more than likely every moment of the day we FAIL Christ BUT HE continues to LOVE and to LOVE and to LOVE until we finally get it!!!!!!!! That is the definition of love, That’s what you call unconditional love, It’s not based off of Merritt or warrant but rather it’s love because YOU are worthy of it!
So today, know that you are so worth it… all you have to do is open your ♥ heart to let it in, don’t feel embarrassed or second guess it, be free to receive it, let love heal you where you hurt, let love wash the pain away, let love do a perfect work in your life.
