Life has a way of teaching you the lessons you need to be taught, many times without your awareness. I recently have been humbled by events in my life that have caused me to realize that I don’t always make good decisions about the most important of things.
You think you’re doing well in life…everything seems to be going well and you have no reason to question what you’re experiencing. And then, over time, your situations change and you make decisions based on emotions you’re feeling at the time. Decisions that affect not only you, but others as well. And those decisions can cause unwarranted pain for others, which was never your intention.
Later on down the road, you have other circumstances come into play because of other decisions you’ve made and you are humbled to realize how very human you are. Capable of making mistakes, some larger than others, that cause your life to change forever. I’d like to say that it was all for the sake of teaching you important lessons, but that’s just my take on things. In the meantime, there are others you’ve left in your path that are suffering as well.
So just for today, I’m humbling myself with the situations I’ll be facing over the next several weeks. I know that change many times provokes fearful feelings and there are plenty of those that have been occupying my mind. But at the same time, I also realize that I don’t have control over a lot of what has transpired and what will transpire over the next several days and weeks.
Above all else, I’m reminded not to ever lost contact with my spiritual being. The decisions I’ve made when not in close contact with my God have traditionally not turned out well. It takes times and events such as those I face to help you realize never to lose sight of the sunlight of the Spirit.
So I pray this day for God’s guidance, wisdom, and strength…I pray for those whose lives I have left with unanswered questions, that they will experience happiness beyond compare. Meanwhile, I face my tomorrow and the next with uncertainty and anxious thoughts and more mindful to be careful with the direction I choose in this life.
