Moment of Honesty
I know that I have written about my struggles before, but I will continue to write about them because I feel that it is important to share your story during the process of healing.
As most of you know, I lost my grandma a year and a half ago. Things have not been the same since. I have days where I just want to lay in the bed and cry all day. It happens. Life happens. I have days when I have absolutely no motivation or drive to do anything. I feel sad and lost.
Most of the time, I am able to talk to myself, pray and change my mood. But there are times when I need someone to encourage me. I thank God for placing those people in my life to be there when I need them.
I really want others to understand that in the midst of everything positive that I have going on in my life and how I try to encourage others through my blog, I sometimes struggle with encouraging myself. I am not perfect. I am human. I hurt, I feel, and I experience emotions just like everyone else.
I have learned that I can't be ashamed to express how I am feeling. I've realized that my story just may encourage someone else. There is power in your testimony. I know for a fact that God is able to do exceedingly and abundantly above what you ask for.
Although you may have bad days, don't allow yourself to stay there. At some point, you have to pick yourself up and keep moving. But you don't have to do it alone. The bible says that all you need is faith the size of a mustard seed for God to move mountains.
No matter what you are going through, know that your pain will not last forever. Don't be afraid to reach out for help. Share with others what God is doing in your life. And as always, smile.
