It’s not a matter of how life will go but what opportunities, obstacles and memories will we make? How do we get through life accepting the good with the bad and continuing to move forward ready for the next adventure? Unfortunately, we cannot predict what happens but we can trust in the one who knows all. We can believe and trust in God to help us Navigate The Highs and Lows of Life.
There is always a period of time that can be reflected on when everything was great in every area. Relationships were intact, our favorite people were alive and well, our jobs were perfect and life was beautiful. Then there are other times where life is difficult and even a struggle in one area of life seems to have a domino effect in all other areas. Like the older people say When it rains it pours. But when these times arise, good and bad, high and low, how do we act or do we just react? Who do we depend on and what type of person are we when these events occur? And most importantly how do we get through it?
Although I have totally and fully committed myself to living for God, I do not have a smooth sailing life. My life is filled with challenges, accomplishments, highs and lows. When I am feeling overwhelmed, burnt out with 20 million things on my to-do list, I have to take a moment to take a deep breath and say God please help me. I say these words because I know He listens and anticipates everything that I will ask. I know that He has everything I need. I know that He cares about everything I care about and is always in the details. I know that He loves me and wants me to be my best self. I know He can and He will help me Navigate the Highs and Lows of Life!
You may not understand but as I have written before try Him for yourself. Ask God to help you in all situations and areas of life. Don’t make Him the last resort but your first go-to for wisdom and navigation! God has never let me down, never left me alone when I thought I was and He has never given up on me. I want to encourage you to try something other than a substance to relieve your stress and to help with your anxiety. For God has all that we need today and forevermore!
It is so easy to blame God for what is going on in your life. The most asked question of God has to be Why? I am saying this because I’ve asked this question many times. As I have mentioned in previous posts, we have a part to do in this life. Our part includes making good decisions and learning from our mistakes, treating people with kindness and humility, forgiving and loving others. Ask Yourself Am I doing my part? When we don’t do our part or we get distracted from the path of God’s instructions that’s when we can invite evil in, as well as opportunities for human error. No one is perfect but with God you will never be lost, confused or headed down the wrong path.
Allow yourself to grow, to change for the better and to focus on God and the plan He has for your life. Allow yourself to accept the main tool needed to successfully live this life, a heart for God. Our minds can have things filtered in and out but our hearts are where pureness lives. Ask God to search your heart and help you Navigate the Highs and Lows of Life!
