Being emotionally stable doesn’t come naturally. I struggle to cope with the disappointments of life and the thoughts of not being/doing enough.
I often know what I want, and I also know what I don’t want. Yet, the way in which complacency and comfort steal my drive is quite often the source of my disappointment.
Achieving, thriving, succeeding, is not something that happens by chance. Having a vision for me comes naturally. I can see it in my mind, feel it in my body, but executing is a different story.
“Take small steps” they say. In fact, I often advise people who may be struggling in life to just take “one day at a time”.
But the reality is that time doesn’t wait on you. It keeps moving and each day that goes by may take with it opportunities to achieve something you were created for.
What were you created for? Are you enjoying life? Is life what years ago you thought it would be today?
We all have regrets. We have the “I wish I would have”, “could have”, “should have”. But we can’t do anything about them anymore.
All we have is today.
So what if today we decide to bring all of our dysfunctional emotions to Jesus? He knows what we need. And He knows how to give it to us. But just like achieving, thriving, and succeeding doesn’t happen by chance, surrendering must also be intentional.
What if we lay down our plans, our dreams, our desires to the Lordship of Jesus?
It is true, God has the world in His hands. He can take care of us too.
I need Him to come and heal my emotions. It will not happen by chance.
God, come and heal my damaged emotions and guide me into your plan for my life, amen.
