Today, I Realized…

We cannot make others happy. We cannot make others believe the best about us. We can only trust that God will open the paths that lead to a common ground.

Today, I realized how much I appreciate my Heavenly Father’s perfect love for me. If I were completely dependent upon others for validation and affirmation, I realize how completely deficient I would be. I believe this is why my Father seeks to have this type of exclusive relationship with each of His children. He knows that people are fickle and can change like the direction of the wind within a matter of seconds. If this being the case, then why do we find it so difficult to trust in Him wholeheartedly?…

I believe there is an internal code that makes us want to believe in the overall good within each person. This is in spite of the previous experiences we may have had with the person. We believe that some people genuinely care about our well-being without any conditions attached.

The love of Christ within constrains me, and causes me to see them through my Father’s eyes as another soul in need of a Savior just I am. It makes me look beyond their faults and see their need for Christ instead of the need for my judgment over their current state…

Today, I realized that I am in need of a moment with my Father. I need Him to speak to me. My heart longs to feel His presence within. I need to feel His love and affirmation today because I do not feel like a warrior. I do not feel surrounded by Him on all sides. My head knowledge of the fact that He is always with me will not suffice. I need to find a place away from everyone else to hear Him speaking to me. He brings me peace…
