There are times in which paths can be treacherous. In which the unknown can steer you away from changes, from betterment.
Throughout my journey, I’ve been asking Him for guidance, for grace, for honesty, for the right path.
We don’t know how He works. We know only to ask, for He will give. If your heart is kind and honest, and your intentions are true, He will give you the strength you need, and protect you.
When I ask for His help, the protection I need is usually from myself. I’m the one that plants the seed of doubt, the seed of worthlessness, of unfitness.
My own self is my worst enemy. And there’s no enemy quite like yourself. The one that whispers all the insecurities in your ears, the one who fires all your flaws back at you to hold you back.
To make you think you’re not enough, to make you believe you need to stay put. That for some reason, you don’t deserve happiness.
I’ve gotten tired of listening to that voice.
He has shown me that it takes courage, it takes faith. It takes believing in His plan, not yours. He will show you the correct way, He will calm your worries. But not because you want it, but because it is His plan.
I was guided to these choices. And there is much more I feel in my heart I can do. And should do.
This is the time. The time for changes. The time to give my worries to the Lord, and forge the path He wants of me. It is with joy, and a willing heart that I welcome it.
