Have you ever walked out of you house when you have been annoyed? There are many times when you want to give up with things, you want to just walk out and leave things as they are, you want to move on, you think things are better with someone else or somewhere else. You think life is greener on the other side because you see other people happy, you see other people having a better time than you, you see other people relaxed, you see other people with a smile on their faces. You think everything is well because they haven’t given up, they haven’t used up all their energy trying to fix things. However, in reality you don’t know what is going on in their lives, they may be having a hard time, they may be going through a rough patch, they may think the grass is greener on your side.
We all have issues that we have to deal with and we all have things that we think that would be better if we are out of them, we may want a different job, we may want to be in a different marriage, we may want to have better behaved children, we may want to have more money, we may want to sell everything we have and start again, we may want to get rid of things that are hard for us but we need to stop and think whether it is something that we want to do and whether is will be worth it in the future. Everything that we do and everything that we go through is totally worth the hardships because we learn through our experiences and we learn that we can go through things that we didn’t think that we could.
In order to get through the hardships in life you need to have people around you who can help you, you need to have people around you who can protect you, you need to have people around you who you can talk to, you need to have people around you who you can laugh with, you need to have people around you who you can go out with, you need to have people around you who can be honest with you, you need to have people around you who can love you, you need to have people around you who can be patient with you, you need to have people around you who can see the bigger picture, you need people who can help you see the best in you, you need people who can help you to know that God is in control and He will look after you no matter what comes your way. There will be times when you don’t speak to these people very much but you need to know that they will be there and you can turn to them at anytime you would like and they can turn to you too.
We all need a friend or someone we can turn to when things get hard, we all need a friend that we can turn to to help us in the state that we are in. There will be many times in our life when we want to give up but it is important that we do not give up, it is important that we reach out to other people, it is important that we tell people how we are feeling, it is important to know that we are not in charge but God is, God will help us to overcome our fear, God will help us to keep on going. No matter what we go through we go through things for a reason, we go through things because we can learn from them, we go through things so that we are able to rely on God. We need to trust in all the promises that God has given to us and we need to really truly believe what is going on.
Sometimes it is hard to realise that God has our best interests at heart but He really does, He knows what He is doing with our life, He knew what we would be like before we were born, He knew that hardships would come and He will stick by us, He knows that we will sometimes fail but He will be there with open hands, He knows that we see grass as greener on the other but He will help us to know that with Him we have everything we need and He will provide for us.
