HILLS AND VALLEYS

Suffering is an inevitable part of life. And while there are different severities of suffering, everyone suffers in one way or another. I wouldn’t necessarily say that I am suffering at the moment but I do feel like I’m in a small pit in the valley. To be fair, life has been pretty good to me for the last year or so, granted that I went through a breakup in the beginning of 2017. Things have picked up since then and I’ve had a wonderful time for the remainder of the year.
Now here we are in 2018, and it feels like I’m facing my first hurdle. Right now, everything seems a bit dim – it’s hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel. It’s been quite hard to be away from the comforts of my office. Feeling very overwhelmed even though I know that this temporary move of 4 weeks is for the benefit of the company. That said, I think all my emotions stem from something much deeper. You see, I love structure and routine. As much as I advocate for people to step out of their comfort zones, I still think some structure is necessary. Right now, everything is just a big jumble. I feel like a trapped pigeon at the moment. HAHA!
But even in all the chaos, I know that God is good. All these feelings that I’m feeling are just a temporary transition into what He has next. Sometimes we need to let go of structure and let God – whatever it may be. So that is what I am going to do so that I can get through this season in order to step into a new one.
Today, I choose to let go and to let God because I’m not alone. Today, I will choose to trust God over dwelling on my circumstance.
