Peaceful Past

Oftentimes, I sit in awe and smile at how far I’ve come. Not just financially and physically, but my overall development. I used to be grief stricken over anything negative that happened to me. I would sit and harbor resentment over what was, and that kept me ill-prepared for what was coming. If God closed a door, I cried, and tried my best to pry it back open. If I applied for a job and didn’t get an interview or the position, I cried, wishing they’d call to say, “We made a mistake.” If people walked away from me, I cried, and wondered what I’d done wrong, when God had removed them to make my traveling light. When an phenomenal opportunity would pass me by, I cried, because I just knew it was for me.

I was bitter for many years, because I kept grieving over things I’d lost, but had no control of. I was carrying around the weight of my past, not realizing, it was holding me back from my future. I held new relationships to old relationship standards, until the new had now become old, because there was a constant comparison between the two. My attitude was poor towards almost everything, until I realized the one thing that I needed to do, make peace with my past. When my attitude towards what happened changed, the biggest change occurred, which was me! I might not be happy with how a lot of things transpired, but I’m happy I was able to finally find my peace.

You’ve cried enough! Stop grieving over failed friendships, relationships, and closed doors, because God is about to open things up for you.

Until next time my NOTE takers!
