A Matter of Perspective by Marala Scott

 

It’s so unbelievable that at times, I’m at a loss for words.

If you could only imagine what my relationship with God was like.

I hate my life.

Today, I gave up on having faith in God.

It’s impossible for me to ever say,

“God is all that I need!” and “Everything will be as it should be if you trust in God.”

I learned the hard way.

I’ve tried and trusted.

It is my entire relationship with God that caused me to feel this way,
and anything – anything at all is possible.

What an unbelievable life I am living!

Showing compassion, having faith, love, and respect while investing in others.

I can make a difference.

Really.

Every bit of adversity, pain, and sickness contributed to my perspective.

Just looking at the way this world is and the people in it.

Confessing my sins, asking for forgiveness, giving, helping and praying for others does not make me feel whole.

Trust me when I say,

I had to give up a lot to follow God.

I had to put God first!

Life consistently demands the best of me.

There was so much need that I knew I’d have to give it everything I had.

When I looked at the world,

I didn’t want to stand up and show compassion for others.

Not ever.

Had God abandon me?

I’ve learned the most valuable lessons I won’t ever forget.

In the long run it’s better that way.

I found that walking in faith is challenging.

If you put forth an honest effort, you’ll learn that quickly.

Like me, it won’t take long before you’ll get tired of trying and failing.

And life is waiting with its many lessons.

I am human so I will make poor choices.

If I ask.

Will God really forgive me?

Hanging on to What You Can’t Control Will Only Hurt You

When it comes to those days where nothing seems to be going the way you need it, don’t worry, things will improve once you change your way of thinking. It helps when you step back and allow whatever is unavoidable to happen, especially since it was going to take place regardless. If you did whatever you could to avoid it, but it didn’t make a difference, let it go. Hanging on to what you can’t control will only hurt you. It doesn’t mean accept failure or submit to the problem at hand, it simply means release the burden at that moment so you can gather your thoughts, compose yourself, and take time to rethink the situation or create another strategy.

How do you release it?

  1. Take time to learn how to solve the problem instead of becoming a part of it.
  2. Discuss the situation with someone you trust who gives unbiased and solid advice that will help diffuse your negative mindset.
  3. Don’t discuss a negative situation with negative people.
  4. Step back and take in a breath of fresh air. Go to a movie, listen to music, meditate or do something calming that will help recalibrate your way of thinking.
  5. Look at all sides rather than just yours and give an honest evaluation.
  6. Understand that it’s not the end, especially if you are looking for a positive resolution.

Overreacting can make things worse and talking about it while you are upset is a sure way to overshare thoughts that you may regret later. There’s a lot more you have to do so learn to accept that you cannot control, fix or stop every situation. Sometimes, in that moment it’s hard to believe that it will be okay, but it will.
