Did you ever ask yourself how many times you wanted to control something that you couldn't? The truth is we all want to control things. Nobody likes the fact of not knowing where they are going. But this is how your faith is being tested. It is easy to like the beginning and the end of a project but it is complicated to stay calm, in joy, patient when in the middle.
The good news is that we can let go of how we think something should happen and just surrender. Only God knows why, how and when everything will fall into place.
We need to understand that sometimes we just cannot control certain situations. And controlling them will cause us to be unhappy and force things that we should not force.
A couple of days ago, I was watching Chelsea Handler during an interview she had. She was asked what she would write if she had to write to her younger self. At the very end of the video something took my attention. She said: “The best thing you could do is to enjoy the struggle of the unknown because you will have the life you have always dreamed of”. After her message, I was happy to know that it is okay not to know everything. It is very normal if you feel like you haven’t figured out everything in your life because there is always something waiting for you beyond the life you have imagined. When you do things that look crazy, big or exceptional to you. By that I mean things that you cannot do on your own. That's when you know that God's grace, favor has stepped in your life and that He has been leading you all the way long.
The last two years have been crazy for me. I have done things that I couldn’t do by myself. The right people coming into my life, discovering talent I did not know I had. But I know that all of that came from God. Having the certitude that he only wants the best for me showed me how to wait on HIM and not to rush things. Suddenly things that were so important to me became less important or less dramatic. What I am trying to tell you is that when you reach your limits you will learn how to trust and depend on God. Why spending your time convincing people to like you, to believe in you or to support you? Nope, this is not your battle. So why just not stay peaceful knowing that we serve a Father who won't let us down.
