Important life lessons I’ve been learning and struggling through in the past few weeks. Hopefully none of you have gotten tired of these inspirational-based blog posts lately. 🙂 Before I begin, though, I’d like to thank all of you for your immense support and encouragement with me and my little life lately. Yesterday, my Twitter page reached 600 FOLLOWERS!!!!!!!!!!! YAY!!!!!!!!!!! 😀 😀 😀 Wow!!!!!!!! 😀 I feel sooooooooo incredibly blessed and honored that all of you out there would actually take the time, effort, and enjoyment out of everything I have to say in my life, whether it comes to simple advice or writing about writing, cats, knitting, recipes, etc. 🙂 You guys are the best!!! I have the greatest fans in the entire world!!! No words don’t even need saying from any of you. But when I see more and more people following me and see my website stats go farther and farther upward, I feel honored and really touched to share my entire story with the world. So THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂
Okay. So anyway, I’ve been learning lots of new life lessons lately. Every day is a blessing from God, and in the past few weeks, daily I’ve spent reading Bible plans. There are Bible reading plans on my iPhone’s Bible app about anything, really, but I’ve really been going through Bible plans about worry, doubting, anxiety, anger, among others. So if you can’t tell already, despite how encouraging it is to write inspirational blog posts, I’m still struggling with worry, anxiety, and anger. It is a constant struggle, but through every trial I’ve gone through in my whole life, I have found myself successful and willing to overcome every trial. This trial that I am currently enduring has been a struggle, and possibly the longest trial I’ve ever gone through. But so far in this trial, I have discovered many benefits and blessings through it all. I have grown closer to God, learning to rely on Him more than I ever thought possible, and in the process, it has beneficial for gradually, day by day, letting go of worry and stress. This struggle has always brought my husband and I closer in our marriage as we learn to take comfort, encouragement, and support from one another, working through our little struggles as a team like every married couple should. I draw encouragement and comfort from even our cats, and also from friends and family. We have received immense prayers, support, and love through it all, and I am deeply grateful to the ends of the earth for that.
Another thing that this struggle has brought me to realize is to, as the title of this blog post states, never forget or give up on the person that God made me to be. The same advice could be given to anyone else who deals with a trial or hard circumstance in their lives. First and foremost, you don’t lose hope or faith in God, no matter how difficult it gets. Then, you learn to rely and trust your spouse more than anything and more than ever before. Finally, when left alone during the day to bear the day’s troubles, aside from the comfort you receive from God and His Word, you remember to not forget the person God made you to be. God gave you incredible strengths and blessings in life. He designed you perfectly the way He destined you to be. He has taken you out of, and will continue to do so, difficult situations to free you from burdens that are not healthy for you in any way, shape, or form. He has daily reminded me and also constantly of how special I am to Him. He knows what is best for me, and He will never fail me. The unique person he has made me to be, I shall not ever forget the person God wants me to be: strong, capable, independent, patient, controlled, happy, and positive. All these things also bring me comfort as I struggle to gradually come out of the dark tunnel of uncertainty. I see the light at the end of the tunnel, however! There is immense hope.
I refuse, absolutely refuse, to give up hope. Giving up is letting Satan win! Remember that. And remember that all good things are possible with our Heavenly Father 🙂
Love to you all! Have an enjoyable week 🙂 God willing, I should have wonderful news to provide to you by my next blog post next week.
