This is the most uncomfortable area we fear to visit. There is fear of discovering who we really are; and this is the scariest truth we don’t want to know. But somewhere somehow we get to be there. The things we think about, the things we are told, the way we receive and process things and how we end up walking that lane sifting, processing and absorbing things like a wet sponge is what gets us there. We don’t choose to be there it’s a process.
Thinking about it, how many times do we agree with our thoughts of who we discover to be? How often do we accept the truth about ourselves? There is a difference in knowing or rather discovering and accepting who we are. That process of discovery may seem to be easy but accepting is another chapter. I call it a chapter because I can go on and on about this process. It does not happen over night. Accepting one self is a journey. Along this journey we try and fall over again; pick ourselves up shake off the dust and go; and fall again. But what we should keep on doing is not to lose hope or get tired to try again. This is what I have learned. Learn to trust the process. We may fall several times but the refining process does not stop. It keeps doing it’s job until the Refiner is satisfied that He has done his job and the one refined is ready to be a new-be.
Today I want to say to you:
Take courage, keep doing that exercise. Cry, be angry at yourself for being you, find that moment to reflect and understand that area / angel that you keep falling from. Focus on it with your prayer and request to God. Allow God to speak to you and guide you. Wait in patience and trusting; be obedient to the prompting of the Holy Spirit because nothing is a coincidence about our lives. We live according to a set plan
