A season of laugher and enjoyment for many but a season of sadness and loneliness for others…
Take a moment to think about what I just said…
Now be thankful for your life because I'm sure whoever you are or wherever you are, life can't be as bad as the homeless parent that worries daily about what tomorrow will bring for his/her children or the little girl that lost both her parents on christmas day. Take a glance at life and for once just thank God for the simple reason that you are breathing today.
Life isn't perfect, your life isn't perfect…
My life isn't perfect…
We all have heart breaks at some point but let me just tell you life isn't over because of that boy or that girl that walked out of your life. If anything, thank God that they aren't in it because if they left that means they never belonged there in the first place.
Maybe you aren't going through a heartbreak.. maybe you are that person thats going through family issues during this holiday season. Let me just start by saying, it gets better, trust me. I was in that same position last year for the holidays. Sadness comes to poison the inner you and slowly infects all of you. The thought of being alone comes and next thing you know, it becomes a part of you.
I know what it's like to feel the outer joy of the christmas lights and the christmas songs and simultaneously, feel darkness overpowering every good memory you ever had… Smiling to the world and frowning to yourself because you don't like what you see in the mirror.
I know… I know… Life isn't fair but don't allow your current circumstance to pity yourself. You are so much better than you think you are. Again, life isn't perfect but who are you take away life. If you are reading this, maybe you are that person that God is bringing to my mind as I type. I don't know you and you are totally correct, I don't know your life but today I want to tell you that running from your problems isn't the solution. Covering it up with alcohol, sex, or even the way you dress won't change how you are feeling inside.
Today I encourage you to surrender your life to Jesus Christ. He died on the cross for you and for me. He went through the pain so that you wouldn't so just let go and let God.
This Holiday season take the time to encourage those around you because you never know what someone is going through even when they have a smile on their face. & If you are the person going through the struggle just be grateful because there isn't anything God can't fix. Seems crazy but be thankful because that same exact situation that is hurting you right now is what will make you a even stronger person.
Hold on to hope because great things are coming your way.
Happy Holidays, Everyone!
Be Grateful! <3
