I know you feel like you alone knows what is going on in your heart.

That you are alone in this fight. I know that you don’t think that anyone understands you and you feel alone in this world. Maybe you’re the one taking all the hits or you have to pick up everyone else’s mess. Maybe you desperately need someone to hold you, or remind you that you are amazing. That you are unique. That you are LOVED.

“Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest.”

~Matthew 11:28

Life has a tendency to get complicated.

It likes to throw us curveballs. No matter how detailed a plan we make, nine times out of ten something is going to go wrong. Count on it. And even when we make Plans B, C, D and E, when the time comes, something happens throwing everything up in the air. But as the saying goes, if you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans.

Those are the days we need to embrace our faith. Remind ourselves that we are not alone. Those are the days that are meant to remind us that alone we are nothing. They say that God saves the hardest battles for His strongest soldiers. But I don’t think I agree. He doesn’t save the hardest battles for the strongest soldiers, He gives us the exact battles we need to teach us to be stronger, to remind us to just trust in Him.

Those days are the days where we most need to remember to stop, to listen to the silence. To remember that we are not alone no matter how hard it might seem to believe. No matter how lost we might be, He will pick up our broken pieces and make us whole again.

I don’t know what is happening.

I can’t imagine what you might be struggling with. But you are not alone. God knows exactly what is happening in your heart. God can see the struggles you are going through and is waiting for you to hand everything over to Him. He is waiting for you to surrender to Him. We cannot see His plan for us but he does have a plan.

You are not alone, you are loved beyond your wildest dreams. You might not see why right now, but one day you will look back and understand the path you’ve had to take to become the amazing, strong and fabulous person you are today. Hand everything over to Him, He will do great things with your life.
