I have made lots of bad decisions lately, and they were big, which means the screw-ups were monumental. Trust me. It's no joke being a young adult with the whole world ahead of you and no clue how to handle it.
Priorities and responsibilities change suddenly once you are out on your own.
On the one hand, you feel you have more control over your life now that your parents have left you to decide what to do with your life. But on the other hand, you really have no idea how to make the right decision.
That volatile combo inevitably leads to making many bad decisions. And I have had more than my fair share.
Unlike when you were with your parents, you have no one to keep you from making the wrong move. A few disappointments later, you realize that being an adult is no joke.
Everything seems to get out of control, and you doubt yourself and become less sure-footed.
You realize the grand plan you had for your life will not take you anywhere. You have to go back to the drawing board, although you are still unsure of the best plan to make for your life.
Panic And Confusion Overwhelms You After Every Mistake
You withdraw, and then you realize there is someone who has always been there for you–God.
Upon this realization, I put my trust in Him, and I finally found some peace.
I was still swimming in the chaos, but I had the assurance that no mistake would mess up my life for good as long as I put my trust in Him.
And so, once again, I took risks. Some worked out and others didn't.
But you know what?
It didn't matter because as long as God was on my side; I was sure I had the opportunity to rise again and keep moving forward.
And I also learned another thing: I had to learn to find contentment in everything; good or bad.
God Makes The Good Out Of The Bad
I've realized that when everything seems to be going to hell, something amazing is about to happen.
As it turns out, there is a silver lining in every cloud of disappointment and despair, and with God, you will see it clearly.
And so, I have made the decision to be fearless in the face of calamities. I will be brave and I will take risks.
I am weak, and I have finally accepted that. I cannot win this battle on my own.
But as long as I don't give up the fight, God will be by my side to guarantee a glorious victory.
I Can Do All Things As Long As I Have God On My Side
He is my confidant when I need to express my innermost thoughts and ambitions. He has the power to grant my wishes and prayers.
And He is my comfort and my restorer when I am facing the darkest moments in my life.
Whenever There Is A Dark Cloud In My Life, My God Is My Silver Lining
He has a good plan for my life and I know it will prevail regardless of what comes my way. And so, I have nothing but gratitude for all the things he has done for me.
I no longer care about the struggles. God always comes through for me.
Everything happens for a reason, and God knows the purpose for every tribulation you go through. Like me, I urge you to let Him be your silver lining.
