Late Night Thoughts

Some nights so many thoughts flood into my mind that I can’t sleep…thoughts, literally, about everything!  Hopes and dreams, passed events, troubles and sorrows, joys and inspirations; everything.

Life is confusing and so much time is spent not looking further then the distance of your personal bubble.  Does that make sense?  We think we know so much, or I do sometimes, but really our perspective is such a short distance and so blinded by the distractions of life and this world and everything we “have to do” and all the things we “don’t have time for” etc.

We have plenty of time.  We have nothing to fear or fret.  We have full lives even when they seem completely empty.  We have a choice in everything whether we think so or not.  In order to do something you either choose to do it or your choice is not to do it!  As long as we do and seek the things that bring joy to our hearts our lives are full.  There should be no fear at all because Jesus has saved us and the evil one has been defeated and can do nothing more but toil with our minds.  And we always have time because all time is God’s and He is infinite and eternal and everything is done in His perfect timing whether it seems that way or not.

A goal, if you will, that I have for this year and for my life really, is to just DO things!  Start meeting people and getting involved with things.  Start exercising and taking care of myself because as the Bible says my body, the body, is a temple (1 Corinthians 6:19-20) and you deserve to feel good and be healthy!  Apply for a job that may be different but is something you want to try.  Take up any opportunities whether they be great or small.  Stand up for what you believe in.  Most importantly do not fear because fear will get you no where and will keep you stuck forever if you allow it to hold you back and control your every opinion, decision and action.  Just do it!

That has been put on my heart so heavily and my friend actually found a shirt that says “Just Do It” so we both bought one and it’s very encouraging.

It’s so easy to look at all the bad things and outweigh the bad from the good especially when you are a pessimist…like me.  I’m a pessimist and an extremely negative person when I leave God out of my life and allow my thoughts and feelings to take over and OTHER peoples opinions; I strongly believe it is so important to have a mind of your own and to think for yourself.  Think for yourself, be respectful to other people about there opinions, and be confident in your own opinions.  That’s something I am definitely still working on.

Seek the goodness in every moment.  It is easy to immediately find the crappy things or moments in life when you are doubtful, depressed, fill in the blank, but it is SO worth it when you seek the good things that make you happy and bring you joy and peace.  Just take a deep breath and do it.  You never know, most likely there is a friend, a relative or even a sibling or someone who is super close to you who may be struggling with the same thing.  I say that because we don’t have to be discouraged about being “alone” because we are not!  Even if we don’t know if anyone around is is or has been going through the same things, we always have GOD who is there, He IS there, and we don’t have to worry or anything.  I wish these simple words could be more convincing and I hope they are encouraging!  I’m saying these things to encourage myself as well someone who happens across this post.  (Also to add on to not being alone…don’t be afraid to talk to people or ask for encouragement, accountability or help!  Communication is KEY!  I’m pretty sure that’s why we, humans, talk is because it is necessary and important to communicate!  Anyway…)

The truth is, God is good, He has overcome and loves us and is always there for us, and we need to realize that!  No matter what your situation is or circumstance or problem, etc etc etc, we have to remember and realize that He loves us, oh how He loves us…if you have come across my blog, hello and welcome first off, secondly if you do not know Jesus I just want to kindly encourage you that it is worth everything in life and more to know Him.  Blessings to you and may God bless and direct your life down His path and in His perfect timing.  Much love.
