How Did I Get Here

Who do you turn too, when the secrets and pain become unbearable? Who do you turn too, when you’ve given it your all with no results? How do you stop the pain from seeping out of your pores? How do you hold it all together, when you really just want to throw in the towel? You may be asking yourself these same exact questions and seeking answers without any resolve.

Most of us have two lives. The life we live and the unlived life within us. If we are unwilling to identify, and then confront, the issues in our lives, we cannot live a joyful, purposeful, and fulfilling life. I certainly know that to be true in my personal life from past experiences.

We are afraid to love, to bury our past, to trust, to allow ourselves to become vulnerable to someone else because we are too afraid to be hurt again. When we allow the pain of our past to prevent us from being all God wants us to be, we are cheating God and we are cheating ourselves.

We wear our wounds on our sleeves like a badge of shame. What we may not realize is that our wounds get in the way, but they may also be in the way of others around us. I have seen first- hand how past wounds can cripple our futures. Love isn’t the only thing that can wound us; fear, rejection, disappointments, and sometimes, just life in general can inflict wounds.

The reality of life is this, as we journey throughout this life, we will get hurt. It’s evitable that we are destined to be hurt in one way or another. This world is not designed for our own personal comforts. We will run into brick walls, be forced to take a path that may be full of potholes, or forced to journey into places that are beyond our comfort zones.

Things that we strive for may not ever be within our reach. Disappointments will always be waiting for us around the corner. However, until we learn to allow our wounds to heal, we will forever be held hostage by our past. You can rise above your past. You can choose to stay where you are, or decide that you want something better and you are ready to move and take that stand. I am not saying that it’s that easy, but are you willing to take the steps necessary to receive your healing?

If you can take the first step, that’s a start in the right direction. Each day focus on leaving something behind and bury it without looking back. You can’t keep looking back if you are seeking to move ahead. Press on. Each day becomes a new beginning for growth and strength. Think new and positive thoughts. Trust God to give you the ability to overcome. God wants to take you to the next level. Envision the new improved you, for you hold the key to your success. Speak the word and bring your alignment with what God says about you, that you are created in His image. Take a leap into your future.
