Sometimes in life, we want a new beginning. A fresh start.
Sometimes, the “others” in our life, won’t want this for us. For selfish reasons, they won’t be happy for us as we make changes and head down a different course. They won’t be cheering us on, or supporting us. Even if they love us.
Sometimes, we have to know in our own hearts that what we are doing is right for us and leave it at that. Let that be enough.
If life were perfect, everyone would be on board with every decision we ever made. They’d invest in us and agree with us. But that’s not the case. Wisely so. Sometimes, the “others” in our life know better than us. They see the mine bombs we will have to navigate and they see the web we will have to untangle ourselves from. They simply want to help us avoid getting hurt.
It can be hard to know which voices to listen to. It can be hard to know whose motives are pure and whose are selfish.
Every big decision we make in life needs to be taken into great consideration before decided on. No “rush” choices or changes. No “hasty” departures. But thoughtful prayer. Time. And learning who to trust, and which “advice-givers” don’t have our best interests in mind. It can be tough.
God is always there to listen to our hearts. Always there, to send someone objective into our lives just when we need it the most. Always there to wipe away our tears when hurtful words are aimed our way – and He’s always there. Period. He’s ALWAYS there. If you seek guidance, He’ll give it to you. If you need a new direction in life, He’ll show you how to find it.
He is FOR you. Not sometimes. But always.
