Happy July all. I hope you are all well. Summer is here and has been here and more beautiful than ever. The heavens have surely blessed us with the warm rays.
I have been in great thought about the statement ‘Lean On‘ it has been nagging my brain for so long but I just didn’t have the strength or motivation to share it until now. I could use a bit of light and assurance in the new month ahead. We all get burnt out sometimes, some more than others. But that don’t mean we give up. How many of you have felt disappointed because they relied on the wrong people? The thing is it’s not about relying on the wrong people but it’s about relying on people.
I am not saying we shouldn’t rely on people like our loved ones, friends, the ones we trust with our lives with but looking at the bigger picture who are we meant to really rely on? As humans we like to blame the next person to us for something happening in our lives. I for one am guilty as charged for that. We have thought mhh, “if it weren’t for so and so doing such and such to me, this wouldn’t have happened to me”, “if I hadn’t listen to her I would not be in this situation”. As humans it’s the way we function but it’s not the right way to function. We have to take responsibility for our part in the play. Fess up they say.
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding” Proverbs 3:5 (NIV)
Before trusting anyone of flesh with your plans, your thoughts, ideas or your worries. Think of the One who listens to you regardless of it being verbal or non verbal plea. You might have something heavy on your heart no one can decipher that but GOD.
I have learnt that to avoid disappointment, rely on no wo/man. This is includes self. I haven’t been really great at leaning. I have leaned on my own understanding of things without passing it on God and that always ended up in a disaster and lessons were learnt from that. He is the only assurance you really need to get by. In this journey called life you can do be beyond your best but if God is not included then I can assure you the outcome might not be the one you were anticipating. So Trust. If you still trust in GOD and it doesn’t work out. Try again with a sprinkle of faith and Perseverance. It’s not made to be easy and it doesn’t mean its a No. If it is meant to be and when it happens there is a feeling you get that this is exactly how it is supposed to be. I can’t explain it but if you are reading this and you’ve been through it, you know.
Lean on the One. Lean on God. It’s sometimes difficult as he is not physically present but spiritually so you think the message will not pass or be received the same way if it were a physical presence. But He knows you more than yourself remember. It’s much better leaning on Him.
Go be great. Have a blessed week .
