Colossians 2:2-3 New International Version (NIV)
My goal is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ, 3 in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.
A HEART OF GOOD INTENTIONS ~
Treasures of wisdom and knowledge
I wrote about this the other day, but isn't it true that we all want a connect in life. That person who understands us and knows our hearts. God is truly the only one who understands us but he puts people into our lives that love us too. Trying to figure some people out in life can be hard. I have learned to meet people where they are in life and do my best to influence them. Yet, there are some people who I just don't connect with and they don't connect with me. That doesn't mean that kindness shouldn't be my goal to them. I continue to pray for them too and I pray that I keep a right attitude toward them. Then there are others that you must let go in life. A fine balance of it all and knowing that I am walking the path God has set for me.
THINGS CHANGE ~
I have changed over time and you have too
Life represents from birth to death. Babies need our full attention and can't do it without someone. As they grow up, they still need our help. I have found that others need me no matter the age. I have found that I need others no matter my age. I can do something alone, but I need someone to help me on other things. I have wants and dreams just like anyone else. I often wonder what people think of me and at the end of the day, I play it over. I see how life changes and I've grown in wisdom with age. I have chosen to learn from mistakes of life and live in kindness to others. That doesn't mean that my heart doesn't hurt at times. Somethings I just wish never happened, but they did. It leaves me with dealing with my mind playing somethings over and then choosing to let go again.
Never wish you were anyone else in life. Nobody knows the depth of a life or one's heart but God. I have walked paths that nobody really knows in my life. Thoughts are powerful and travel so far without leaving a chair inside your house. You might questions, why didn't I do that different or I wish I knew more in younger years. Stop replaying the things that stop you from complete freedom of a new day. I woke up today with my heart hurting. I feel sad and I wish things were different in many areas of life. There not, but I can do something to change it. My own mindset can turn to seeing the things I do have and I have enough in life. I just believe that God's isn't a God of just enough but more than enough.
We go through seasons of life, just like the weather. Things change and we don't always like the season at first, but we grow into knowing this will change. I don't like the dark coming so fast now and summer is gone. Fall brings colorful trees and then leaving falling. It's time to put away shorts and put on long pants. Then winter and rains will start. Life just changes and inside our brains, we change too. Purpose to make the best of each day and no matter what season of life you are in, count blessings.
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
