God Is Writing My Story

God wrote my story, knowing what I would go through in this time I have on earth.

I have a story. And my story is different from everyone else’s. I am unique and flawed and I am okay with that. My story reflects who I am and possibly will be. I may be co-writing it, but the real author is God. He knew the beginning and He knows the end. I’m just adding the small details as I go along.

God is writing my story and I am okay with that. He knew when I would be born. He knew my hair and eye color. He knew where I would live, who I would meet, and knows who I will spend the rest of my life with. He knew who I needed, who changed my life, and who would hurt me emotionally.

He planned my first steps and what my first word would be. He even knows how many hairs I have on my head, which is crazy. And it’s insane to think He already knows what He has in store for me, even when I don’t have the slightest clue.

I am not a character. I am a person. I am a daughter. I am a sister. I am a cousin. And maybe one day I will be a mother. I am special and loved and wanted. I am different than everyone else, which makes my story all the more greater.

Like all storylines, there is trouble and trials. No matter what happens, there is no way of escaping it. But the trouble is not to make me feel awful, even if I do along the way, but to make me stronger and wiser. I will get hurt and angry and exhausted, but that is supposed to happen.

God wrote my story, knowing what I would go through in this time I have on earth. He gave me free will, which allows me to co-write my story. He gave me people who would make me humble and feel loved. He put in conflicts I found uncomfortable and annoying and maybe even a little stupid. He tested my faith and my relationships. He knew who I needed and when I needed them. And among all these feelings and events, he gave me joy and hope and happiness.

I still struggle to find the difference between whether a person is there for a lesson or a reason. I may have trouble accepting the final result, but I know that God only wants the best for me. And I trust Him.

There is no telling when my next chapter will end and when the new one will start or how many there will be total. But I do know, this book, this adventure, this story will end when I finally meet Him in heaven. Then a new book will begin. A book with no pain, no sorrow, no trials.

I have no idea what God has in store for me. But I am okay with that as long as I know He is the one writing. I know there will be many more conflicts to come. I will meet more people who will either provide lessons or reasons. But I know that whatever the end result may be, it will be spectacular.

Whether You Believe In God Or Not, You Will Always Crave A Higher Power

No matter what you believe in, you have your own version of a "higher power."

What is it that you believe in?

We all believe in something, whether it's believing our favorite team is going to win that championship, or that global warming is upon us, or even that essential oils cure headaches. Whatever it may be, we have to believe in something, right?

From a young age, we believed in things such as the Tooth Fairy, or Santa Clause, or that a princess' world was a reality that we could obtain. We were taught to believe in things so far out there that we believed almost anything that we were told. But how about now?

What is it now that you believe in, truly? This world can be cruel, hateful, and even confusing. There's constantly an uproar on social media about he said she said and "that politician is doing what?". So, consequently, we've turned to something that will save us from this place.

Everyone wants something to save them and the only way to do that is to believe in something bigger than ourselves.

This is where the higher power comes in. There's the Christian faith and believing in God or other religions that have their own version of the same concept. There are beliefs in the Earth in forms of Mother Nature or The Universe. There is faith in Chakra healing and how different stones and rocks have certain energies as well as Astrology.

These all sound very different but, they all have one thing in common. Whatever is believed in is always a very loving, caring, and kind power. Its purpose is to guide us and give us the truth.

With how different each person is in today's society, we can all say that we believe in a Greater Love. People push and argue that their way is the right way when in reality, we all believe in pretty much the same concept. So instead of trying to put down someone's beliefs, try to understand it, because I'm sure it is not far off from yours in the grand scheme of things. I have what I believe in and you have what you believe in.

This isn't a piece on how different we all are, but instead, how similar we all can be. We just have to be accepting on all sides, so that we can all celebrate our likeness.
