A great discussion I had with a dear sister about transparency. I alway say to myself that transparency is expensive, and cannot be taken lightly. When someone is trying to express the way they feel, it is a cry for help. A way to ask if you really understand the depth of pain they are going through.
We all have been there. Times where we have doubted who we are, trying to find pleasure in being busy, but in the end, you feel the same way you started. What triggers emotions the more is when there is silence. When you cry out, but nothing seems to come your way. You look good in your clothing, I can see that you are travelling to many countries, I see your Instagram followers increasing, but the real question to you is, are you happy?
2018 has been one of the most blowing years of my life – not only losing my sister in May, but understanding what and where inner peace comes from. Despite the silence, the tears, the pain, the noise, there is still something to be thankful for in the midst of circumstance. The silence that caused me to really look deep within made me realise that I am not alone in my situation.
The next time you feel that God is not answering or that your problems aren’t going away, try to be still in order to hear His voice. I am now realising that people cannot fully understand me the way God does, and what truly moves Him is being able to hear your voice that will shake the Heavens on your behalf. His peace is what we need to endure this life.
Give Him your all – this is what June has taught me. Don’t give him parts of it and deal with the rest. I really am taking every day as it comes as a rich lesson to make the most of it, and live my life to the fullest on purpose. No matter where you are right now, please tell yourself that you will never give up. We are all on a race, and you are in charge of winning or losing.
The pain that we encounter is not meant for us alone; the silent moments we face and experience is God telling you to get closer to Him. This is what I want to leave you with:
I want ou to get to the point where you trust what God says at the expense of His silence.
Your Father in Heaven knows what is best for you. So in the midst of silence, just be still and know that everyone is working for you, and not against you.
