What, then, shall we say in response to this? If God is for us, who can be against us? -Romans 8:31
Oftentimes, it’s so easy to feel alone. I find it so powerful, though, knowing that Christ will never leave me alone. Days like today (just not-so-great, down-in-the-dumps kind of days) I feel myself moping around as if no one cares about me. Which is an absolutely ridiculous thought to even let cross my mind for one second. Between Christ, my parents, my siblings, friends, and boyfriend, I’m definitely never alone. Besides, when I let myself get down and only see the negative aspects of the then-and-now, I’m being completely selfish. I have so much to be thankful for in my life. Between my house in one of the Top 10 best places to live in America, my car (crappy, yet still something to be thankful for), my family and friends, my awesome public school system, my job, and just about every single thing in my life I can think of-including my insanely awesome curly hair that took me years to embrace-I really have nothing to NOT be thankful for!
Still, today was just one of those days. For some odd reason I spent the entire day moping around like I had actually lost something in my life. I really can’t let small arguments or even momentary sadness keep getting in my way of my real happiness. Regardless, I like to consider myself a happy person, but today I let sadness get the best of me. Besides, I second guess every single thing in my life. People could tell me a thousand times I mean the world to them and I’d still proceed to ask them if they even love me. Why do I do that? I guess some of my past relationships have created extreme barriers and trust issues for me. Still, even my worst day could probably be the best day for someone struggling to even find food or a warm shelter. Why even bother being upset? It’s such a waste of energy when I’d much rather be happy.
Nevertheless, I’m pretty proud to say that I’m determined that no day is ever a bad day.
