Chasing Dead Ends

Wednesday, January 11th, 2017

There are two kinds of people; those who teach you HOW TO BE and those who teach you HOW NOT TO BE. People either want you in their life or they don’t.

What am I saying? STOP CHASING PEOPLE!

For the last 5 months, I’ve literally thought my world was crashing to the ground. If there was an emotion to be felt, I wallowed in it like a pig in mud. I’ve felt lonely, hopeless, afraid, freaked out, overwhelmed, bitter, vengeful, jealous, sad and the list goes on and on. But, the emotion that has bothered me the most out of all the emotions I’ve weathered has to be the feeling of desperation.

Desperation is a dangerous place to dwell. Webster defines desperation as a strong feeling of sadness, fear and loss of hope which can cause one to react with rash or extreme behavior.

I’ve been feeling pretty desperate. Day after day of not hearing back from employers or companies can push even the strongest of persons into a corner of desperation. Rash and extreme begin to seem logical.

Many times, I’ve encouraged my hubby to reach out…push a little harder or to dream a little higher and yet, crickets.

Did you know silence is noise? Let me say it a little more clearly – no answer is an answer. When someone wants you – you will know it. They will come for you. You do not have to chase anyone for anything. Ever. Not a friendship, true love or even a job.

Someone needs to hear this.

God is always at work in our lives even when we feel like we are sitting in a desperate and hopeless situation. It’s time for us to stop chasing people, places and situations that do not belong to us. God has a plan.

Trust Him to deliver it in His time.
