Life will always hand you lemons. There’s no way around that. The good thing is, God is aware of this, and, He lets them come your way because He knows He has equipped you enough to make lemonades out of them. The process, though, is not always easy. But it’s in the process that we grow.
Nothing new there.
But there’s something we tend to hide from—being honest about the tough times in our lives when in all honesty, there’s nothing to be ashamed of. I recently read a post from a blogger friend who admitted that her boyfriend of four years had ended their relationship and she was heartbroken. She also shared a bit of good news, too. The point is, she was awesomely honest. And the flood of comments/likes? So gracious! I’m sure in the end her day was brighter for it.
What am I trying to say?
No one is immune to days where it seems like lightening has zapped EVERY SINGLE thing in your life, and nothing makes sense anymore. You’re sure that if it isn’t the whole world that’s crazy, it’s you. But … there’s NOTHING to be ashamed of. If you don’t want anyone in your business, that’s fine, too. But please, don’t intentionally present a false front on social media (or in the real world) simply because you want to be viewed as part of the “party group.” You’ll only walk away very hurt for it and feeling drained, confused, stupid, and like a complete fraud. Yes, it’s true.
So, tell the truth, or tell nothing. But tell God everything. If you have buddies/family who you know will genuinely care and will listen, tell them too. It’s the best way forward and you’ll be better for it.
I believe this video explains it best.
