If you’re anything like me, at one point you thought you were invincible. In a way, you thought only bad things could happen to other people, except you.
“I’m a child of God. Nothing bad can happen to me”.
“I’m striving to live a righteous life. So, nothing bad can happen to me”.
“I got to church every Sunday. So, nothing bad can happen to me”.
I am here to admit that bad things can happen to anyone. God never said we wouldn’t have difficult times or bad times. However, he promised he would be here with us every step of the way and we would get through it.
Becoming pregnant at 24 wasn’t the worse thing that could happen to me. Let’s face it, I could be dead or have some terminally ill sickness. However, I was blessed to conceive a baby. Of course, I don’t promote having a child out of wedlock. But, it happened and I have been forgiven…I’ve forgiven myself.
We have to be careful with how we perceive things and what we allow to hold root in our hearts. I could’ve allowed this situation to let me become bitter and give up on my dreams. However, I choose to look at the positive. I honestly believe everything happens for a reason. I was blessed to conceive a baby girl and when she arrives, I’ll be blessed to hold her in my arms.
Life throws us many curve balls and challenges. It’s up to us to change our perception of those difficult times that arise. It’s up to us to look at the positives in all situations and say we will get though it. It’s up to us to not allow the hardships to swallow us whole.
Yes, you had a plan. So, did I.
Yes, life isn’t fair! But, who said it was supposed to be?
Yes, it hurts. But, it’s the pain we feel that makes us stronger.
I’m able to smile during my pregnancy and really smile, because my baby is my biggest blessing thus far. Changing your mind is the best thing you can do when you’re going through the storm. Remember, storms don’t last forever. You must stand your ground and hold your head high, while the storm passes.
Until next time xoxo
