There are times in life when we tend to doubt ourselves, our decisions, and second guess everything we do. It’s almost like we are two people. One of us has a plan, knows what they want, and can actually be happy about the potential outcome. Then there is this other person within us that always shows up and creates an internal battle inside your soul that can leave you feeling broken, stressed, a nervous wreck, and even make you so sick you break down. That’s actually what happened to my mother. It’s amazing that I am able to recognize this in my own life as a result of what my mother went through all those years ago.
I am so blessed to have such a strong mother, she was a fighter. She turned to God, and God took control. If you are struggling with a similar situation, or just doubting your own ability to make a decision, I encourage you to Stop Fighting Yourself, and Start Fighting For Yourself!
Listen to your heart and validate what it is YOU actually want. Push aside all the chatter of everyone else, and stop worrying about pleasing everyone because you simply can’t. Don’t worry what people think of you, because they are not living in your shoes. Do what is right for you and keep the faith that you are making the right decision. Even if it is the wrong decision, God will find a way to turn it around and make it even better!
Someone recently told me that you are the only driver of your train; the train of your life! You can’t drive someone else’s train. You can’t change anyone; they have to be willing to do the hard work themselves. What you can do though, is protect your conductor. That protection comes from God, and He is fighting for us even when we can’t fight for ourselves. So give your burdens and your worries to God and let Him carry the them for you. Listen to what He has to say, validate whether or not you need to act or take an action regarding your situation, and do your best to follow His path. Then come back to the present and live one day at a time; just keep on keeping on and move forward knowing you did the best you could for you!
With God’s help you can fight for yourself! Fight for your life! Fight for what is right!
