“What man gives you, man can take away. What God gives you is made to last.”
Many people pursue different kinds of things like relationships, careers, goals, dreams, etc. They think that with their looks, education, wisdom, skills, and all that, they can earn something that they strive & work for, which in some cases hard work does pay off. But whatever it is that you are working at, can be taken away in an instant. Your relationships can fail. You can lose that job that you’ve worked so hard far. You may not have enough money to reach that goal or dream and it is post-poned. And if something like this does happen how can you come back from it? How devastating would that be? But you see if you put your eggs in God’s basket, these things are attainable, plus more, and if an unfortunate situation does happen you have the tools and wisdom from God to deal with and come back stronger than before. Having faith is so very important, and also acknowledging that you can’t accomplish things solely on your own. You need God’s help. This is trusting, submitting, & humbling yourself to the grace of God. I encourage you to put all pride aside and to ask upon our Lord for guidance, help, and understanding. He will most definitely bless you and shine His light over you. He already wants to, you just have to let Him!
“But let all those rejoice who put their trust in You; let them ever shout for joy, because You defend them; let those also who love Your name be joyful in You. For You, O Lord, will bless the righteous; with favor You will surround him as with a shield.” Psalm 5:11-12
“He who is of a proud heart stirs up strife, but he who trusts in the Lord will be prospered. He who trusts in his own heart is a fool, but whoever walks wisely will be delivered.” Proverbs 28: 25-26
