Open Your Eyes

I know we tend to use the term “everything happens for a reason” so loosely, but I think the average person doesn’t really take the time to fully understand the reason or can even identify what the reason really is.

In every situation whether it is good or bad, I always try to figure out what role I played in it, what I did right, wrong, or what I could have done better. Some people call it anal, I call it being thorough so that I can not make the same mistake twice. If it was something good, I want to figure out how to be even better the next time.

In life we go through things to learn from it. If we never experienced anything how can we grow?! The decisions we make in life determine how our life exists. We have a right to every decision we make, but the consequences are far from our reach. We don’t control it…God does! We have to make better decisions and to do that, it first starts with building a better relationship with God.

Before we make decisions, we should be consulting with God. I don’t mean telling him what you are going to do, but asking to see if it aligns with what he has planned for us.

If you find yourself in the same situations over and over again then it’s time to try something different. Change is inevitable, but can be so beneficial. It can be the next best thing in your spiritual growth.

What are you going to differently? What works for you?

  1. I really appreciate your words of wisdom here. I think a lot of people get hung up on waiting for God to change things, when he’s already given us so many tools to work with. Recognize what you’ve been given and step forward asking how do I use what you’ve given to change this situation, rather than wait for the rainbow in the sky on a clear blue sky. Co-creation is a gift and we are all given so much power to change our lives. If we could only see how wonderfully made we are, we would realize that miracles are formed within and manifest outwardly, not the other way around. Thank you for your insights, peace, j.


    1. Sorry for the delayed reply Jeremy! But, thanks for stopping by and for your awesome response! It’s always great to see the thoughts on life from other’s perspectives and especially when they align with your own!
