If you are going through a hard time and people are frustrated with you then you need to examine your own life. What are your goals? How are you acting? And who are you living for? I’ve done this and for these past two weeks I have felt peace. It’s amazing how some things work. I felt as if my life is exactly like a bible verse. Romans 7:15-25 to be exact. Paul talks about how he wants to do good, but the sin inside of him keeps ruling his body and mind and he keeps sinning. I relate with that. I have wanted to always do the right thing and be the kid that people look up to and hold in high regard but like many people…including Paul.. I have fallen. Does that mean I can’t get up again? NO. It means that I’m learning and I’m like everyone else. Then this past week I re read to story of Jonah and learned something amazing. And that’s this… God will throw storms into your life in order to get your attention. Jonah was running away from God. He was deliberately disobeying what God commanded him to do. For these past few years I have felt at times that I can put my faith on hold. But God is always there to throw a storm into my life in order to get my attention. This last one really got my attention and I don’t think I’m turning my back on Him again. I feel as if God threw this storm into my life to direct me in many aspects. My friends, my college choice, my life choices, and to refocus myself. I am figuring everything I can out about this situation and I am happy. Happy that I have a fresh start in a new place. What I tell myself every morning and night is this… God is good all the time, and all the time he is good. God has a great plan for your life Sam and this is just part of it. If you are ever struggling just say that to yourself and believe it.
