I was really racking my brain for something to write about and I thought what’s really going on in my life now? I really can’t complain; I’m blessed. But if I did have one bone to pick, it would be about this constant mental battle I have. It deals with getting over people. The other night I was lying in my bed and I asked God to help me get over certain people. And clear as day He told me to “Kill the Illusion.” I knew this Word had to be from God. It was so clear; something so simple that I couldn’t have come up with myself. Maybe you need to kill the illusion too. I tend to let my imagination run wild and fantasize about people; make them perfect in my mind. That Word from God was telling me that I need to take some people off their pedestal and see them for who they really are. They are not meant to be a part of my life anymore, and the person(s) absence is best. Not that anyone who comes into my life will be perfect, but some people are not meant to be a permanent part of my life. I need to let them go, and better yet stop chasing them/wanting them to come back. I’ll be the first to admit, it’s hard to let go when you don’t have anything to grasp on to next. But that’s where faith and God come in.
“For just as the suffering of Christ flow over into our lives, so also through Christ our comfort overflows.” (1 Corinthians 1:5)
He will be our comfort during hard times and lonely times. Right now, I’m pouring into my passion which is writing, tending to my blog, as well as reading my manuscript again. I’m really pushing to have a memoir published in the next few years.
