This is another Truth. It's solid and constant. You can trust it.
Everything is going to be okay.
Bad things happen, horrible things happen, people are lost, lives are shattered, hearts are broken. But even then. Everything is eventually okay.
I learned this Truth with some difficulty. I didn't want to just trust that things would work out. I wanted to meddle, control, fix, and manage until I got things to where I thought they should be. But life always had a way of working itself out without my help. I often did not get what I wanted. Sometimes I got what I hated.
But in the end, everything is okay.
And now I look back and say: Thank God things worked the way they DID and not the way I wanted them to.
Isn't that interesting? How life gives us exactly what we need?
What we must always strive to have are eyes that can see, ears that can hear, and hearts that are open to the possibilities of what the world is offering us.
If you've been reading my blog, you know things have not always been a puddle of sunshine for me. But today, this day, is my finest hour. I have so much happiness and so much perspective and so much serenity, I almost feel guilty about it.
But I don't. I know what I have learned. I know that I have found that place that lets me know that I am always and was always everything I am supposed to be. I know life will continue to bring lessons to my door. I know that life is going to continue to give me exactly what I need and that everything will always be okay.
