Now I know some of you are saying, she just don't understand. Last week is over, but the stuff of last week is still real in my life. I do understand, #For Real. But I also understand that some of this is of your own doing. You have allowed the issues of the former week to infiltrate your newness and now it has become infected. Some of that stuff really was resolved.
The problem is that it wasn't the outcome you had hoped for so you stay stuck hoping that the situation will change. If that man walked out of your life, let his ass go. He probably did for you what you were unable to do for yourself. Be grateful that he is allowing you to get on with your life rather than stay and kill every ounce of your spirit.
And if on the other side, God gave you a second, where you could think with a clear mind, and you walked away from the chaos with some of your dignity in tact, then why are you doubting God? There is nothing like a clear mind, it cleanses your soul. Why would you want to infiltrate yesterday's ugly with today's pretty? The same thing can apply to that job you lost. Some changes aren't always a bad change.
God always has a plan. The problem is we live in a right now society and we want quick solutions to what we perceive as a problem. We go from one relationship to another because we don't want to spend time with ourselves. We take the easy and most comfortable way but that way in the end does more damage to the sprit.
Nothing can grow in dead soil, but be cling to dry dirt like fertile soil. And in doing so, we create more misery for ourselves. That is not the place that God wants us to be. The Bible says, that He came that we might have life more abundantly. So why do we deny ourselves the joy stuck in pain.

But I also understand, while I can't change the situation, I can change how I see it; even week to week. God gives us fresh eyes and a clear mind to use for our goodness. While I accept the bad with grace and dignity, I seek the good for God's glory. Each time I smile against the odds I say, "My body my be hurting, but my heart is happy." Only God can do such a thing, create diabolical opposites in one body.
