IF ONLY TEARS CAN TELL WHAT WORDS CAN’T SAY
There is nothing like feeling so frustrated to the point you just want to give up. You see others around you prosper while you continue to struggle. It’s like someone gasping for their last breathe thinking life has ended.
Even as you begin to lower your head and eyes begin to tear up. You swallow hard choking back a sob. Because the pressure of trying to be the best person you can be gets hard at times. Never understanding how close you are to achieving your goals. Your break through is near.
Yet why listen to others, the ones who procrastinate and never finish what they started. Always having excuses meanwhile trying to tell you why you should not pursue what you love the most. Let your tears be the fuel that burns inside your soul. Be the inspiration that drives you to success when others want you to fail.
Know that when the tears stop streaming down your face, there is no one or nothing that will hinder you from achieving your goal. Sometimes you just have to dry your face, lift your head up and focus. It takes more than just saying what you are going to do. Even in our mistakes we must be strong and know that through God’s grace and belief in yourself you still can make it right.
Take comfort in knowing that success comes from the ones who endure. Regardless of your shortcoming, trials, and tribulations choose to live life to the fullest. Take charge in how you live your life, always put God first and meet every challenge that comes your way with faith.
Most want a resolution but many choose not to be a part of the solution. No matter what, we must learn to let go and let God have His way. Put your pride aside knowing you have a higher calling and remember life goes on. You might shed some tears but God will always love you even through your pain.
