‘Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.’ -1 Peter 5:7 [NIV]
Sometimes there are days that don’t go to plan. Today, that was what my day was like.
Emotionally, my day didn’t go how I was expecting it to. All because of a conversation that really hit me. To the point where I internally blamed myself for anything and everything and let it out in the wrong way on a person that I love deeply. I felt so low and felt so unworthy.
I felt as if I couldn’t write a blog today, like anything I would write would mean nothing. I couldn’t bring myself to put pen to paper because I felt so uninspired and ashamed of myself. All because of one thing that wasn’t part of the plan I made for my day. But then I realised… everyone gets days like this. Everybody feels like their days don’t go to plan sometimes, everyone has those days where they feel so low and unworthy.
What I’m trying to say, is that, you’re not alone. And trust me, I know it feels like it on these days, but the chance is that you’ll run into someone who’s had the same experience as you that week!
At the time it sucks because it seems as if this feeling of unworthiness towards yourself will never go away. But what you’ve got to remember is that sometimes, life is hard. Sometimes it’s emotionally draining. But that’s okay. It’s all a part of life. It’s a learning curve. It’s something we all go through. We may not understand why these unplanned things happen, but we’ve got to work through them, pray about them and figure out how we can use this unplanned thing to make something better and good.
During these days, when everything doesn’t go to plan, physically or emotionally, let it go. Give it all to Jesus. Let it all out. Speak to someone. Don’t keep it inside you, sit someone down who’ll listen and just say ‘can we talk please?’ then let it all out even, if it’s just speaking to Jesus through prayer! Because letting it out is the best thing for you to do. Everything will be okay. You’re not alone.
