Your Search For You (Sincerely Yours)
A lot of people will always compete for your time, heart, and eyes, but in your life, the most important person is you.
People will want you to listen to them, to believe them, to trust them, but knowing how much power to accord each of these people is one of the most important decisions you will ever make.
Some people want you to listen to them because that is where they find their value. Others want you to hear them out because they want to be seen as always helpful. Even if their help never amounts to much.
There is another category of people who want to genuinely want the best for you. But then their perspective is always clouded by their past fears, failures, and inadequacies.
One thing you should always know is that whoever you listen to, or accept their advice or help, or choose to trust, if things ever fail, they will tell you that they never forced their “help” or “view” on you.
They will trumpet how you always had the power to turn them down at any time. And it is not a lie.
Use your senses. Your brain is also unique. All of your previous experience accumulatively is one no one else has in that exact order.
The truth is that you don’t have to learn everything afresh.
Watching and listening to others will extend your horizon. Movies, music, books, and others are ways by which you can learn endlessly.
But the judgement of what is right and wrong, what next to do, and what you should delay on or never do is always up to you.
The best part of it is that you have access to a source of help that no one else can offer. Irrespective of your current station in life, God is always offering a listening ear. He is also willing to give you what you desire and need.
Thankfully, no pastor or prophet has a monopoly of access to God.
As long as your heart is right with Him, he is always available for you.
In the midst of all the chaos in this world, you need to know yourself. You need to find yourself. You need to trust yourself.
No one can want better for you than you want for yourself. So also, no one else should be in the driving seat of your life.
And when the time comes to take a stand, even if all alone, take your stand.
Stand for yourself and by yourself.
When things eventually get weighed and judged, let it be said that you never swayed. That you stood for what you believed in. And that you stood, even when alone.
