Understanding your emotions - and where they stem from - can be complicated sometimes. I experienced this uncertainty one night when trying to pinpoint my anxious thoughts.
Why was I so stressed?
Why was I so discouraged?
Why was I so uneasy about the future?
...because I felt like I had failed so many times, my future could only look as bleak as my past.
I made wrong choices that, at the time, I thought were right.
I decided to do things that, at the time, I thought were for the best.
I told people things I was sure about, at the time, only to tell them later that things don't pan out the way I thought they would.
I screwed up.
So where does that leave me?
Because I don't trust myself anymore.
But then again, when was I ever called to trust in myself?
Where in the Bible does God encourage us to lay confidence in ourselves?
Maybe a couple times? No. Maybe once? No. Never.
We are only commanded to trust in one Truth, one Being, one God.
So being at a place of not trusting yourself is the perfect place to start trusting your God.
