Impulse for your month

Happy first day of March! Incredible how quickly the first two months of this year have gone by. Usually, we look back at the end of a year, but let's just reflect now for a minute: How is your 2018 going so far? Did you have any resolutions - if so, are you still working on them? Did some wishes already come true, or are you still anxiously waiting for them to be fulfilled? What are challenges you faced already, or you're facing right now? Take a minute to look inside yourself: How are you ACTUALLY doing? We are all quick to answer "I'm fine!" - but are you really?
Because, in case you're not, that's ok. We all struggle, are stressed and sometimes don't know how to deal with all the stuff that life throws at us.
So, maybe you realize that you are actually struggling right now, and that your year has not gone as planned so far. That's fine - because when you feel like you've hit rock bottom, there's no way to go but up. And God has the way ready for you. I know it's hard to recognize his guideposts sometimes, but he will lead and prepare the way for you. No challenge he gives you will be too hard for you to overcome, that's for sure. It's a literal leap of faith sometimes to put all your trust into the Lord, and actually believe even when it seems like there is no way out. But there is: the way up.
I encourage you to make peace with yourself in case you've been struggling lately. If everything has been going great for you, all the better - look at the great way that God opened for you! Either way, coninue to pray, or to start praying all together in case you stopped for whatever reason. He will listen, and he will answer. Be ready to be still sometimes and be receptive of his response, which can be very subtle or unexpected.
One thing is for sure: God guides you and has a way for you, even though it might be rocky sometimes. Afterall, there is really no way to go but up.
