Finding Myself

It's been a little while since I last posted. I guess I just haven't felt the need to post, not sure why?

Lately I've been struggling with trying to find myself and be happy with who I am. I'm not sure if it is just me or not but it sure seems like everyone is in a relationship (especially when I'm at college). I feel like it has just been rubbed in my face a lot lately and it leaves me feeling lonely, unqualified, ugly and neglected.

I continually have to remind myself that I don't need to be in a relationship to feel needed, qualified or worthy. God has shown me that He is all I need. He has always been enough for me in the past and He will continue to be until He brings the right guy along.

I also feel like I have been focusing on so many earthly things recently and not focusing on my relationship with God as much. It could be with all the constant changes from college and now being on break for Christmas. It's just hard to find God with my surroundings changing so much. I know I should be relying on God for so many things right now but it just seems like I haven't been going to Him like I used to. Somehow when I'm writing on here it seems to draw me closer to Him. I guess that is why I decided to write something today.

This time of the year also reminds me to be thanking God for all that He has done in my life. He has provided so many things for me and my family and Has never left my side once. I'm so thankful for the family He has given me and I can come home to them when college leaves me feeling empty and hurt. It sure is nice knowing that there are people who love you no matter what and will always be there. God truly is one of those amazing people!

So if you feel like you have been focused on the raise you want, caught up in your grades, wanting to be in a relationship or just trying to feel accepted- remember there is more to life than those things. Some things will only bring you temporary pleasure whereas a relationship with God will bring an everlasting treasure that will never be wasted. Keep God the center of your life. Ask Him to keep you focused on what really matters and pray for Him to guide you where He wants you to go. God has perfect timing and knows what is best. He has a perfect plan for your life and knows what you can or cannot handle. Right now may seem hard but in the end it will all make sense!

  1. Britt I was at this very same place as you are now. (and sometimes I still am). I had a friend who was in a relationship it lasted for six months, and it was hard on me. Always having to hear about her boyfriend what they did together, talking with her and all of the sudden he texts her something sweet. Its very hard. I couldn't understand how she could be dating and not me?! How could I possibly not find a guy? It seemed pointless...I felt discouraged, ugly, and not worthy. But I realized that I don't need a boyfriend. I don't need to hear that I'm beautiful, or have someone to talk to everyday....I could be doing all that with God.

    Boy did this take me a long time to figure out, but I'm glad I did. Honestly I don't think I can handle to pressure and life of being in a relationship. I saw how it destroyed, and hurt my friend in the end. remember this; don't date until you are looking for your soul mate, "the one". Ready for marriage.

    anyways I know this was long, I hope this can help you in someway. Britt you are a beautiful, amazing girl with an incredible heart. Don't let the world let you get caught up in Gods timing. I know he is waiting and has the perfect man picked out for you! <3

  2. Sometimes it just feels like we are spending to much time getting on with our lives and not being thankful enough for what we have. I thought the same thing as you but then I realised that the best way it just to show others goodness by what you do in your life. I believe that there is time for everything whether that be having time with God and time with friends. xxx
