It Led Me Here to This

Last month was my church hopping month as I’ve come to call it. One of the services I went to discussed how once you put yourself out there and truly start believing, obstacles will be put in your way, tempt you or fill you with doubt. I didn’t think much of these words and shrugged them off until things just seemed to become very off balance in my own life and the lives of the closest people around me.

Everything seemed to hit me at once. I always believe everything happens for a reason, but when really bad things happen to good people you can’t help but to question how any God would allow this to occur.

Monica, Farrah and I have had so many questions throughout the past few weeks. Whether it’s job related, relationship-wise or just wondering what the next chapter of our lives will be, we’ve been struggling to find the answers.

I always relate most to music, and seeing Darius Rucker’s latest music video for “This” truly struck me. Sometimes we can’t control the things that happen to us. Whether it’s breaking up with a significant other, losing your job or questioning your faith, we all have the same fears but as the saying goes, “When one door closes, another opens.” Let’s just try not to look at that closed door too long that we miss all the opportunities waiting for us.

How have you managed to reaffirm your faith when everything around you leaves you questioning?
