Before I get into anything, I wrote an entire post, expecting it to be what I wanted to convey, but a more appropriate thought came along and instead, this is the post:
We all make mistakes. We’ve all isolated ourselves on our own island of mistakes. Whether we’ve hurt loved ones or made unforgivable mistakes, the thought of question and wonder about why we did it is inexplicable and unbearable. The weight of guilt and anguish is too much for one to bear. But just like Tom Hank’s character in the movie Cast Away, the only thing we can do is to keep breathing.
Even though we cannot move on together, I must always remember to breathe because tomorrow, “the sun will rise, and who knows what the tide will bring in.”
This is true. As hard as this has been, logic says, life will continue. Even though my plans didn’t work out and it didn’t end with a fairytale ending, life will continue. God will provide.
And as hard as it’s been, God will always appropriately and perfectly control the tide; who He brings into our lives. We just have to patiently wait.
But we must always continue to breathe.
