Of course I would be up at 5 am writing lol, but here’s some interesting thoughts I’ve had on my mind. Also, this is my first real post on Tumblr…..still mad confused about how tumblr works and all >.<
There was once a lone wolf, who thought he was everything. The wolf thought he could survive and win all the battles on his own. Until that one day when he was shot down, severely injured, unable to continue on. A pack of wolves came to his rescue, with a powerful alpha male leading it on.
Within that pack, the lone wolf found a place. He was healed of his old wounds, and grew stronger than he ever though he could. He was given a role, to rescue others who are injured, and a chance to give back to the Alpha who had saved him.
I myself was definitely that lone wolf. For a long time in my life, I always thought I was the person that could leap forward in life by myself, no need for close friends, no need for anyone else. For a while, I did have that success, being able to do well in school, as well as having a job. However, I never was really happy with it. I thought that success would equal happiness.
Thank goodness that fall did happen though, don’t think that I would still be standing today if it had not.
As I entered into college, my grades fell, friendships continued to plummet, no job, no relationship at all with God. But the deathly wound struck me when I was rejected. For me, I had placed so much attention on that one person, that when it suddenly disappeared, I didn’t know what to do anymore. I did not know why I was continuing on.
God really swooped in a saved me during that time. He was the Alpha wolf who showed up in my life, and not just that, also brought a whole community of people. I am 100% grateful for this family of friends that I am surrounded by, people that I call true friends.
God also gave me a role, and provided for me to grow stronger. He helped me grow in my relationship with others, taught me once again how to reach for good (perhaps not the best I can do, but something that I continue to strive in) grades, provided me even with a job that I never thought I would have. Now He has called me out to do the same as He had once done with me. To seek out the broken and weary and lead them to Him.
I am still learning, and continuing to learn how to trust in God, learning how God is my provider. I am learning that He will provide in EVERY aspect of my life. Whether it be in friendships, a future spouse, financial, grades, or even a means of transportation, He continues to provide in ways that is good for us. I am thankful that God is the Alpha in this pack, for His ways are good, and He will not disappoint!
