We engage you… Entertainment, Encouragement, Inspiration, Education and Shenanigans. All on one blog!
I don’t know about you, but it is always hard for me when good things come to an end. Then people come out of the woodwork attempting to encourage you with endless clichés and statements like ” something better is coming in its place“. Even though this may very well be true, we often mourn what we have lost. It is a process and it is not always easy.
I am a person who really appreciates order and routine, especially when it comes to work. I like knowing where I am going every day & what I will be doing. I especially like knowing that my paycheck will be directly deposited on the proper date. (God bless my many entrepreneurial friends, because that takes courage and lots of faith to have your own business.) Even on the weekends, I like to know in advance where I am going and with whom. Even though I may deviate every once in awhile, for the most part I enjoy structure. When my structure is shaken, so are my nerves!
However, in my 37 years of living, I have learned that there will not always be structure and things do change in unexpected ways. But, I have also learned that there is always better, even when it doesn’t appear so, or it takes a long time coming. Life is filled with challenges & changes but we must keep moving forward. At this point in my life I have decided to make a conscious choice to silence the fears. I make a choice to be progressive and move forward, using these tough (and scary) times as an opportunity to grow and develop into a better version of myself.
Right now my faith is being tested in many ways, but I have learned the art of trusting GOD, even though I am sometimes fearful of what may come. Being fearful doesn’t make you faithless or negative, it simply makes you human. The rain comes and storms may rage, but there is no need to worry. God is with you (and me).
Besides, have you ever noticed the sky is always most beautiful after a storm? 🙂 Be comforted.
Then they cry out to the Lord in their trouble, And He brings them out of their distresses.
He calms the storm, So that its waves are still.
Then they are glad because they are quiet; So He guides them to their desired haven.
