Faith has been a struggle for me. It’s been foreign to me most of my life. For the last few months, I have put in some real effort in staying in faith. Trusting that life will unfold as it should, allowing God to move through my life without my will interfering.
Today that was put to the test. Receiving some bad news that I had hoped would go another direction. What I do understand better than I would have in the past, is God is moving the pieces of my life around to align me with my destiny. Yes, it hurts, but I have the understanding now that growth is often painful.
The pain I feel is not “oh my God my life is over.” It’s sad that a chapter of my life is over, I had truly hoped it would move forward. God, has seen fit to move me in another direction. It’s time to embrace that and get excited about what is to come.
For the first time in my life, I’m not letting a sad situation destroy everything. This time I won’t lose the battle. Time for a change with an open heart.
This time my life is going to take a different path. For the first time in my life, I choose not to allow the enemy to win me over. This time I am following a path of faith in God. Happy, fun, and brand new chapter in my life!
