Scars for the Journey

Scars for the Journey

The other night as I was trying to sleep these thoughts kept rolling through my head and heart.  I believe they are meant to be shared for someone that may be in a dark part of their journey.

I once lived in a dark, dark pit where there was no light and there was no hope.  But God had mercy on me and saw fit to rescue and deliver me.  Have you had a ‘but God’ moment?  Not a day goes by that I forget the pit from which the Lord brought me.  While I remember the pit, I don’t stay focused on the pit.  I’m not meant to stare at that place for nothing good was there and nothing good will come from focusing on that place.  I stay focused on the God that brought me out.  So, in my daily life I can’t help but praise and worship the God that saved my life in so many ways.  I can’t help but think of Him and feel a rush of gratitude.  The gratitude isn’t reserved for a season or a specific date.  My gratitude flows freely daily because of who God is to me. …THE REST OF THE STORY

God’s Timing, When???

I began a new chapter in my life a few weeks ago.  I felt like it was a great opportunity to start something else new…this blog.  Timing is so important.  We often want what we want when we want it.  Well…not often…maybe more like always.

Tuesday (a few weeks ago) was my last day in an office outside of my home.  It happened suddenly and unexpectedly.  A few weeks ago my work situation/environment completely changed, which required much thought and action by myself & my co-workers.  For me, it was an opportunity to embrace a change and to experience a completely different work environment.  I spent the next several days really thinking about what all this means for my co-workers and what it means for me.  There was a form of “survivor guilt” that was really weighing me down. …THE REST OF THE STORY
