He’s not finished with me yet…

What is my purpose on this earth?
I’ve been struggling with this question for many years, and even more over the last 3 and a half yrs. I’ve taken to studying God’s word daily in an effort to better understand His teachings and instructions but I am still unsure what His plans are for my life.

This morning my daily devotional text message was from Romans chapter 8 and it read as follows:

Romans: 8.
28. And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
30. Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.
31. What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?
32. He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
38. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
39. Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. – Bible Offline

Though I’m still studying the book of Numbers, seeing this passage from Romans has given me a bit of hope especially as it comes in the beginning of a brand new year! Perhaps it was meant to remind me that I need to keep working on my faith for at times it may be weak. Perhaps it was meant to remind me that even if I don’t know what God has planned for me, unlike when He promised the children of Israel the ‘Land of Milk and Honey’, I still need to believe that whatever it is it will be something good — something beyond my wildest dreams.

So today I feel blessed to be reminded that God is up to ‘something’ and all I have to do is trust Him and wait for His wonderful surprise.

My year seems off to a wonderful start and I pray that yours is too.

Best wishes to you all…

Hugs,
A.

Life cycles

 

Life is cyclical…
Things come then they go.
Such is the case with
Fads, Friends, Money, Love,
Power, Youth, Seasons
And even Life itself!
Patience, courage and hope/faith
Are the tools needed
To see us through
To the next phase/cycle.
There is no need to fight it,
Just embrace the change
And press on…

The Proof Of Your Love

Sometimes,
We need to prove our love.
Sometimes,
Our words just aren’t enough!

Why we repeat history…

Why do we repeat our past? Is it because we did not learn the lessons we were meant to learn from our trials and experiences? Or is it because we somehow forgot those lessons learned? What ever the reason, we tend to revisit our past to find answers, to gain perspective, to see where we were and to decipher how far we’ve come. If, however, we thought we were moving forward only to discover we’ve gone full circle and ended up right back where we started, then it may be time to take a closer look at the steps we took and perhaps try a different path.

Granted that during our analysis we sometimes find patterns and similarities that are downright astounding, often we have to go back and analyze before we can fully appreciate or understand how to move forward. In the past, we may have dismissed an event as simply a coincidence. But under careful scrutiny we may discover that several similar incidents have occurred. So was it actually just happenstance or a subconscious choice we made based on some truth we unknowingly seek?

A person with unresolved issues with his/her parent may unknowingly choose a mate with many of the characteristics as that parent and attempt to make that relationship work as a way of correcting the parent-child dysfunction of the past. But often enough the relationship doesn’t work because the person is faced with the same series of problems with no clue of how or why things are going wrong or how to fix things. One solution would be to simply dismiss it as bad luck and plow ahead to the next relationship in hopes that new one would work. Others may say, let the past remain in the past and happily leave their baggage locked away. But my obsessive, compulsive, detail-oriented need-to-know nature is forcing me to deal with this head on — to go back to the source, the parent, to try to find resolution there. Or if complete resolution cannot be found, then at least the healing process would have begun. The hardest part is taking the first step back to a painful period but as hard as it is sometimes it has to be done.

I am at that point now! I don’t know what to say, I don’t know how to start, I don’t know if this time my voice would be heard and I don’t know if going back will actually help or if it can somehow make things worse. Should I write a letter? Should I call? Should I meet in person? I don’t yet have the answers to any of these questions but I do know that I’ve procrastinated about this for years and now I don’t think I can put this off any longer. My only wish is that God put the right words in my mouth and speak on my behalf. I NEED to heal…I NEED to break free of this burden…I NEED to move forward for myself and for my sanity.

A good friend said to me recently, that our past comes back to haunt us when there is unfinished business to be resolved — kind of like ghosts in horror movies. He may have a point! Without closure the ghost of unresolved issues will continue to haunt my soul.

Finding Peace…

IMG_168748210801545

Surviving adversity requires strength. Where your strength comes from is entirely up to you, however, mine comes from God.

Psalms Chapter 121

1 (A Song of degrees.) I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.

2 My help [cometh] from the LORD, which made heaven and earth.

Of late I’ve been experiencing a sense of peace and calm that I haven’t felt in a very long time — so long that it was almost unrecognizable —  I thought I was ill!  But then, when no symptoms of illness presented and I realized my attitude in certain situations was different than normal, I began to understand what was happening — I was changing!

Remember how scared, out of place and disoriented you felt the first week at your new job? But when you finally started figuring things out the tension subsided and you started to settle in and feel more comfortable? Well that sense of comfort is what I’m feeling right now. The pieces are finally starting to fit together, I am finally understanding the role I’m supposed to play and I feel less overwhelmed by my responsibilities. I can finally breathe a sigh of relief for I have found a sense of peace.

Psalms Chapter 30

11 Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing: thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness;

12 To the end that [my] glory may sing praise to thee, and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give thanks unto thee for ever.

Thank you God for bestowing this mercy upon me. I am forever grateful!
