😎🐫🎤 Christ’s peace be with you. You’re in the moment but all you can see looking forward is uncertainty, inconsistency, confusion. Sometimes wondering why you continue to stay in that moment and do what you’re doing while others keep leaving for the greener grass on the other side of the fence. You’ve been in this moment for quite some time now. Living in this moment of my work life, I don’t like the person I’m allowing myself to become. Angry, on edge, snap at a moment’s notice. This is not who I want to be. What happened to the person that used to live at the surface that so easily found the good in all situations? Esther was brought to my mind today. Did she find herself in the ideal situation? I think not. Did she want to leave that situation? I’m sure she did. Did she take notice and gain wisdom? Yes, she did. Did she allow herself to be used for God’s will for the benefit of many? Absolutely.
When you live and work through extended periods of challenges like this, one of the benefits you can experience is that you’re able to look back while still in the moment, and see how you’ve served others and have grown. What is He preparing me for? I don’t know. I just don’t know. But I do know that I don’t want to let these moments pass by and not gain the wisdom He is placing before me. I know that I can not do this on my own. I need Him and those He has purposefully placed around me. I know that moments of silence can be a greater ally than many words spoken. And I know that scaling this mountain is but a single step in Your plan. Although I feel ill prepared, You have made me for such a time as this. Lord, I pray that I accept that which the journey has to offer and not just focus on a desired outcome. Bless others and be blessed.
