Keep Going

Every step in life gears us up to handle things that we are yet to face later on. God planned our lives to be like this. He wanted us to live, learn, grow, and then continue on and find ways to make our lives easier so that we could spend more time with Him. This way we can spend time learning about Him and sharing our learnings with others.

Currently, I want to work. Most of you know from previous posts that I used to be a fulltime manager for the Olive Garden and now I am a stay at home mom. I love what I do. I have time that I never had before with my daughter and husband but sometimes I feel guilty because I know I can do more to help provide.

Most of you know that I have found some wonderful options through teaching online, but now my computer has started acting up so this is not doable at this time. I will be able to do this in the future but not right now.

I have to say, when this happened I felt a little down because I was excited to get started but then this happened so now I have to wait.

Of course, God always comes through with a little nudge that brings me back to being me. This time He made me laugh… here is a picture of my devotional…

 

What are your thoughts?

I also spoke to my mom and pretty much realized with her that God may want me to spend more time learning Romanian. If He was to give me what I want WHEN I want… I wouldn’t have the time I do now to study this new language that I have been trying to learn.

My learning from this is… Have Faith. Pray Often. Then, Get back on that horse and ride! God doesn’t want us to feel down. He wants us to keep going! He wants us to fully trust Him even if we think we should be doing more or other things. So… that is what I will do.

I pray that God touches you now and always. I pray that He shows you the way and keeps you on track. Always remember… it isn’t our way that is important… it is His way that makes us happy.

    I keep quoting this because it is what I live by ” To everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under heaven: a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot,… Keep knocking at God’s door and the door will be opened and you will find what you are looking for. I like your sense of optimism and hope in all things Christy.

      Thank you so much Len. I really like your quote… it is so true and real. I really have always tried to keep my head up and look for the positives… they can be found even in the worst of times if we simply allow ourselves to see them. Prayer and Faith both help us to keep our eyes on Him and His plan. God bless you and your family Len. πŸ€—πŸ™

    Oh, so true, and what a clear portrayal you gave us! Even when we feel like we must “hunker down,” we still must remain in our Father’s Hand and go where (and how) He leads.
    The first sentence in your post reminds me of 1 Peter 1.5-7 And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.
