ENJOYING LIFE MY WAY

Lately, I seem to be enjoying life more. I am not sure when it started, but I am just having a great time. No, I have not won the lottery. But I think in this year of not working, I have found me again and have fallen back in love with me.

I know I mentioned this a couple of months ago, but it is worth talking about again. We hear enough sad stories of lonliness and unhappiness. I would like share some of my joy.

I am still trying to find out what else I want to do, but I am not sad about not having all of the answers. There was a time when not knowing would have completely stressed me out.   But for some reason now, I am ok with where I am.

I am thankful for this inner peace that God has given me. I feel some where in my spirit, that He is preparing me for something great.  I am sure that some will not understand this peace that I have, but I am grateful for it and I am enjoying it.

We put so much pressure on ourselves to be so much to others, that we fail some times to value ourselves. Some of those closet to us tend to not understand us and tend to disappoint us. But I have found out, that God never disappoints us and He always understands our needs.

I have determined that when I keep my thoughts on Him, He gives me exactly what I need. I know for sure that He never gives me more than I can handle, because even when I thought I could not go on, I am still here.

So even if you are not where you think you should be on your journey, if you are reading this, then you are right where God needs you to be.

Kimmie, you are right where you are supposed to be and that reflects the goodness of God! The other day, through a series of wrong turns while traveling, I came across a woman. She had a brightness about her and we exchanged smiles. She was on the phone and I could not help but eavesdrop. The story she was relating resonated with me. It was about her sick mother in ICU. I encountered her again in line when she engaged my girls. We begin talking and ten minutes later we were crying! God had a word for her and he completely used me. He had started setting me up days ago in another conversation with a GF about witnessing. I was so mad and anxious about being off track but at the end of that conversation I knew that God had placed me where I needed to be. Keep blogging and showing yourself to be a woman of faith. You never know who you are touching -- today it was me!

To carter3369, I could only hope to have an impact like she did.

To anonymous, thank you so much for the kind words. It is an awesome feeling when we recognize when we have been used by God. Thank you for sharing and I look forward to hearing from you again.
