When I learn about what other people are living with, going through, or have gotten to the end of....I am humbled and reminded that my perspective needs some fine tuning. I know it needs fine tuning and a re-adjustment because I saw my challenges to be a Lot! I labeled some of my situations to be so much of a burden on me and so difficult to grow through.
What I am living with, going through and have gotten to the end of, is not as bad as I made it all out to be.... I am not lessening the impact of my challenges, but I am seeking to always view them from a better perspective than an emotional one.
My emotions always have to have their say, <lol> and that is cool, I realize we are just made this way. But, I limit their length of speaking time by shutting them down, because I am always seeking not just a different perspective, but a better perspective of my challenges. The perspective that the Lord has is what I desire.
I allow my emotions to be released, but control how long I sit in them and allow them to have center stage as I am carried through each challenge and uncomfortable situation within this process that He has created for me.
In this quiet, resting season, it is time to be pruned, restored and made ready to continue to be carried into this new season.
As with all growth and stages of maturity, at each phase of this process I am given the opportunity to re-evaluate many areas of my life.
What I know is that I have made it to today, one I've never seen before, full of experiences, thoughts, love, grace, mercy, forgiveness, correction, beauty, glory and lessons that I have not had before.
I am going to sit and do what I am given to do, for today.
# in the Middle of some things
# saying Yes to Him, and being separated unto Him are not always comfortable places...
# stepping into the re-adjustment portion
# new beginnings, it takes courage to change
