I’ve not been in the best place recently. Thank you for allowing me to take a quick break. I’m happy to report that I am feeling SO MUCH better!
I don’t share the personal details of my life on this public platform. However, as a writer, I use real life experiences to create content. I want to be real with you.
I was thrust into circumstances I did not ask for. Again. (Hello 2012, is that you?)
I’m not sure of much in this life, but I’m positive of these three things:
1) God is faithful. People are going to let you down. You’ll meet people who aren’t who they say they are. I’m done experiencing this, please and thank you. Friends disappoint and disappear. Humans are selfish. We were born that way. But God. He’s EXACTLY who He says He is and will never let you down.
2) God is constant. Newsflash: He never changes. He’s ALWAYS the same. Write that down. People move away. People stray. But God. He’s the same yesterday, today and forever.
3) This world is not my home. We weren’t made for this world. This isn’t the way it was supposed to be. The pain. The suffering. It wasn’t drawn in the original design. The good news? We’ve seen the blueprint. No more tears. No more heartache. Only peace and perfection.
This isn’t a sob story. Please don’t leave with that message. God has been good to me. I have a good life. A really good life. I have a family who loves and supports me. I have a small, but fiercely loyal, circle of friends. I love my church and am working my dream job. I’m FINE. (Trying really hard to refrain from referencing FRIENDS here!)
We worked in Charleston for a few days last week. While watching the boys play in the hotel pool, I talked to a friend on the phone. She and her husband were packing up to leave their vacation home and she was telling me everything they were doing to secure the house.
“It’s hurricane season, you know,” she said.
I do know.
I’ve anchored my heart and am prepared to weather whatever storms blow my way.
