Where do I belong?

It may seem strange to some but with all the changes I am going through I feel a sense of not belonging anywhere.  I have been through this before and I lean on the Lord more than ever and K-love and it works.

God is invoking changes that can be scary and lonely.  The desires of my heart are changing and what I need and want are weighing on me more so than usual. I ask myself “Am I working hard enough and am I using my time wisely?”, “What can I do to gain peoples faith in me?” and “Am I where I should be?”.  Seeking knowledge and wisdom to help myself and others as Single parents but praying that my journey will not be so lonely in the near future.  Most people want to have love, and marriage but we are human and it doesn’t always workout the way we had hoped.  However, God uses our choices for the greater good; by falling we have the opportunity to seek him and rise again in his light.  God’s light will reveal all area’s of our life that need to be repaired.

With all the wonderful and exhausting changes I know that I am blessed but I still feel as though I am alone but I know God has his reasons. The one thing I will never do is give up hope.  I may have a bad day but no one’s lack of faith in me will shake my faith in Jesus and God our father.

With all these feelings I had the urge to watch “Baby Boom” yesterday; I love that movie.  It is a funny comedy with love and sorrow and of course a happy ending for a hopeless romantic like myself. We do not always get what we want but he provides us with all that we need.

Isaiah 58:11  

The Lord will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame.

Phil 4:19

And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus..

Oh boy, oh boy, Change!!

Today, I awoke with the sense of more changes are coming.  I was reading in Jeremiah about the battle of Babylon and the destruction of the city because of their sin.  God’s wrath has been raised and he says its time to change their ways.  The wicked will be destroyed and the city walls will be burned down; no man will be left standing in the city for his sin has run his life into the grave.

Change is not always good but it can be great.  God takes the bad of the changes in our lives and uses them for the greater good.  That is why we are to thank him for all things good and bad, tears and joy.

The best thing about change is that you rarely know when it is coming.  I may feel like more change is coming but I do not know exactly what it is.  I have been working hard to balance my life and my budget but boy oh boy do I get the hiccups.  What do you do when you know it’s time for a change?

When I need an environment change but can’t always leave town I clean and declutter which is great when your mad or sad too.  You really clean by moving furniture into new spots of the rooms if possible so that when you go to sit or lay down you get a whole new perspective as you enjoy the cleanliness and newness of your hard work. Try it!
