I wonder what it’s going to feel like to not see snow again.
Snowflakes have been a part of me for most of my life. They are even tattooed on my body.
I’m still trying to wrap my mind around the fact that I am no longer where I was.
I know I have struggled since moving here. Not with getting a job or finding a place to live because all of that basically fell into my lap. God easily provided.
I’ve struggled with fighting my own wants over finding my true purpose for being here. I find myself looking for the easy way.
I haven’t yet adjusted to my life here which is a weird thing for me. I generally look for new places and adventures. But there’s something different about it this time.
One thing I need to remember is the God never fails. He made sure I made it here.
I also need to remember to be thankful for that even when things aren’t going my way or how I think they should be going.
I’ve got to stop only praising Him when things are good and I’m getting what I want. That’s acting like a very spoiled child.
No, if I’m going to trust him like I say I do I need to praise him when things are confusing or hard and know that He is strengthening me.
I am here for change and opportunity. I’ve had to remind myself more than once that I am capable. I moved 1700 miles away, alone, with no job, no home and a very unsure future.
So, I need to keep this in mind when I’m afraid and tell myself, “not everything that is faced can be changed but nothing can be changed until it’s faced. “James Baldwin.
Change is uncomfortable and can be downright scary. But sometimes it’s necessary.
Keep up the good fight friends. Kindness….spread it!
