Today as I sit here looking out my office window, I find myself reflecting on the year gone by. 2011 has been, to say the least, a fast year….for being so quick it certainly has made a huge impact! In particular I find myself reflecting on friends. This year I have lost a few friends, but gained one amazing friend and associated myself with a group of women who are beautiful, amazing and wise! God says….”To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:” Ecclesiastes 3:1 and that is, for me, the explanation as to why I must lose people at times in my life. I do not try to figure out the why of it, I just try to remember; for everything there is a season and things change; change does not have to be a bad thing, it can be a good thing. All change is growth and all growth leads me closer to God. I tell myself…..“remember that, remember these words, these truths, when the time comes….when it is so hard to understand why things happen!”
And that time will come….challenges arise…that is when I need to cling to that verse and believe! I pray daily….”God let me remember, when the times are hard, that there is a reason for all things under heaven”
May you all know this as your truth and then….. Believe & Remember! Especially when you face the challenges that will come one day! God never said life was without challenges! HE only said that HE would carry you through…if you let Him!
Peace and Love~
