Wow! When you find yourself in the places you never expected to be, God reminds you of His love and sovereignty.
After you’ve done the same thing at the same place for so long, there’s a finality that exists. Feelings that you’ll be doing that same thing forever, not negative feelings and yet not positive feelings either. Then something out of left field happens and you now have a choice. Do you accept what happened and retreat into nothingness, or do you see the silver lining and accept the challenges of a new opportunity to prove yourself?
I really didn’t have a choice to retreat. I’m not that guy, especially since I have my family to provide for. I was blessed to receive a position with greater potential then what I had for so many years. I now am able to get out in front and lead others to greatness. I’m excited for the challenge, and know it will take a lot of personal development and teamwork.
I’m very grateful for these new opportunities, and so thankful for the relationships and experiences that have made it possible. I was humbled, and my faith tested, but God was with me the entire way. I’m thankful for his presence in my life, and grateful for everything He will use me for in the coming time.
These last several months have been the epitome of an emotional rollercoaster. When you are forced out of your comfort zone the next day can be scary. I have to commit to a greater work ethic and greater dependence on those around me. I can’t do it on my own. The one thing that has been apparent is how blessed my family and I are. I definitely don’t deserve the opportunities I have had, and the new opportunity I have been given, but I am so grateful for those blessings. I appreciate each new day.
Throughout every situation in life I have realized this: I do not deserve the blessings in life, but God gives them because He loves me. It’s His love that will always give me the courage and strength.
