Today is a bittersweet day for me. Today is the day that I move out of my beautifully decorated office space. For well over a year this space has been my refuge. My prayer room. My sanctuary. My hiding place. My healing place. My peace. My creative space. My thinking space. My woman cave. And, today, I’m moving out.
Some may think that I am taking a step back. Sometimes you have to take those ‘steps back’ and create a dance. A sort of life ‘tango’. The one where you take one step backward, one step forward. Two steps backward; two steps forward. And so on. Yes, I could think negatively about that, but then what would I be saying about all that I believe in? What would I be saying about my destiny? What would I be showing the world? My clients? Myself? For that matter, what would I be saying about God? Do I truly believe that all things work together for good?
This is where Faith comes in. When I start thinking about that mustard seed that I’ve been handing out. The substance of things hoped for. The evidence of things not seen. This is where Jehovah Jireh comes in. El Shaddai – the God who is more than enough. As a person who is persistently optimistic, I start to ‘look at the benefits’ of working from home. I think of the money I will save. The home office tax deduction. The fact that I will now have more access to my children when they get home from school. Looking at this bright side is a conscience choice that I have made. It is how I choose to live my life.
You may be going through a difficult season in your life. Whether your challenge has been going on for one week, several months, one year or many, many years – one thing is absolutely true. God loves you and whether or not you have been perceptive of His presence, He is and always will be there. He is the type of God who will wait for you. He is really real. No matter how or what you may think about Him – tell Him about it. He knows. He understands. His grace is there for you to receive. Just simply ask him. Just pray. If you are unsure about how to pray. I wrote about that very subject here. Check it out. It is very practical.
I ask you. Where are you today? Are you living in fear, doubt, despair, depression – the life draining state of being? Or are you living in belief, hope and faith? At the end of the day. It is your choice. I invite you to choose faith – it is life giving.
Thank you for making it all the way to the end. If this resonated with you and you’d like to receive more in the future,
