TITLE: BLESSINGS

This is a piece I wrote after a particularly hard time in my life, after I looked in the rearview mirror, and saw the hands of God in every step I had taken toward healing.
Life’s blessings are not always what they seem. An event that brings about unwanted change in one’s life is often viewed as a curse at first because it brings to an end an era in one’s life.

As human beings we ask God why He allowed this to happen to us? Did we do something to anger Him that He would allow us to fall so hard? We do not know what the creator has in store for us. His wisdom He does not share, so like petulant children we sit and cry about the unfairness of life.

As we get further away from that bump in the road; or what I refer to as the leap of faith, the going gets less rough and we begin to see the creation of a new more amazing dream.
It is then we understand that our Father in heaven always knows what is best. Even when we think He has left us we turn and find Him right by our side, guiding our daily lives.

When we stop to listen we find that He always had a plan for us, it is simply that we were too involved in the moment to understand what He was attempting to tell us all along.
God blesses us with change it is not a punishment but merely a u-turn, which guides us right back into His loving arms, where I always want to remain.

Life is an adventure, and God is the solid rock that keeps our feet on the ground, and our heads out of the clouds. If we take ourselves too seriously we fail to enjoy the precious gifts in life that God has given us. What a waste of life, and love, for as Jesus said, “I have come that they may have life, and have it more abundantly” John 10:10 (NKJV)
