Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter. — Izaak Walton

Growth in life is essential for change. Unfortunately, most growth occurs during difficult times. I experienced some unfortunate difficult years. The crazy thing is that I wouldn’t change them for anything. I grew so much, growth that has transformed my life. My life may still not look exactly how I would like it to, but it is what I make of it today. Each and every single day I can make a good day or a bad day. It is my choice and one that I am aware of every morning. Get this, half way through a bad day I can choose to make it a good day by changing my thoughts.
After a few years of giving advice from my own growth and a few people telling me to write a book or start a blog, here I am. Sharing the things that may never be read, why? Why not? If it helps one person, then I am doing something good.
I read a few years ago that the best place to be is when you have nothing to lean on but faith! Oh my did I not grasp that when I was at that point. It is true though! God was with me all along whether I felt Him with me or not, He was there!
I was in a place where I thought God stopped caring, or maybe He didn’t exist because why would He let me endure such a difficult experience that I could find my way out of? He was working on me to become stronger and He had a purpose. I was being selfish and asked God for a big sign that I couldn’t miss, something obvious that He cared about me. God delivered as He always does!
It doesn’t matter how many you invite to your pity party, you’ll be the only one who wants to be there.
We don’t get to sit back and do nothing with cake at our pity party while God does the work. We have to put the effort in, we have to want the life God has planned for us, and we have to have faith in God. If you have faith that if you put in the effort in life, God will be there and lead you in the right direction.
The problem is we occasionally miss the sign, the lifeline, the big red bus that God is saying, “this way.” We go our way because that is what we want God to have planned for us, but eventually we get the point. When we put Him first, life has meaning.
That is where I was a few years ago. God said this is going to hurt, but man you are going to learn to live with purpose, love harder, live better, and grow so much. It was worth it, every bit of it was worth it. The tears, the doubts, the falling to my knees praying that I would get through the day, it was worth it. I didn’t know that I could have faith this strong and I have bad days, but I am happier than I have ever been. Trust me, it is difficult somedays, but He is waiting for you to turn to Him.
People think I am crazy when I say, “I wouldn’t change anything in my past.” Why would anyone in their right mind choose to suffer? Well, I can’t say I would choose to suffer again, however I learned lessons that made me a better person. I gained a new perspective that I could have never achieved had I not experienced those things.
