My 40 Days of Intention Experiment: Day 10

My intention for today is to find rest.

I pause today to meditate, relax, laugh,find joy, and to give thanks for my amazing life!

In the reading this morning I am challenged to be strong, courageous, and steadfast in my resolve.

I’ve written in my blogs over the years about the winding and sometimes bumpy road that I’ve taken.  This week has thrown me a few more curves than I would like to have experienced.

Without getting into the minutia and fine details I will say I’ve been challenged, yet I’m still here.  I’ve needed to “suck-it-up buttercup” and face things head on.  I’m still here.  I feel like I’m being tested and tried.  I’m still here.

Any time you face major life changes there can be surprises.  For me this week it’s been about finding new paper work that needs completing.  A Pastor I worked with once would say “the devil’s in the details”. Well if you consider “the devil” as being a liar and one who can take you off course then I stand with that statement.

Very bumpy road in hot summer

What I’ve learned this week:
* there will always be bumps in the road
* the details can, if you let them, put you in the ditch
* I’m stronger because I faced it all with courage and conviction
* all these extra pieces of paper and crossing T s and dotting i s is strengthening my  resolve
* I am not alone on this journey

And, what a journey this is.  I have two choices to face each day.

  1. I either can do a thing
  2. or I don’t

Holding tightly to my conviction, receiving council from those I trust and continuing to remain in my walk with God has helped me so far.  There is no need to change my path.

My journey continues……

  1. The road can be hard, indeed, but that experience, then makes other things seem a lot easier……
