A Day of Reflection | What’s Your Story?
As I sit and have a day of reflection on my life over the past few years I can totally see God’s hand in my life.
I will never forget walking into my job where I had been for 6 yrs to find my stuff boxed up and my job was done. I had never been let go from a job, EVER. I was devastated to say the least. I felt like a total failure that day. I questioned God. I asked Him “why me? I am a GOOD employee!” “Why would you take a good paying job away from me?” and the only answer that kept going through my mind was “Karen, TRUST ME.” Little did I know it was God just re-positioning me to where he wanted me to be at this time of my life. I would have never dreamed I would be a photographer (although I have always love photography) & never dreamed I would have a part time job where I can sometimes breathe words of hope to those in need desperate of it & have a boss there that makes my job a joy to have. I know God is in the center of it all.
I love where I am in my life. God may move me to a different place at some point of my life but for now, I cherish the clients he sends me, I cherish the family that He’s given me and I cherish my husband who is my biggest supporter.
Sharing our stories can be a light for others. Do any of you have times in your life where you can see God was with you all along? Story of comfort, hope or forgiveness? I would love to hear it and share it on my blog. You can email it to firstname.lastname@example.org or simply post it here.
So, to any of you who are going through tough times, pray & trust God. He may just simply be re-positioning you for greater things.
