Good morning lovas 🙂
You know what the beauty in yesterday and today is throughout this transition? (Ha, I say throughout like I’m months in or something – It really did began before the actual move though). Anyway, the beauty — other than the fact that I’m making great progress and truly feel the prayers of people lifting me up (thank you If you are one), I’m wanted. That is the great blessing that I’m choosing to recognize today.
I have to be me, so that If you don’t love me, I’ll agree.
Although I was in a funk about being here, everyone around me has welcomed me back into their lives with open arms and seriously could not wait until I returned. Now, I do know my worth, but honestly, a part of me can not quite put my finger on why or what I’ve done exactly (other than being me) to make them love me so much, but I appreciate it, love them back, and had to stop and say thank you Lord that I am wanted. What did I say or do before I left? Hmm. I may not be wanted everywhere or by everyone I’d like to be wanted by, or even in the way that I desire to be wanted, but I am wanted here, and here is where I am called to be for such a time as this. I had to repent ya know, although I have a right to feel what I feel…I was a little snippy with God and who am I to question my creator? He was like hold up, wait a minute little girl lol…feel how you feel but don’t.get.cra-zy! I got this just like I had that. Did we forget already? ha.
This transition could definitely be worse. It’s for my good.
I heard and was reminded last night that there’s no way that we can have a genuine appreciation for a good day without having some bad ones. I’m sure it seems like I never have a bad day. Key word: seems. But I most certainly do, I’m just generally optimistic and usually the person in my relationships who listens and encourages people through their bad days which somehow in the midst works in my favor and ends up encouraging myself. I also have the most amazing bff who is absolutely excellent at reading me – such a beautifully honest friend, prayer partner, checker (she calls it how she sees it); She is the epitome of iron that sharpens iron. She’s got plenty of years under her belt though so I really can’t compare anyone to her Gold Member status (ha). I keep telling her she needs to write a manual for my husband-to-be, fa real! That would probably be the best wedding gift ever. Well, If he reads it lol.
The good in today, this present time, was that there was bad in yesterday, a past time, that led me to gratitude. The good in today, and hopefully tomorrow, a future time, is that I’m loved and I’m wanted. So, like many days I pray, Lord, If I don’t get anything else accomplished today, help me to love and still, I will have accomplished much.
