In a world so fraught with uncertainty, there only two things in this world you can count on. It is hard to be strong all the time in this life, in fact if you try you will fail and fail horribly. The harder you try to be strong alone, the weaker you are. You can only ever be truly strong when you give it all to God.

And that my friends is first and most important lesson I have learned that I can on in this world. God. I can count on him to be there every time. Even in a moment, in hours, weeks, months and yes even years where it seems he is not. He is there. He has a plan so much greater than anything we can come up with in for our lives.

Those moments that seem failure and fear seem to be winning, they are not. They are merely something that God will use for something greater. Do we always know what the greater is, of course not. Sometimes we never even find out what that greater is. Does that mean it does not exist, of course not. God is bigger, so much bigger than we cannot even begin to fathom how much bigger than us.

You can always count on him, you can always turn to him. That is the first and most important thing to know in this life. God. He is above all and foremost the most important thing in our life.

I know that many aren't believers and that is your choice. But for me, this my choice and I do not have to defend it, I only have to believe it which I do.

The other thing which I have learned you may count in this world of uncertainty, is just that. Everything is changeable. Anything can change in the blink of an eye. What you knew to be true yesterday may not in fact be true today. What is true today, may not be true tomorrow. It all can change in the blink of eye, faster even.

What can we do to prepare ourselves for unpreparedness. You can think you prepare, you can try to prepare but you never fully prepare yourself for your life. It comes. It just is. You can make choices for what is in front of you, but that does not mean what you choose to happen will happen. The things you most count on and prepare may never come to be.

The most important thing you to do to combat this is go with the flow. Be positive in any light. Turn the bad into something good. It can be done. I have done many times over. It is not easy of course but it the only way to get through this life without being an Eeyore.

In a life filled with uncertainly, God can give you the certainty of him.

I pray that each of you, has the life you are meant to have and that we all get the most out of it.

Be the Blessing

There are moments in life that tell you about others. Moments that tell how good people can be or how bad people can be. We have had both those moments in a short amount of time. Life can become very interesting very fast, and that my friends is when the baby and the bathwater begin to count.

Many of you know that my wonderful husband lost his job a couple of weeks ago due to a fire. He was given one week of pay and then let go. He has been looking for a job since, pretty much every single day.

That moment was us gasping for breath! What was going to happen to us. How was this going to play out. How... How was this going to work.. How was that going to get paid.. How... How...

and immediately followed by the ultimate why... why why why.. We can ask that question a thousand time and never know the answer. I am choosing to believe that all this is a blessing in disguise. That does not mean that I am struggling to keep my head above water emotionally, or that I am not worried about the finances. I can choose to believe and still struggle...

So the moment when we saw the bad was how this situation was going to be handled. Quite frankly, badly and without care of the what was going to happen to the employees.  It showed how much one person with power can do. They can make a crappy situation better or make it worse.

And the moment of good.. When the people that care about you rally around, both in prayer and in tangible ways to make it less scary. Those are the people that make me want to be one of them. I want to be them someday.

I want to thank each of those! We are truly blessed to have you in our lives.

Each situation shows how the good or bad can show through, but the lesson I guess to make sure you always choose to be the good and not the bad..

I choose again to believe that this is a blessing in disguise.
