This has been such a vivid season for me recently. Sometimes we expect these wonderful showers of blessings to continually rain down on us when we feel like we are on top of the world, and then sometimes, the shower seems to slow down and life seems to become a little more… normal.
We go from living from hi to hi and we get used to the thrills of new seasons and exciting opportunities. And then once all of that settles, you look around and realize you are in a new place that you never expected to be and you’re not quite sure how to find your purpose. Maybe you thought your life mural would be filled with blues and greens and organic shapes and then you look up and there’s lots of red and orange splattered across the canvas. Has this ever happened to you?
Honestly, I wish I had the answer to figuring out how to manage these uncertainties in life. I wish I had a 1, 2, 3 step-by-step list of ways to walk through these times. But all I can say is that when a part of your life looks nothing like you pictured it to be, keep reaching towards your goals and taking steps and pretty soon, one way or another, you will realize the mural of your life is that much richer. No matter what colors, shapes, or brushstrokes appear on your canvas, know that they each tell a story and have shaped you into your own unique masterpiece.
So friends, have you ever felt this way? And if so, what did you do to keep moving and keep walking through your season?
