Trust your journey

“Sometimes the not-so-becoming seasons can affect our perspective. But be encouraged. Maybe our journey isn’t always about becoming something but rather, unbecoming, to actually become who we are truly meant to be.”

It’s hard to believe there’s only 29 days left in the year 2020. And for me, that’s a good thing. The past two years have been challenging, to say the least. And now we are in the season of COVID when everything around us looks a little blah. Lifeless. The vivid colors are fading and quickly falling. And just like the weather, life also has its many seasons of change.

I’m a firm believer that it’s in the way we act and react in those hard seasons that defines who we are. I’m also a firm believer that in the way we respond to struggle is also the answer to growth or decline. We can all relate, especially this year, to the struggles we face each day. I, for one, am ready to say goodbye to the hard times for a little while. So, just for a moment, let’s take off the mask and relax. (figuratively speaking)

If we’re honest with ourselves, many times, the struggles we face are brought on by our own weaknesses. But, there are other times when our struggles are caused by another’s weakness. Those difficult situations when it’s beyond our control and no matter how hard we try, we just can’t change it. And when that happens, the majority of the time, we try to fix it. Right? Why do we do that? Why do we set ourselves up for major frustration and disappointment? We do that because our focus is all wrong. Our focus should be on what we can control, not on what we can’t. Whatever that thing is that you can’t control is taking up all your time and energy. It’s actually controlling you. So let it go. Focus on what you can do, not on what you can’t.

Maybe, if we could try to remind ourselves that seasons are temporary. They come and go with a purpose… even the hard seasons of our journey are valuable. I’m not sure where you are in life, but if your journey is hard, right now…know you’re not alone. Be Patient and Trust Your Journey.

When you go through deep waters, I will be with you.

When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown.

When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up;

the flames will not consume you.

Isaiah 43:2

Hey Friend, Welcome to a part of my small world. Because this is called the "About Me" Page, I probably should say a few things about me. Right? Here goes.... I was a Certified Child Development Specialist for over twenty years, while working with infants, toddlers, Pre-K and Head Start..... I am now a Certified (Christian) Breakthrough Life Coach through Life Breakthrough Academy. I could say so much more between the dot, dot, dots...but I'll spare you the boredom. LOL I am the founder of -Her Journey Towards Change- for women who are (for whatever reason) on their journey towards change. I believe everyone needs that 'go to' person in facilitating change. But, sadly, not everyone does. I know what it's like trying to figure life out but can't seem to get past the 'stuck' mindset. The first step to becoming 'unstuck' is being truthful with yourself. Believe me...I know. This is why I started 'Her Journey Towards Change.' I have a passion and purpose for serving God and for serving women. My hope is to provide you with a valuable service in finding clarity in your struggles, accountability in reaching your goals, assisting with strategies through guidance and support, focus on your God-given talents and unique skills, offer positive insights and new perspectives and eliminate the negativity that might be pulling you down. I truly believe God has given women a uniqueness like nothing else in this world. I also believe when we, as women, understand our identity in Christ, we can know our purpose. And in spite of our challenges, we can live in faith with the hope and joy God desires for us. ~Born and raised as a coal miner's daughter in North Central West Virginia is what keeps me humble. My influence as a Christian, wife, mother and grandmother gives me purpose. Living my life to the fullest and making each day count is what keeps me fulfilled. Using my God-given talents for others simply makes me happy...and living for God is what makes me whole.~

  1. Hi Laura,

    I happened to stop on your post today and Now, I believe it was not by chance. It was meant to be. I am currently going through a major shift in mindset and changes in life, some that I can control and more that I can’t control.
    This piece of writing resonates so well with me, I am going to bookmark it and save it for many more reads later.

    Thank you for this post and wishing you the best
