Change Has Come!

It’s been a while since my last post. Going through transition isn’t always easy but anything worth it seldom is!

I now live in Las Vegas…who would have thought my path would lead me here, where the summer temperatures are consistently in the 100’s.

I’ve wanted to run back to the familiar, the safe, and the comfortable with familiar paths, family and friends. Job connections and options are plenty. I would survive because I know what to do!!! I’ve walked that path many times, its second nature.

But no, I’ve been called to another level of trust, another level of obedience.

How many people have said, “Lord send me, I’ll go wherever you lead me.”

Well, how about the desert where your daily bread is Him and your provision you have to trust him for?

Can and will you really walk through the Valley not knowing how long or how rough it’s going to get before it gets better?

My Valley is a desert and the people around me can’t encourage me or lead me out. What do I do? Get mad at them or God? Should I have expected a place of comfort and provision just because I‘m following God’s leading!

Well, I can expect that, but still I knew it could be challenging yet I had faith that I would make it through and all would be well. (And it’s finally getting there).

However, in the midst were confusion, doubt, and a meltdown…”Why me Lord, did I miss it? My God, my God I know you haven’t forsaken me but it sure feels like it at this moment,” or “This too shall pass but not soon enough for me!”

Yep, new and uncharted territory when you are all alone can and will stir up mixed emotions even fear. Still each time I had to encourage myself and others called to encourage me as well.

They are my biggest cheerleaders and support.

I live in a place where the homeless is everywhere you turn and the people next to you can find themselves in the same homeless state and one person has and another person and her child is on their way. That I know of!

Complacency is way of life for some. They want more but don’t have the desire to pursue it. It’s easier to sit and complain and scheme to buy more time just to sit and do nothing until it’s time to scheme again. This vicious cycle that has become second nature to far too many.

Even the homeless get up and hunt for plastic bottles and cans in the heat to get money, while those with struggling to maintain a roof over their heads just murmur and complain or laugh and make fun of until…then they want someone to help them and get mad when no-one can or will.

Ironic isn’t it! Standing on the street corner with a sign for help or Going to your next door neighbor who you hardly know to ask for the same thing…is there a difference in the need?

Change has definitely come and it’s a learning experience of real life up close and personal.

 

My life has changed because I have changed.

Cleansing Waves

Everyday, waves wash upon the sand and erase any trace of what was there before.

We should choose to forget those things we say we have forgiven others for leaving no trace of ever being wounded.

What Do You See/Imagination Is A Beautiful Thing

As I was looking at this picture I rested my head on my hand and thought about walking along the pier, playing in the sand or going down to the water to watch the sun as it sets.

Then I sat up and the picture looked different. The sand no longer looked golden with a bronze tint. Everything was brighter like it was earlier in the day not later in the evening. The clouds were not as dark and the sun wasn’t a brunt orange.

Tell me what you see by looking at it from different angles!

Hugs and Love from me to you!

Going into the darkness or coming out!?

No matter how dark it seems, there is light at the end of the tunnel. Don’t allow yourself to become overwhelmed, fight for your life because you are worth fighting for!!!

Don’t give up keep pressing ahead to your break through!

If you want, I’ll fight along side you.

Hugs and Love from me to you!

Give them roots anchored in love, a puzzle to teach them how to problem solve and wings to soar through the challenges and obstacles on the path of life!

Change!!!

careerchange_2484438b

Everything changes: seasons, environments, people, likes & dislikes, technology, time and you. I recently changed vocations from the Non Profit back to the For Profit sector.

Change is the constant that we all must adapt to at certain points in our lives. Our attitude and how we maneuver through these changes is important.

No matter how challenging change can be, make the decision to embrace it and make it work for you. Fighting against it will only leave you frustrated and spinning your wheels.

Like a wave, you can ride it out or go tumbling along while being thrashed and dragged about. Change is unavoidable.

The good news is… change can be better than you thought and even more rewarding but you’ll never find out if you’re in fear and constantly complaining. You’ll miss the beauty and blessing it brings. Hugs and love from me to you! Valarie

When we become frustrated, we lash out unintentionally; but those on the receiving end have no clue of our internal frustration… they only feel hurt by our angry actions. So we must be conscious when we are struggling not to create a struggle for someone else. ~ WOW ~

Dare to Achieve

Whatever your dreams or aspirations are whether business, home, family, or self-improvement. There always seems to be someone in the way with an opinion on what you’re trying to achieve. I can personally relate because throughout my path in life I have ran across a number of people who either doubted my dreams and aspirations […]
