What if…. what if part of my calling is to help those who are grieving? What if that is what God plans to make out of all of this? When I think about why I have experienced so much loss over time and even in this short amount of time lately (more has happened that I have not been able to share), I just think maybe this is part of preparing me to serve and minister to others in the future.
And I have to say – I am not a fan. I don’t like experiencing this to learn how to help others. I like to help others but would really appreciate learning something less painful.
What if….my calling is to help women? With all kinds of issues – grief, loss, raising kids, dealing with addictions, dealing with mental illness, self image..
What if that is my calling?
Feb 3, 2016 – What if indeed.
Feb 3, 2016 – So what if it is your calling? Or, what if it’s just a learning curve? You know, some kind of message from the universe (ha, I love that term.) A message that you are not alone! That darnded if life IS NOT the bed of roses the romantics and self help authors would have us believe if we just live by a set of certain rules. Maybe it’s a message that you are in fact no exception to life’s everyday ups and downs and that the older you get the more you experience and hopefully the wiser you become. A message that indeed as we grow older we all face more challenges and how we handle those challenges will be what helps us redefine ourselves and grow closer to God every single day! Ive said it once here but its worth repeating. Youre not alone. Many have experienced as much if not more. Have they handled it as well? I don’t know. I know you’ve done well.
You know maybe you’ve just experienced so much because you’re a beautiful person with a big heart open to many people. It stands to reason when you are open to that many people you will be available to witness and experience that much more heart ache and loss. Of course, you also know I do love playing the Devils advocate and what you said above is probably more than adequatr. LOL!!! XOXO
