Thought of the Week

In my almost 29 years, I realize that I have learned so much and that God continues to put lessons in front of me to help me continue to learn.

As our life changes, we find out more about ourselves and about the people we share our life with; whether that be friends, family, co-workers, or acquaintances.

One of the newest things I have learned, very recently in fact, is that people who you consider to be a close friend, may not be that way now, and that is okay. It is not a reflection of your character, but rather the changing of a season in your life (or perhaps in that person’s life). I think it is so easy to place the blame for a failed friendship on oneself, rather than seeing it for what it is… being at a different place in your life’s journey. 

So rather than allowing myself to continue to be upset, I am giving it to God. I cannot make people like me, but I know God does, and he has placed people in my life who love me for me, imperfections and all. That is really what we all want isn’t it. To be seen for who we really are and loved for it.

To help me put all of this into perspective, I have been reading Hello, Beauty Full by Elisa Morgan. I am not quite finished yet, but the book really has hit home with me numerous times.

It is so easy to forget how wonderful God has made us, and sometimes we need to reevaluate our thoughts and be reminded. Also, we need to remind others of their wonderfulness as well. 

So my thought/ reminder of the week is this:

When God closes one door, he always makes sure to have another open and waiting on you. We just have to have the courage to reach for the handle and turn the knob. #findingmyfaith #thoughtoftheweek #Godslessons #learning #friendship

Until Next Time,

Momma Rae

Finding my way back to God and trusting in Him is a journey that I am loving. One baby step at a time.
