I have been unemployed for almost a year now and out of the office environment since May 2012. For most of that time I was stressed about what I was going to do and how I would support my family. I forgot to pay attention to and enjoy what God had offered me. Time to be with my family and time to start my life anew. Time to enjoy my days and be relaxed in the evening not worrying about the office work that I needed to do the next day.
Although I did have my good moments while being home, it hasn’t been until now that I can truly appreciate where I am in my life. I can appreciate being able to be home with my son and having time to help my daughter with college applications. I love not being so exhausted that I cannot prepare a meal for my family. Where I am, although there are still some struggles that I am experiencing, is good. The Bible says we should be thankful in all things. Now I can say that despite the troubles ahead I really am.
I choose today not to focus on the problems but to focus on the faith that will help me to move mountains and to appreciate the change that God is bringing me to. Even though it is a little painful I can handle it and will move forward with peace in my heart.
