What do you do when things are not turning out quite like you thought? Keep moving.
I am going through that. I accepted a job in a new city and I have been working for the last three and a half months. I am grateful for the job, but after I pay my bills, I don’t have any money to do much else; not even really save. I will be quite honest…the situation is puts me in a bad place. I have worked so hard just have my head above water. It is really trying my spirit.
Lately I have not been my normal self. I have been slightly more mean; less enthusiastic. Trying to stay focused and positive is work these days.
After a couple of conversations with God, I was reminded that I need to remember some things:
1. God is my source. This job isn’t my source. Although I don’t have everything I want, I am not worried how my expenses will be paid. I have to continue to swim in thankfulness.
2. I am here for a reason. Nothing happens by coincidence. My steps are ordered, and those steps will not always be comfortable.
3. This is a season. Everything will not be easy; but it will be worth it because this is one more step to your ultimate destiny.
I am determined to stay positive, even when I just don’t want to. I am determined to ride this season out with as much joy and grace as I can. I will maximize my time and enjoy life in spite of not having much financial means outside of my expenses. My moons are still aligning and I will keep moving and not waste time sulking.
