Life has it's ups and downs......

...... sometimes it feels like it's just downs. I left for Annual Training with the Army National Guard in August and got back home the first week of September. I did some really amazing things while I was there. We were able to commit a lot of time to training and we also assisted at the Republican National Convention. Coming from such a high point back to normal civilian life didn't go so well with me. I went back to my apartment, back to my civilian job (starbucks), and back to the "same old same old". Over the past two weeks I've had this feeling that I'm not doing anything with my life and that I just had to run from the reality here because it seemed so boring....... Today I came to a different realization though. I finally prayed about my whole situation and God answered me very clearly. I have been so lazy with my personal time with the Lord I'm sad to say. I was able to understand that no matter what situation I'm in, God has made me in His image and I'm here to do His will that He already has planned for me. This life is not about what I want or what I do or do not think is fufilling...... Thru Him EVERYTHING is fufilling! What an amazing realization!!! God is good!

I love this word from the Lord. Thank you for sharing your heart. Wish I was there to give you a "carebear" hug. Big love!

Keep looking "up" to Him as you have even when things seem so "down". Our day to day stuff is our feelings and is temporary. Our relationship with the Lord is fact and eternal ...
