"Learn to get in touch with the silence within yourself, and know that everything in life has purpose.
There are no mistakes, no coincidences, all events are blessings given to us to learn from."
- Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
Ross was a Swiss-born psychiatrist and the author of the groundbreaking book On Death and Dying
I know that today's quote is especially poignant for me.
My intent the last week has been to really listen in silence and figure out where God is leading me and what I am to do once there.
It's interesting, I lament some days because I do not have a "job" outside my home right now.
And believe me, we are struggling.
But whenever I mention this to others, usually older more wizened friends, they all say the same thing:
"there is a reason you are at home, trust in Him".
I believe this is true but have yet to discover said reason.
I wonder if I am not working because my intentions are not in the right place.
It seems like, from reading my previous posts, I am only interested in a job.
Not a career.
In making money to spend it , not to save.
To be able to purchase what I want when I want.
Not what we need.
I am going about this all wrong.
I have to change my attitude.
God does not make mistakes.
He knows exactly what He is doing and I need to focus more on the blessings and less on the shortcomings.
We have a lovely home.
An awesome kid.
A fabulous family
and best of all
we have each other!
So today, I challenge everyone to just be silent and be still.
Listen to that inner voice that guides you.
You never know where it may lead but chances are it's exactly where you're supposed to be!
