This past week had lots of ups and lots of downs. I felt some things I hadn’t ever before, and they were profound! Much of the week, I was so sleep deprived that I couldn’t see the big picture.
This morning, when I opened my planner, this quote summarized it perfectly… And my heart felt an abundance of peace.
“There is no chance, no destiny, no fate, that can circumvent, or hinder or control the firm resolve of a determined soul.”
Ella Wheeler Wilcox
In my personal life, this determined soul opened my eyes to a very real spiritual miracle! God lead me to the right people, in a matter of a few hours. Under His name, In 48 hrs, someone I love rose from ventilation and weakness, laying enraged in a hospital bed, to oneriness and all the familiar color I remember 💖, doing therapy and flabbergasting the hospital staff!
In addition to physical healing, there’s been emotional healing. I’ve been in communication with a family member of my loved one. It’s restoration of a relationship I’ve wanted for quite some time.
My sleep schedule has also tried to work it’s crap on my soul. My baby needed a doctor visit. Thursday night I got 4 hours of sleep, and I felt I was going to be too tired to drive. I made it, though. God’s the provider of Strength. Yes, I would go to the moon on no sleep if my kids needed something… But, God’s Strength sure is welcoming.
I am in awe of this insight. The timing of our lives’ events are EXACTLY as they’re meant to be. They are in the proper order… Though we don’t always see and/or understand why. If we were to CHOOSE when, where, what, how, and with whom every moment, how would our humanness make a mess of things. What blessings would we miss? Would we gain wisdom and healing? Would we voluntarily do things, that resulted in AWESOME WONDER, if we knew we’d hate doing them? Would we have be good people? Would we be humble and grateful? Would there be balance? Would this world know peace?
My mind is a constant movement, piecing connections together, to feel the bigger picture. With Hope, Faith, and God’s gift of a Determined Soul, I walk my life. It’s a challenge, but the rewards are unexplainably extraordinary 😍
No one is ever able to say God isn’t real when Faith is bigger than fear!
