Embrace Your Lane
I've missed my blog and I'm so happy to be back today.
So much has been going on in my life. Much good. Some sad. Plenty testimony worthy. Chief being my two older children turning 22 and 19 respectively this month. Even typing that stuns me. Me? Mother to two grown people? That alone is proof that there is a God. And He is amazing in His Goodness.
I got to visit, for the first time in my life, another European country other than the United Kingdom. It was a work trip but still I bless God for the opportunity to visit the Netherlands. I tell you one thing. I've not seen that many bicycles is one place in my life! Lol! Most people go about from place to place on their bikes and from what I could tell, the cyclists are not sending you! You better not get in their way o! They have their own lanes and all. I kept laughing to myself. Come and try this in my country. Anyway, 2016 has been hectic work wise but I feel fulfilled every day. I'm learning so much on my new role and every day I experience God's help in new ways.
My trip taught me something all over again. God is the Master of the Game of my life. There were times over the years that I felt 'things were passing me by'. I'm not overly hungry to get to the top of some corporate ladder but I don't want to be motionless either. I don't believe in stressing over promotions because I know promotions come in different ways. Ways that mean more to me than just moving up one grade or earning more money. Still, I couldn't help feel somewhat 'left behind' on some low days. But today, look at how things have panned out. In a flash, God turned things around for me. I'm still coming to terms with it all and some days, actually almost every day, I ask God to come and do His work o! But I appreciate the 'stretch'. That's how you grow.
Anyway, my point is this: Embrace your lane. If God is in control of your life. Or should I say if you have given control of your life to God, then your lane will take you exactly where you were destined to be. In God's beautiful-not-always-the-way-you-prayed-it-but-always-more-spectacular time.
What to do while you wait?
Do YOU and committ to enjoying every bit of your NOW.
Fully embracing my lane and focussing on the full part of my glass.
P.S. Did I tell you I got to see my AburoSister in Den Haag? I worked all day and we gisted all night till my eyes couldn't stay open any longer. Sometimes, I would wake up, look over my shoulder at her sleeping and as I laid my head back on my pillow, I knew no one could ever EVER convince me that God wasn't real.
