Here in Wilmington, it was another hot weekend with a sprinkling of thunderstorms which provided a nice break from the heat and a chance to enjoy a nice cup of jo and a good book (currently reading Gone Girl...so far, so good!). There is something about the smell of a storm and rain in the summer that is so soothing to me…This weekend I spent some much needed time at the beach thinking about the future and what that means for the next chapter in my life (a overwhelming thought and feeling), celebrated with some friends at yet another baby shower and watched (along with the rest of the world) the 2012 Olympics!
Thoughts from the weekend….
This past weekend I have repeated one of my favorite bible verses over and over to myself. Proverbs 31:25, “She is clothed in strength and dignity and she laughs without fear of the future.” There are a lot of changes that are happening and will be coming in the next year for me. Some of these changes are welcomed, some are still in the works and some are just down right scary and nerve racking. I know the Lord has provided me with all the skills I need to tackle these changes, I just seem to have misplaced them lately leaving my mind and confidence a wreck…
If I’m going to be honest, change is very unnerving for me. I usually don’t do well with change (it goes completely against my type A personality), but I have learned that you can’t control change (a hard concept for me). Sometimes change just happens and sometimes change needs to happen in order to grow as an individual, to grow as a professional, to grow spiritually and emotionally. This week and in the next coming weeks and months, I need to put my full trust in the Lord’s plan for me and cross my fingers that he knows what he is doing!
