This past weekend I went away to celebrate the birthday of one of my dearest friends and the birthday of another friend. It was a mini vacation that could not have come at a better time. I’ve been on the grind professionally, experiencing some lows and weighing big decisions personally…needless to say there’s been A LOT on my mind.
Sunday morning we woke up early to embark on a sand dunning excursion at the Al Maha Resort (which is AMAZING, more to come at later time). It was a bright morning despite the abundance of clouds in the sky. As our tour guide drove us further out into the desert I saw these rays coming from the sun.
It was a like scene from a movie.
It was beautiful.
It was GOD!
I’ve heard people talk about their encounters with God and I am a person of deep faith but it was something very SPECIAL in that moment of stillness, beauty and LIGHT. It was an encounter with God! It was Providence brightly and boldly reminding me that all things work for the good of those who love him and who have been called according to his purpose.
So my CARPE DIEM moment for the week is remembering to follow the guide that is Providence. As Providence will guide me!
