I haven’t posted a Thought from Jasmine in a VERY long time. It’s been on my “to do list” for days, weeks and months; yet I never find the time to post but that’s changing today!
My life took a big change on June 18, 2012 when I was informed that I was being “displaced” by my employer for the past 8 years. Truth be told (since I’m being honest) it was beyond time for me to go and the “displacement” I experienced was the forced motivation I needed to get moving.
Moving to what?????
That’s the million dollar answer! I’ve always been one of those people that appeared to be a “free spirit” but in reality I was a very calculated and planned person. I didn’t make a move unless I had a pretty clear understanding of what the outcome was going to be and was able to see the entire picture and since I’m being honest that’s probably the reason I overstayed my time with my previous employer. I knew I needed to move on and I wanted to move on but I couldn’t see the full picture and that scared me.
So this is a new walk for me. A walk in UNCERTAINTY, a walk in TRUST and a walk in FAITH! I’m not sure what exactly the end will be. I still have my “list” of things to do, places to go, people to meet, experiences to experience and I know without a doubt I’ll scratch off the all things on my list. But ask me where I’m going to be living 6 months from now and I can’t answer that question and probably for the first time in my life I’m okay with the UNCERTAINTY.
My mom gave me a scripture to stand on in August and it’s been my guiding principle during this walk of uncertainty, trust and faith. Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight (Proverbs 3:5-6).
Have you ever walked in uncertainty, trust and faith?
Here’s a link to a little exercise I did to further practice walking in uncertainty, trust and faith…ENJOY!
