Still Moving Forward

God always tells me when I'm about to walk through a different door.  He told that I would lose my husband a full year before it happened.  I remember those days vividly, going on as if I didn't know, all the while knowing that each day was getting closer to the last.  Of course I tried to change the future.  I spent months telling him to take better care of himself, to stop working so many hours, to eat better, to exercise.  I even sat him down and told him that what he was doing would kill him.  Of course he didn't believe me.  So here I am.  
The Holy Sprit tells us things to come.
A few months ago God prepared me for another change.  I'm in the mist of it now.  I've gone from living in an apartment to owning my own home.  This was something that I hadn't even considered doing.  So it's a huge change for me.  But an even bigger change has occured:  I've let go of fear.  It feels like I woke up one day and fear had left the building.  Before I spent all my time worrying about losing my job, being alone, health, money, you name it.   Then fear walked out and I scarcely think of any of it.   My sales have picked up too, since I don't obsess over quotas.  I'm comfortable in my body and mind.  It's an incredible change for me, a boldness that I never thought I could obtain.  And all I can say is wow!

Happy for you! I never have thought of myself as being fearful, but I am very much a worrier! Thanks for sharing your success. Take care :)

.fear seems to keep a person frozen in time/place, not being able to move on....(yeah, I know that doesn\'t seem possible and some don\'t want to hear that) but from my own experience I know that fear, being afraid doesn\'t do one good. Other than making you look older and taking a lot out of you spending time that could be used in better ways.....so proud of you....hugs, Sandi
