I found this picture that describes my week. The word for this week is CHAlleNGE! But you cannot spell challenge without change.
Challenges always bring changes. It doesn’t matter what it is, goals at work, fitness, learning a new skill, they all make you change and most of the time for the better. And that’s where I am now. With every challenge I have encountered this week, I’ve realized it’s a change that needed to be made. Rather I saw that it needed to be made or God saw the bigger picture and made the change.
We have to trust challenges that bring changes. I believe the challenge of the pandemic has brought changes we could never think possible. Some changes we may like and some we may not but we have to trust that it was all for the best and that’s the way the dots connected. The teacher is always present making us stronger and better.
We have to remember that if those challenges bring changes that shut doors, we should be thankful for the doors that shut that protected us from something worse. And it can always be worse. I know it’s hard to say “thankful I broke down in the driveway and not on the road.” but being thankful for what it’s not should always be said.
Let’s embrace the challenge. Be thankful for doors that closed to protect us. Allow the teacher to teach. And remember to speed up and keep going, we wanna see what happens if we don’t give up.
