Learning from my past

I heard some sad news today that reminded me of things that happened to me in my past. What I realized was that my past experience helped me get this person through a traumatic situation.  I was grateful that I was able to reach out to this person and share my experience.  She was grateful for me to have shared my story with her because it lifted her spirits and helped her realize that things will be okay in the end.

What I have learned over the last few months is that God is preparing us all in some way, for bigger things.  I saw Joyce's sermon on Sunday and she talked about how God puts obstacles in our way to face, deal with and move on.  She states that makes us stronger people and if we elect not to deal with things he puts more difficult situations in front of us until we listen, face it, deal with it and then move on.

I see it as Life hitting me in the face and saying SNAP OUT OF IT! In recent months I think I've snapped out of it and have my feet grounded and know what I want to do.  I just have to do the things necessary to get there!

What was your Snap out of it moment?
