Perfect Timing.

When you hear the phrase... "Everything happens for a reason", most of us take it with a grain of salt and don't think another thing about it.
I know I do.

But, really wrap your brain around that...

Everything that is happening in your life is happening for *some* reason.

Good or bad. Perfect or imperfect. Happy or sad.

It's HAPPENING. Whether we like it or not. It is happening.

(terrible) Examples:

Today, I wore some flip-flops that I don't usually wear and while I was walking in the rain, I stepped in a huge puddle of water. If I would have been wearing my $50 Rainbow flip-flops, I would have been upset. But for some reason I decided not to wear them. They were right there next to the door. But, instead I put something else on. I didn't have any reason to wear different flip-flops. I just did.

I am really learning to love MUW. At first, I was definitely skeptical about being in Columbus, alone with no family or best friend, but God knew exactly what he was doing when He put me here. It feels....right. I feel like this is where I'm supposed to be in this phase of my life.

I have had some pretty amazing people come into my life recently. They have helped me, encouraged me, made me happy when I was having a rough go of it, made me smile after a long day, and have been listening ears when I needed to vent. I am oh-so thankful for these people.

These, I know, are ridiculous but it's the best I could think of.

I've just come to the revelation of what ever burden or happy thing that is going on in life, it is happening to me for some reason. I can learn some "life-lesson" from it and can/will become a better person from it.

This was on my heart tonight.
