Sometimes I look at the world around me and what do I see? There are people and times that change with the seasons.
Each day is different yet it’s still the same. I’m doing the same thing, I’m believing in better tomorrows, and I’m keeping my faith alive. Yet things are different. I’m not the same person I was last year. I don’t feel the same I did last year, last month or even last week. The clock keeps ticking. Time continues to move forward.
In reflection, I see my life as a rollercoaster. The ups and downs that occur during a person’s life evolve into the person they are meant to become. On this fantastic journey, I’ve encountered a few bumps on the road and some rough patches.
Yet, I am different somehow. Perhaps it’s the time capsule that doesn’t want to be opened. The glimpse of my past losses that beckon me to reflect. There are days I look at those experiences and I become empty once again. Those days and weeks can turn into months if I let them. I cannot travel backwards.
Moving on, moving forwards is all there is.
It’s always been about the journey. Some days I just need to be reminded. The past is the past and the future is straight ahead. People change like the seasons. Coming in and out of your life with each passing day.
Who you are today transfers into who you will become tomorrow. Everything you learn now becomes a history lesson in life. I’ve learned to take it as it comes but I need to be more than a participant. I need to take a step of faith and give it all to God.
For He promised that the good works He started in me are not yet finished.
