Change, The Known, and the Unknown

I get to move again. I have moved so many times it is no longer an adventure, it has become as routine for me as doing dished, laundry, mowing lawns, washing cars, etc. Here's what I've learned.  When I step into the unknown, it is not unknown to God.  He knows the where, who, why and how.  Every place I've lived there have been people for me to help and who have helped me.  One move the people I met taught me a lot about how to rely on God and myself because there was no support from them.  I am so grateful for that experience, I'm so grateful that God had enough trust in me to send me to a place I could learn what I needed to to get closer to Him.  Other places I've learned how to let others serve me, how to let God help me through them.  I remember one move where I was able to help another person with personal challenges that I had the info she needed to use as a springboard to her own breakthroughs because of my own personal experiences with similar issues.  I am so grateful to know that no matter what I experience in my new place, with new people, and new ideas it is the right thing for me.  I'm grateful that it is easy for me to learn my lessons as I turn to God for the wisdom, power and will to carry out my purpose in whatever place I go.  I am so grateful for the love and support I find as I travel through this life.  I am so grateful for the love I get to feel and the happiness that comes to me.  I am so grateful that my needs are always met and the times and ways are the ways that are best for me, and show me the ways I can grow. I may not always recognize that instantly, but  that's ok. I can look back at all my life and see the goodness and wisdom in the path, and know that it has been divinely guided, it is just too beautifully orchestrated to be otherwise.  I'm thankful today for the joy and peace that surpasses the heartache and grief of the past.  The memories and heartaches that used to bring pain and shame have become the sweetest treasures, the catalyst to the joy and peace that I feel today. How great is my God, and how great am I in his love.
