Two Steps Forward, One Step Back


God weaves a theme in our hearts. It started in 2010, when I was getting ready to leave my job at State Farm of three years. I was looking for more and completely unsure of what I wanted.

I love to travel and what a perfect way to see the world, as a flight attendant. I have a friend who worked for a company that was hiring and I decided to give it a chance. I prayed that God would give me the opportunity to do the job and I would do whatever He asked me to do. I would fully live out obedience in accordance to His will. I had no idea what I was asking for at the time. In His faithfulness, I got the job.

I talk about seasons of life a lot. God laid plans on my heart and I anxiously await the fulfillment. I find myself flustered when something great happens that aligns with his promise and then either something gets in the way or the next part doesn’t happen ‘fast’ enough.

We are so busy looking forwarded to the next season, that we are missing the one we are in. Stop waiting for the next one and starting waiting for the blessing in your current one. God has me in this season because He is wanting to build character trait that can’t be revealed any other way. WHOA talk about a slap in the face and some hard reality.

It feels like two steps forward, one step back during these moments. I don’t share my testimony a lot, but it deserves a book giving God all the glory! Right now, I’m going to keep my eyes open…in this season.
