Pass The Test

Some challenges are tests. If we remain calm, keep our peace, and walk by faith, we’ll pass with flying colors! (smile)

Thursday was a test day for me (smile) I made a decision about someone in my life and found out that God had other plans. (shock face) Needless to say, I was not prepared for the sincerity I heard in their voice which completely cause my thoughts to go blank for my comeback remark. My spirit was quickened, my tongue bridled so I just let it go.

I walked out of my house to be hit by the brutal cold and the slippery walk way because I did not shovel the snow off my patio. (Ugh)

I make it to my car and while it’s warming up decided to look for my work ID. Could not find it! (Panic time) So I go back into my house, snow all over my boots, (ugh) to look for my ID. No where could I find it! With no ID, you can’t drive onto the facility. So I called to get a ride with someone. By this time, I am feeling a bit numb but still peaceful. The person was coming to get me in fifteen minutes. Somehow in a matter of that time, I locked my keys in my car! (OMG) I think, are you kidding me!

By this time, my thoughts go through a series of coulda, woulda, shoulda. If you shoveled like you were supposed to…if you didn’t make that call… I felt my silly thoughts were trying to push any button. I thought I had road service assistance with my insurance.

I found out that I didn’t and for $75.00 they would send someone to get my keys. (shock face) It’s while waiting that it hits me, I am being tested! I smile because by the grace of God, I passed so far. (smile) I am not being prideful friends just praising God for the growing of spiritual fruit and the renewal of my mind to keep moving forward by not stopping and dwelling on the why is this happening.

See thoughts will come, it’s our choices that dictate the things that follows. Suffice it to say, I was tested all day. I kept choosing to breath and have faith that God was in control and He was! At the end of the day, I was exhausted with a victory by His grace! (smile)

I am also praying whether to continue blogging! It’s a bit overwhelming most days. Until I learn to balance, some days, there may not be any postings. Please bear with me as I figure this out! Be blessed my friends and enjoy your day!
