No pain No Gain...

I have not been here for a while. There has been a lot going on since the last time as I have to try to balance my life and keep up with the hustle & bustle of my everyday duties which are influenced a great deal by the constant physical pain from the fibromyalgia. 

I recently returned back to work. I feel that this was part of the plan for me. One day in July, I began to pray as well as write down the things I wanted and needed God to help me with. I needed direction as well as for him to go before me to help to work out the situations out for me. One of the things I needed the most attention was dealing with my financial situation.  For the most part, I had not really worked since my Surgery last year (sept. 2013). I really needed to know what to do in this situation. I prayed to God and decided to send my resume out resume out to a few places. Little did I know that the timing was so right.  It's so important to be in position to receive your blessing.  After turning in my resume, I received a phone call for me to come into the clinic for an interview.  When I arrived to the interview, God had already moved on my behalf and they were ready to offer me the job just a few minutes after we began the interview.  After talking with them and hearing about what the position was offering, I was ready to accept as this position was everything I had prayed for.  Due to all that I deal with in regards to my health there were some things of my past jobs that I just can not do anymore and  for this position they are not required and it works out for my good and therefore I was able to return back to practice as a therapist in a local outpatient clinic. ( I must add that in all my years of practice this is the best position that I have had and it works for me )

I am so thankful for this opportunity to be able to get back to work. There were many days that I didn't understand why things were going the way that they were going for me. I now realize that the struggles and the hard time was a part of the process to get me to this point, to this day.  Many times we do not understand God's plan and purpose. We experience lots of things during our lives that are a part of the process to get us to our purpose and destiny. Many things we go through are very difficult and require us to gain strength just to make it through the next day. But we have to keep in mind that God is always there with us and he will never leave you or forsake you.  It may even seem like you are in the situation all alone, but we have to stand on his word that he was there all the time...He is Alpha and Omega. 

Be strong and of good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them; for the Lord thy God, He it is who doth go with thee. He will not fail thee nor forsake thee.”
