Looking Forward…


In the last week I have been so grateful that some people are only in our lives for a short time…I am shocked to be in this place because I am the kind of person who has a hard time letting people go. I am overly forgiving and I make allowances for people who I probably shouldn’t but many things and people have been helping to perpetuate me being able to not only exercise my NO muscles, but encouraging me in boldness and letting me know I am making productive decisions. I really think that everyone comes into our lives for a reason…to enhance, bring laughter, love and be helpers to you in life and vice a versa. And, then some people come into our lives to show us what we truly do not want. These are the kinds of people who granted leave and indelible mark on our lives but in the way that shows you how to avoid their type of person again.

For this I am grateful, I am grateful that when I am looking forward I can see people and their intentions more clearly. I am grateful that the broken road has a purpose and that when it is patched up it may not look so great but it is purpose is so much greater and when you do take the opportunity to look back all the potholes, crumbled patches and scars of the patchwork it shows you your strength and how far you have come. The road ahead is ripe with fresh opportunity to do it different and better and to reminds me that I can keep looking forward and enjoy what comes next.

I love and appreciate that God has granted me this perspective and is opening my heart to truth but also that I am not dwelling in bitterness and anger, I am beginning to have a grateful spirit for the trials I have faced. ❤

Revelation 21:4 He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’[a] or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.




About jennessjohnston78

Hello World my name is Jenness I have been blogging for a couple of years I have used my Embracing blog to help me carry my burdens and to discuss issues that are sometimes very heavy...I am a passionate and very opinionated person I appreciate the outlet that blogging affords me...I am a single mom and have many struggles that I battle in my life but I feel a call on my life to share my blessings and struggles. I pray that the words that I write make there way to people who can be touched by them and that someway, somehow God can use them to have a positive impact. I love writing and though I am not great at it I started the Journal Of The Everyday in an effort to hone my skills and learn new things about myself through writing...I have a pie in the sky idea of someday writing a book...A lofty goal I know...so thank you everyone who joins me on my journey by reading my blogs...I welcome comments and feedback. Here is to embracing the possibilities of everyday life. :)
