Changes Are Coming

I get those “God wants you to know” messages on my Facebook page daily.  Today’s message was very revealing and telling. 

On this day of your life, we believe God wants you to know … that the only opinion of you that is important is God’s. 

Focus on living your life, and let the opinions of others be what they are.

I have recently gotten some really good news – news that I spent days crying about.  See, I cry when I am really happy and this news has made me really happy. I am not ready to share it because there are a lot of people in my personal life that may not approve my plans. All I know is that I am doing what I think is best for my family and I have been stressed out about reactions from certain people in my life. 

As a result of this upcoming change in my life, I have struggled with the opinions of others and seeing this message made me realize that I am making the right choice.  Yes, others may not necessarily agree with my decision but in the grand scheme of things, I am making the right decision especially in the eyes of the Almighty. After all, it is His opinion that really counts and no one else’s. 

I will focus on living and enjoying my life and let the opinions of others be what they are. Otherwise, my RA and fibro symptoms are somewhat calm and I am hoping that all the stress in the upcoming weeks (as I plan for this upcoming change) won’t be too detrimental to my health.  After all, all the planning and working towards this change will be worth it when all is said and done.

I will still be here blogging but if you notice that I am away for a while, please know that I have some great things happening right now.  I will update you as soon as I can.

  1. Contratulations on making what appears to be a major decision. Yes, you can only really be bound by what you think is best and, as you say, the Almighty’s opinion. Can’t wait until you can share more information. Until then, hugs and best wishes.

  2. Good luck! I felt the same way when we decided to have our second daughter. Despite anyone’s opinions, it was the best decision we could have made. Good luck!

  3. So happy to hear that great things are happening and your symptoms are calm! Lana, you deserve to be showered with great things! You make such a powerful point too–that it is ultimately Our Creator that we are pleasing. A great reminder. Sending you a giant hug!

  4. Follow your heart! People will come around once they see you are happy. If they don’t well maybe they are not happy in their lives. I have lived a life where I follow my heart and those closest to me have not always agreed right away but they are still here in my life. Just keep us informed! I am on the edge of my seat with curiosity!

    1. Hi Adrienne,
      Following my heart is exactly what I intend to you. I always say that sometimes family can be a person’s worst enemy. They always think they know what is best for us without realizing that by interferring they can ruin our happiness. I will say this, it is a big decision and it has to do with my past, as well as my present and future. Thanks for coming by and reading and commenting.

  5. Isn’t it great to feel blessed and at peace with major decisions? I am kind of going through the same thing and though I’m super nervous, I know I’m on the right track. Great job, girl!!

  6. Whatever this decision is, Lana, that it makes you happy and assures future happiness for you and your children is all that matters. I’m looking forward to the details, but in the meantime, I’m sending you my best wishes. It’s such good news that the RA and fibro are relatively quiet these days. It’s always nice to feel good. Until next time… 😉

    1. Thanks Wren. I am not thrilled with the cooler weather and what it means for my RA and fibro. In the meantime, I will just take it one day at a time.
