A Vision Beyond my Circumstances

 stormtrooper and sons

To a large extant it has been the ability to have a vision beyond my circumstances that has allowed me to live as well as I have these past several years.  It has allowed me to do things I swore that I could never do.  It has allowed me to be someone, I didn’t think that I’d ever get to be.

But I did, and I am.

It has allowed me to survive the ending of a marriage.  It has allowed me to grow as a father to my sons.  It has allowed me to share my experience with others, It has allowed me to do a lot of things I never was able to do before; not spending money I don’t have, gardening, landscaping, working out, and writing, being but a few of them.

But something happened this weekend, something got let go.

And for the first time, in a very real way, I feel like I’m there now.  Not at the end, but the path I was meant to be on.  Not to say that everything is easy, or that I still don’t have an awful lot to learn, or that life itself won’t happen, but that I know now without a doubt that I have everything I need, and that the vision that I had is now.

It certainly makes it easier to be where your feet are.

It seems to be where the grace of a loving God always takes me.

    Did we have the exact same weekend? 🙂 I know our paths are very different but there is a beautiful truth in the grace that God extends to all of us. Not sure why it has taken me 8 years to accept this grace. But as you say it is a lot, “easier to be where your feet are.”
