Back To My Roots

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , on August 10, 2010 by Her Broken Wing

Longing…Desiring…Searching…to reconnect with my disconnected life. When did that happen? When did my life source die?

To brave another day, long past hope

Losing it all, from the world’s point of view (I thought); I really gained freedom and a walked through the doors of a new season. (1 Corinthians 15:31)  


                                   For life isn’t fair.  

                                  Some times things don’t turn out as planned or anticipated.  

                                   Some times life is a playground of learning…  

Do I choose to come back year after year? Do I hide from the elements?  

Who is to say I have failed?  

I have circled back in my career… I am now where I initially started some years ago. Through my career longevity, I have made it to the top to only step off the platform, by choice. I was never happy in those roles. I am a hands-on / patient-oriented person. So, I was thinking lately about my career choices and feeling a little unsettled. Then the other night someone (God anointed) said, “This (recovery period) will bring you back to your roots.” It was in that moment I realized I had finally been brought back to my roots. I am very happy with my career choice–now. Even though the rungs of my career ladder had been removed over the past year by my choices, I realized there was a tremendous purpose and a plan.(Jer 29:11) Today, I am happy where I am. I am back to my place of origin–where God intended.  

Oh, the winding roads we must take to find that we were home all along.  

Beautifully Awkward
