Did I ever tell you about our trip to the Grand Canyon?
It is one of those places pictures cannot fully make you feel the size of it. I had read about it and saw picture of the Grand Canyon all my life, but it was nothing to seeing it. After flying most of the day and driving to the Grand Canyon we were all excited to see it. As I entered the park it just seemed like a normal park, lots of trees and seemed to be very flat. We got out of our car and walked over to the Grand Canyon and there it was bigger than anything I ever imagined. We walked around and even went out to a little area on the edge. I just could not believe how big, how deep, how wide this place was. I was truly amazed. I could explore that place for weeks, and someday I will.
As I looked at that bigger than life Canyon I knew my issues were very small compared to this and God made this amazing place. Wow then I thought about the last few months leading up to this trip. My project was over and I had been searching for a new job. I was very lucky when a group said they needed my services for a few weeks while I find something else. I worked on proposals and support the organization with management reports. I keep hunting for a new job and nothing was happening. Finally this group told me they can only carry me another week. Each Friday when I went to work I was not sure if that would be the last day. Each Friday they gave me another week.
The great news happened just before my planned trip. I got a new job and would start when I came back from my trip. I even meet with the customer the Thursday before leaving the next day. The customer was excited for me and said he can’t wait until I get back. Seeing the Grand Canyon was a side benefit, the real purpose of the trip was to attend my niece’s wedding.
See I focused on joy and love and not on fear or the issue around work. The Grand Canyon showed me all will be ok, my God will always provide a way to enjoy life. Don’t make your problems into a Canyon, make it small and open up to joy and love you will see them resolved.
Much joy and love to you and yours
