When Did You Become Someone Else??

There are times when we’re young that we are also confident. Someone will ask, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” And we can give a quick answer. But as we grow, things are not so clear as when we were children. Life gets complicated because we have more and more responsibility–for our own lives, and the lives of those in our care.

We may feel lost. We may not be sure where we’re going anymore. We may not even have a direction in mind. We look around and think we see everyone else in a situation we’d like to be in, too; but we’re just not there–and don’t know if we’ll ever be.

We can feel pretty depressed in times like these. We can feel very alone and unimportant.

Then something happens.

No, we don’t win the lottery.

The something that happens may not seem profitable at the time. It may not be fun. It may be an event that shatters us physically or emotionally–a disease, a betrayal, the loss of a job, or the death of someone we love. Of course, we don’t want to suffer through it. We pray that God will take it all away, knowing in our hearts that He may have something else in mind. Then, as He always will, God gives us the strength to go on. Time passes and we are able to contemplate what has happened to us with a steadier mind and even find that some good has come out of our awful event. We may see ourselves changed in ways we needed to change. We may even have become a better person, the person God always meant us to be.
