Necessary Loss for Self Renewal

I am at a loss for words for how quickly one can lose so much. Most often when life is going so well and one finally discovers true contentment, that is precisely when life gets a little crazy. I've been through this "Job experience" when I simultaneously loss my boyfriend and job. There is a natural compulsion to enter panic mode and rely on my own strength to "fix" everything. And I did exactly that three years ago. A little bit wiser now, I have a completely different outlook. Somehow this is an opportunity for growth and new beginnings. I am scared and at my wit's end, but there still remains a comforting peace that amid my chaos, God is in control. And all I need to do is trust him.
