It seems that we are all one event for a different point of view, one event from being free of a misconception or burdens by a new problem. I remember the day that I lost a job that I had, I was free. The amount of stress that I had for the months before hand was excruciating. Even though my life was not going to be any easier that one event produced a new perspective that shaped my life even to this day.
When I was in the midst of the reality that I was living before that event there seemed to be no end and no hope of a good conclusion to the matter. I remember days that I did not think of anything but the consequences of being fired and not having a job. I cannot tell you how much better I slept after I had actually lost my job.
Fast forward a couple of months when all I could think about was how I was going to get employed again. Our savings was running out and finding an income was all I could think about with my waking hours (which was all of them because I was not sleeping). Then when I finally found a job I cannot tell you how much better I slept that night. One Event.
Why is my faith so events based? One event changed my perspective, and you would think that after a few of these isolated instances that I would be able to put my faith in a more consistent place than in that one event.
