Have You Switched Paths?



by Dawgelene "Dr Dawj" Sangster- With a new year well underway, many have set new goals, changed paths and are excited about doing something different. What is forgotten sometimes is that when new goals are set, paths are changed and something new is done, individuals are giving up the old thoughts, things and oftentimes people that were held dear to them, in order to move forward. It is so important to note that everyone won't  understand your new path, mission, purpose and overall direction God has sent you in, but then again, He didn't instruct them nor is He guiding them.


While the pain of losing those you thought had your back or supported you could be great, along with the potential fear you may have in stepping into the unknown, the joy of trusting God and seeing His purpose for your life come into view, will begin to heal the wounds of loss over time.

Remember to:

  1. Remain committed to your purpose

  2. Stay on the Path designated for YOU

  3. Cast all of your cares on God allowing Him to take on the everyday burdens so you don't have to

  4. Stop beating yourself up because of setbacks


The road isn't easy, but you have the right tools of faith, courage, peace, commitment, strength, prayer, hope, forgiveness and protection to guide you along the way.

A Ray of Hope on the GMC Denali Dream Drive


I took the above photo while traveling on the Denali Dream Drive to visit the HGTV Dream Home last December. During the trip, I was feeling some kind of way about going into my second holiday season as a widow. I needed some time and space to think. The trip opportunity came at the perfect time for me, from my friends over at General Motors (GM). I remember stepping outside of the HGTV dream home and looking over the beautiful land that surrounded us. I glanced at the tall and beautiful trees, homes, water and mountains; along with the beautiful GMC trucks made that moment so beautiful and memorable.

While standing there, I began to think about my life; my purpose and how the past 2 years had felt like I was in land unreal, yet I was enduring because God had given me hope, even in the midst of what I had gone through. At that moment, I looked up into the sky and in the midst of the trees, I saw the most beautiful spot of sunlight shining through. It was so bright that I could hardly look at it directly. Within that moment, God spoke to my heart and said, "I am your ray of hope'! It was a powerful moment of release and relief to experience and I will never forget it. What has been your "Ray of Hope" during challenging times? Let me know by sharing it here, and then share this blog with someone you know that may need a "Ray of Hope" to get them through the day.
