I think sometimes life is like a mission. We are going through life trying to find out what our mission is and how to complete it. Sometimes our mission is easy, other times we have to go through changes and break the hidden code to complete it.

I’ve had a variety of feelings along my journey. Happiness, sadness, pain, hurt and many others. I will never forget the feeling of heartache. The kind when you lose someone you loved so much, that it felt like part of your heart was completely gone. The pain was so much, you thought you were dying.

I remember feeling this way after losing my son a little over two years ago. There were times I questioned God. Why did this this happen? Others would say, “How could God do this?” Well, I remember from the night of the accident that God told me he had a plan. No, I do not understand his plan. I believe we are on a life mission, we have choices, there is happiness, and there is loss and pain. Our goal is to figure out what our mission is. God is molding us through these events and wants us to tell everyone how he can help them. God’s plan is never to hurt or harm, but to teach us how to react to events he places in our path.

With God our Mission is Possible.

When I hear people say I have been dealt a bad hand, I never have luck or I can’t do anything, I think that is really too bad. We can always stop that pattern and start new each day. Just because things don’t work out the way we think they should. We can either learn and grow by following our life mission or change paths and go down the road of darkness.

I know some people don’t agree with me that things happen for reasons. They also have a hard time understanding how I can look for the good in every situation. It’s a choice I choose to make because if I don’t the other choice is to be an unhappy person and sink into a deep dark life of sadness, which I know my son would never want me do. I know there are going to be hard times on my mission, but with God I can get through those hard times. I also know some people are going to think I’m crazy, but I strongly believe if we make a positive choice to change our self, ask God to help, then the rest of our struggles will get easier with time.

God did not promise us that our life would be easy, but he did promise he would walk beside us. God is grooming us to be more like him. Sometimes bad things happen to make us stronger and grow in our faith. Reach for God’s word. It’s amazing what you will find. I believe that is how we break the code.

For me, my eyes have been opened and I’m ready to receive my Life Mission. Are you ready to receive your Mission? Just remember it may seem IMPOSSIBLE but with God it is POSSIBLE!

Missy Hillmer

My name is Missy Hillmer. I’m married, live in a small town named Palmer, NE and have 3 children. Jake is our oldest who is 19 years old and Gracie is 11 who lives here with us. Tyler which was 15 years on August 20, 2013 is now in Heaven. He was killed in a car accident just 3 short days after his 15th birthday. I am very honest, very real sometimes to the point of not being fun, I guess that’s because I’m a black and white kind of girl. I like to look at the positive in every situation. I really believe there are two ways to look at things. Look for the bad or the good. The “bad” does me no justice and can spiral out of control in a heartbeat. The “good” however gives me hope and it connects with my belief that God is with me through everything. I believe my faith has gotten me through life and especially since my son’s accident. I pray a lot more, watch for the signs that God gives me, listen to my inner gut feeling, as my husband calls it and really focus on living a simple life. Family means everything to me, I love to laugh and think it’s the best medicine for any problem. Music soothes my sole and being outside in the sun brings me great joy! I have learned that many times you cannot control the storm in your life but, you can learn to dance in the rain. I really mean it when I say DANCE in the RAIN! The summer before Tyler’s accident, Tyler, Gracie & I danced in the rain. This memory I will never forget! Since Tyler’s accident I am passionate about telling my story with the hope that it will help or inspire at least one person.
