A day after writing my other blog post about "dreams," another dream bit the dust. Dear friends, my heart hurt. This week hasn't been an easy one in any way. I've felt rather lonely, out of sorts and brooding. I've felt a bit out of place. And I've seriously been praying about what the future may hold, especially in a few specific areas. Sometimes it's hard to understand, when we can't see the big pictures. We have our own plans, and then, time and again, God chooses to change them. Why, it's often hard for us to understand.
Today my heart cried, asking God why this plan wasn't a right one. Why I would have to hurt for today.
And once again, my Jesus wrapped me in His arms and said, "My ways are not your ways. Do you trust me?"
"Yes Lord," I replied, "today and everyday."
And so I trudged on. I did several loads of laundry, worked on the dishes, took my little girl to the park and later to the pool. Made dinner for my family. Did everything that had to be done for today, and let my Jesus take care of the details, however hard that may be.
I have to trust, even if it's only a step at a time.
My God truly has never failed me. I don't believe He will now. He is the one in control.
