In the past year since posting anything to this blog, life has shifted taking my journey down a new trail.
The past year’s adventure has brought great joy and deep sorrow, laughter and tears, excitement and confusion.
Through it all God has been there every step of the way.
He has instilled in me reassurance through Joseph’s journey that it would have been real easy for Joseph to be pissed off because of his brothers’ efforts to kill him. Even due the fact that they decided to sell him off into slavery, Joseph decided to trust His God and lean in to God’s plans instead of his own. (Genesis 37) In the end God used Joseph to reveal His glory.
I have wandered and wondered if maybe I have been trying to force my plans instead of patiently waiting on Him. Because of that, He has placed in me trust in Him knowing that our God and Savior has this covered. His plans are always greater than our dreams.
Now; on what I am praying is the light at the end of this dark tunnel, God is working on getting me to an understanding that He is working.
Rather than me crying, “But Lord, its quarter to 11.” He is telling me to praise Him in the hallway until He blows open the next door.
So, I guess what I’m sharing here is that it is really easy to jump to a position of doubt in ourselves instead of remembering that He wants to use each and every one of us for His glory.
In the end He doesn’t need us, but He wants us.
Please remember that when this world gets tough. He wants us to rely on Him. To trust Him.
God our Father created YOU for His purpose and His purpose is to love us forever.
