Don’t you just love it when you’re trundling (yes, I’m using that word) along and everything seems to be headed where you thought and then a phone call later, it’s a whole different picture?
Yes, I’m being somewhat facetious here. I don’t love this scenario but I’m learning to be thankful in these times because it usually means God has brought me to a place of change. I don’t like change either but I know I need it.
So, here I am at this crossroads and the choices are not at all what I thought they would be. They are different than what I imagined my future to be. I’m mourning the lost of what I envisioned and am trying to embrace what God seems to have in store for me. It’s not clear yet so maybe that’s part of the problem for me.
I keep coming back to my verse for this year, Isaiah 26:3:
You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast because he trusts in You.
You will keep me in perfect peace, Lord, because my mind is steadfast and trust in You. I choose to trust your plan for my life above all else. Align my heart with that vision because anything else, though it may seem good, isn’t your best for me. And that’s all I want because I know in the long run, it’s better than anything I could have envisioned or imagined. You are faithful, Lord, and true. In your name, Jesus, I pray and wait. Amen.
