It’s strange how we can think we know where we are headed or what we are supposed to do and then BAM! it changes. This is where I am forever thankful for the scripture, “my steps are ordered by The Lord.” (Psalm 37:23). My life recently has felt like a world wind. I’m generally someone who welcomes changes; however, the recent ones and in the manner in which they came, were a little overwhelming.
But when you constantly push against something, eventually you get tired. At some point, you have to surrender to what God is trying to do. If you don’t – really – you only hurt yourself. Whatever the situation or thing He is wanting you to do is going to prepare you for something. Who knows, maybe it’s even the place where a door will open to all your dreams coming true. And to think, you wanted to push away! While I can’t say I am 100% happy with where I am right now, I can tell you I trust God 100%. So if this is where He has me in life then this is where I stay for now. In my past experience God has never placed me somewhere that wasn’t good for me. Sure, there are times when I don’t understand it. There are times when I can’t possibly see what good is going to come from me doing something or going somewhere or being around certain people… but there is always a reason in the end. Maybe it’s a lesson I had to learn to strengthen me for what is to come, maybe it was to help make a difference in someone else’s life, or maybe it was just to see if I could honor Him with the best attitude possible.
Whatever the reason, I trust Him.
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to Him and He will make all your paths straight.” – Proverbs 3: 5-6
