Faith

I have quiet confidence that God knows what is best for my life and that He has a plan and purpose for me.  I'm earnestly seeking to know, "What would YOU have me do?" There have been many times in my life when I had dreams and hopes that did not come to fruition and, at the time, was utterly and painfully depressed that God wasn't giving me what I wanted- what I pleaded and prayed for with all my heart.  But HE knows better.  No, HE knows best.  He sees what we cannot see.  It doesn't always numb the pain, but I also believe in feeling your feelings and allowing them.  Then, we can deal with it and heal it.  I'm taking comfort in Proverbs 19:21 today.  The NIV translation says, "Many are the plans in a person's heart; but it is the Lord's purpose that prevails."


Just like I believe there is a certain peace and comfort in having a man be the head of the household (a somewhat controversial topic I know), there is a big sense of relief knowing that I don't have to figure everything out on my own.  I can give situations to God and seek HIS will and then patiently (oh, that one is so hard) wait to hear from Him. Sometimes we "hear" by doors opening or closing or by certain people coming or leaving our paths.  But, I TRUST in Him and his purpose.  Thank God for that peace.

  1. This came at a perfect time for me. I always seem to ask god 'to wake up & hear me' but I know that He does & that's its all on His time, patience & trust.

  2. Loving this reminder this morning. I don't always know what is ahead, but I do know He has it all figured out for me! I also became a little vulnerable this week and posted what has been going on in my life if you want to check it out. xoxo http://www.eatsleepdecorate.blogspot.com/2013/10/a-big-announcement.html

  3. Agree. Sometimes we have to accept that his answer is no, sometimes it may even be wait. But,no matter what His answer is it is ALWAYS the right one.

  5. I agree completely with you. Sometimes it can be discouraging when our plans don't work out the way WE want. However, since He knows all, I can get comfort from know that it is His plan. On another note, I am grateful for the loving guidance my husband gives our family as the head of the household. He really helps to bless our home. I am his helpmeet in all things as we consult together.
