I know I don’t talk about it often and I know that sometimes it’s tough to realize, but it truly is amazing to see the way God works in each of our lives. Just today a dear friend called me – the second call that we had taken in a week – and I was truly in awe of all that God had done since our last talk. In just a few short days, He had taken a situation that seemed bleak and stressful and transformed it into the opportunity of a lifetime. And the coolest part of it all? I had the opportunity to watch it unfold right before my eyes – a true testament to the fact that God is continuously working not only for His will but also in our favor.
I think that’s a realization we can so easily forget – the fact that God knows our hearts and knows what’s best for us. Even though our deepest desires may not unfold in the time or manner that we had hoped, doesn’t mean that He’s not moving them into place at just the right time. When you take a moment to step back and really think about it, it’s almost silly how simple it can be. God’s plan is perfect. It’s us (and our fears and doubts and impatience tendencies) that make everything difficult. If we take the time to truly let our dreams run wild, to give them up to God in confidence of knowing that He’s going to do something truly special with them, I think we’d all be surprised at just how easily everything falls into place. Just giving you a little something to remember the next time you get discouraged by the path that life has put you on. xx, t.
