Resting in GOD's plan!
Ever feel "stuck" in your life?? Ever wonder "why" God has you where you are? Ever wish you could hit a rewind or fast forward button to get out of your current situation? If so, we can relate to each other.
I have struggled in my life living the "if only" or "when x happens". I haven't always rested in peace knowing that God's plan is supreme! There have been times in my life that all God seems to be doing is closing doors..... I didn't want to see the doors he was opening. I tend to want "my plan" to be the focus.... learning to wait and trust God has been a lifelong lesson for me to learn.
I can be an impatient person! (especially with diapers.... I was sooooo ready for each of my 4 to potty train.)
God has been teaching me (for YEARS... you would think someone that graduated college with honors could catch on a little faster!) to rest in the moment! Don't try to worry about tomorrow or long for tomorrow and miss the TODAY! Today is important, today is a gift!!!!! I can never get TODAY back, I need to live focused and joyful in the TODAY! My today might not be perfect, but God can use me in whatever HE has for me today!
For a few years it seemed that all I did was nurse babies, change diapers and chase toddlers..... repeat, wash dishes, do laundry, nurse babies, change diapers and chase toddlers! I couldn't wait for those days to be over. I struggled with feeling alone, useless, unimportant, and was totally exhausted. Now my life is different.... not changing diapers any more (yeah), but I also don't have any babies to snuggle and nurse (miss that)... but if I'm not careful I can still find myself with the same old feelings. I guess that I was living a misconception when I kept thinking "when I'm not tied down with toddlers" or "when I'm not up to my eyeballs in diapers". Life is in the MOMENT, not in the "when".
I have been really rambling in this post......
I am going to ENJOY today! I am going to CHOOSE to appreciate all that God has put in my day because life is in the MOMENT!!!!!! Today is a gift God has given.....!!!
Have a blessed day,
Be a blessing!
One way to bless our families is with a healthy supper. Connecting around the table is important! With busy lives the "what is for supper?" question can bring stress, end this with www.simplefamilysupper.com
