“I still remember when I prayed for the things I have now.”
I’ve come across this quote a few times over the last couple of weeks, and every time it speaks to me. My life right now, is not anywhere near where I would like for it to be. There are so many things for us that are in this strange waiting period, and so many unknowns. We are not positive where we are going to living 2, 4, or 6 months from now. As a woman – that is SO HARD! And so many other unknowns that it is stressful – I’m not going to sugarcoat it. I would love to say that I’m the perfect Christian and just take peace each day knowing God is in control, so it is all going to work out. Even though, at my heart of hearts, I do know this…I can’t say that my emotions follow that every day. This season has been trying and stressful for sure, but I do have so many things right now that I prayed for and questioned God whether they would ever happen.
Gosh, I remember being in my mid-twenties and feeling like there was not a single good guy left on this Earth and there DEFINITELY was not a man still alive that I was supposed to spend the rest of my life with….and then I met Ben. Ladies, if you’ve lost hope – I have been there! TRUST ME! haha. I felt like God was too busy taking care of everyone else to care whether I ever found my husband or not. And to be honest I have those same feelings from time-to-time now… NOT about my husband of course. LOL. He is my greatest miracle.
It’s easy to feel like He doesn’t hear you, or that He is too busy taking care of everyone else to care about your measly little issues. But it is important (and I’m talking to myself) to look back and remember the times where you’ve felt like that before, but you can see His hand in everything.
Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
