Had a tough lesson this week. A personal dream, which seemed like a definite gift from God, seemed to evaporate. I just don’t understand. It doesn’t make sense. It looked like His plan and felt like it was blessed by Him.
Another financial challenge came my way this week as well. It was looking as if I was not going to be able to take care of the people who depend on me. He gave me both of these situations at once? Really, God? What did I do?
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;”
The truth is, maybe I didn’t do anything wrong. The truth is that maybe my own faith is being tested. How are you at waiting for God’s promises? I need to work on that.
“Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.”
God promises in His word, but sometimes you and I wonder and get upset with God. I need to remember.
My heart was broken.
The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
God, forgive my selfishness and my craving to understand.
Your plan, God, not mine.
Thank you, God for Grace, Truth, Love, and Laughter,
(Reminder, this is just a journal of my mistakes, experiences, and thoughts along with my journey to having a closer relationship to God. I do not claim to be an authority on the subject. If you want to know The Way, read The Bible.)
What church do I attend? Verve Church in Las Vegas
P.S. Thank you, especially, for grace.
