Living The Everyday Life
I don’t know about you, but we have had a months worth of Mondays all in one.
We started the day out with my daughter struggling to be an adult today.
Her computer crashed over the weekend, which to anyone who works from home or is an online college student knows this is a very bad thing to happen.
She has to have a new computer up and running before Wednesday when her next lesson is due.
This was very difficult on her because we learned no one wants to give a young adult any form of credit. This was extremely messy and stressful, but after jumping through several obstacles, we figured out how to get this to come together.
In the end our sweet family friend, who is stationed in Italy, gave her the best advice to find her computer as well as our family who helped her financially, were all able to pull together everything she needed to find her computer thus putting an end to this very stressful morning.
No matter how frustrated we were, God protected her, even though it was hard to see while we met rejection and denial after denial.
I tell this nightmare story to remind you that no matter what your plans are, God’s plans will always trump yours, but be encouraged, because no matter what His plans are, they will always be better than yours.
Just because you don’t understand why something is going wrong, do not fear, because God is not surprised.
It may not be easy to remember, but if you can, take a step back and trust in God to have your plan and your journey already figured out.
He will not leave you or forsake you now.
Be encouraged, those who may be worried about their jobs, paychecks, child care, education, health issues, and sickly family members, for God knows your concerns and fears. He is working out your plans now. He knows where your next paycheck as well as all of your concerns will come from.
Remember, He knows what you do not know yet.
Take the time to lean on Him during these times of uncertainty. He will give you the peace and comfort you need.
