Lately, I've been so anxious about the future. I've seen so many posts about LDR (long distance relationships) and sometimes the facetime chats with my family and Chris just can't give me the satisfaction/comfort that I desire.
I tend to forget that it was God that provided me with this great job. God who has brought Chris through law school thus far. God that decided I would be lucky enough to have the best parents and siblings in the world. God who timed Chris and my relationship so perfectly.
It's so funny how quickly I lose sight of His plan for my life. Each day this week He has made sure the devotional in "Jesus Calling" would apply perfectly to my anxious heart. Even the sermon on Sunday was meant for me! "Being a disciple when God's plans are not your plans." Really God?! I hear ya!
"Let not your heart be troubled, His tender word I hear, And resting on His goodness, I lose my doubts and fears; Though by the path He leadeth, but one step I may see..."- Civilla Durfee Martin
I guess the whole point of this post is to remind myself--and hopefully some of you--that God has a perfect plan for our lives. It may not be our plan, and it may not be our timing, but it will be so much better than we can ever imagine.
Thank you, God, for blessing me with a wonderful family, loving boyfriend, and a job in this shaky economy. You will bring Chris and I back together at your perfect timing, that I believe. Although I can only see one step ahead of me, you will provide me with the desires of my heart.
If you're feeling anxious or overwhelmed with the troubles of this world, cry out to Him and let Him help carry that load.
"And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose."-Romans 8:28
