One of the worst feelings in the world (yes, up there with feeling like you’re going to vomit, vomiting and being stuck): Is having an itch and not being able to scratch it…
It is absolutely frustrating
But thank God for…well God – Yes, thank God for God.
I’ve been home with my family for just about a month now…and I had only intended on staying here for two weeks
That was MY plan
..but apparently God’s plan has been different
My car broke down leaving any routes leading out of S. FLorida closed to me
I have an itch to travel
An itch to return to the city of my school
Back to a new apartment where I need to unpack
I have an itch to get a job asap
I have an itch to serve at the church where my edification comes from
I find myself
All these itches with no way of scratching them.
Don’t get me wrong I love love love my family and I’m enjoying most every minute with them lol
I’m reminded daily that this is not what I had planned
And I’m often tempted to get anxious
And to feel like I’m falling behind
But Thank God for God
Who reminds me that He’s got me – no need to worry no need to fret
This is all part of His plan
He’s working behind the scenes and blessing me even in the holding period
We often get thrown off by a change in our plans
But there’s always a blessing to be found in a shift
Though we often miss it because we’re too busy
Trying to regain our sense of balance
…For me the blessing is in this time I get to spend with my family
It’s also in knowing that this is a lesson and test in patience
One I need to pass to get to the next level in God
It’s not easy
But it is do-able.
It’s also a time for me to bask in the comfort of knowing that
God’s thoughts are not my thoughts
His ways are not my ways
But His thoughts and ways
Than my thoughts and ways
His plan is definitely the better one
Life’s a journey – one that I don’t have to face alone.
So each day…
I take it step by step – knowing He holds my hand as He guides
I’m working on trusting Him enough to walk it with my eyes
Closed and my Faith exposed.
Much grace & peace to you friends!
