Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a blessed Easter Sunday yesterday; we spent our morning at church followed by brunch at The Pancake House followed by a nap while watching Lethal Weapon 4 (the best) and then grilled veggies on the grill. It was a perfect day of celebration 🙂
The Waiting Time is hard, you guys. Like seriously hard. Sometimes painful. Often times frustrating, even scary. It’s an incredibly hard place to be in, to walk, and sometimes it feels easier to just continue walking the path we’ve planned out in our own minds, all the while excluding Him because yeah- sometimes it does feel like we know what’s best. (And um, we would be wrong about that, mkay?) Jesus loves us so much more than we love ourselves (and truly, thank goodness He does because I have some pretty ugly moments) and because He loves us more, walking the path with Him is so much better than attempting to walk it on our own. It doesn’t always mean The Waiting Time will get easier, but I believe once we continue to make Him a part of that time, not only will He bring us hope, but He will bless us with so many gifts along the way.
Have you asked God what plans He has for you? Do you believe with your heart that those plans are in fact gifts? Are you ready for Him to show you? If you are, I want you to close your eyes right now and simply say, “Okay, Lord. Show me and help me to continue to walk with you.” He hears you, and I promise you (I promise!) He will take you by the hand and lead you.
