On my mind

 "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths."
Proverbs 3:5

I have been hurting lately for a few blogosphere friends of mine who have wishes that haven't been fulfilled and whose hearts are longing to understand why things have or haven't happended the way they "should have".  It's so hard to understand why life works the way it does.  It's also even harder to go through day to day life without having answers for the future.  I have seen the above verse in a few different places over the past few weeks (in very unexpected places- a bathroom??), and I am hoping that one of you lovelies reads the above and finds some comfort in it.  While it is hard not to have all the answers and to want something so so so terribly that isn't occuring RIGHT NOW, our future has already been shaped and molded by the One who knows exactly what we need and how we need to get there.  There are a few of you out there that I am holding especially close to my heart and praying for regularly- and, trust me, I will be rejoicing like crazy when your prayers (and therefore mine) are perfectly answered!!

  1. That is my absolute favorite verse! I found it when I had received some bad news, and it gave me such a sense of calm and reassurance. I hope it helps your friends too!

  2. That quote does give my some comfort. I was actually talking to my friends about God's plan while driving to DC this weekend. It is hard, but we just have to let go and trust Him!
