It’s Saturday morning already!
My husband is preparing a tasty omelet in the kitchen,
My sister is on her way back to Venezuela,
My second oldest boy is trying to settle down in his morning routine,
I’ve got urgency to get ready for a brunch in less than an hour!
Living in the moment is strenuous when faced with life extinguishers, doubt and fear.
It starts with a benign question, ‘what if…?’
By the end of the thought, I have colorful, vivid images of a catastrophe.
It’s truly exhausting!
Strongholds can be debilitating without a doubt.
As I wrestled with life altering decisions, I finally grasped a reality.
There are no warranties in life.
In my most recent decision, I just wanted someone to reassure me about the future.
I wanted everyone to say, ‘it’s going to be alright…You won’t fail’
I even wished for a descriptive manual with clear instructions in ‘how to’ succeed at the task.
No one can foretell the future much less can tell you if the decision you are about to make is the most favorable one.
When I kneel before Him in humility and most importantly with a surrendered heart, He always leads the way.
As soon as I surrendered this morning, He reminded me of one of his truths.
Just know, the Lord’s plans will always prevail.
“Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.”
Proverbs 19:21 NIV
How peaceful does that sound?
It was comforting and reassuring!
Now, I’m ready for brunch.
