Life is full of uncertainty!

Our Sunday school lesson this past Sunday was on trusting Jesus when you don't know the outcome and praising Him even when things don't turn out the way you think they should. That one kinda hits you in the gut!

Life is full of uncertain times. Situations change and people come and go. The one thing I have found for sure is that my God is ALWAYS there! He never leaves us and always has our best at heart. He only wants for us success and happiness. Now, does that success mean that we will all be owners of fortune 500 companies and make more money that we ever dreamed possible? No, but does that really measure success? I don't think so.

There are people in my life who are currently in the "holding circle," waiting to see what is going to happen next. As hard as I know it is, they must trust that God is in control. We talked yesterday about how you truly know if you are following God's plan or just going the way you want it to go. I have found that when I pray and ask for God's direction, if I follow His will, He provides a peace that cannot be measured. It is easier to sleep at night and I just feel at ease. When the thoughts of doubt cloud my mind, I feel like that is God telling me that I may need to take a second look at my approach. Maybe it is not the right time, maybe I should wait, maybe that is not His plan.

I felt led to share this because I think we all struggle with this from time to time and just maybe I needed a little "extra" dose of it today. One thing I know for sure, when I can't be certain of anything else, is God's love for me is amazing! He loves me so much and oh how He loves you too.

Until next time...
