God's Plans

You know those exciting changes I thought that might be coming for me and my family - well, things fell thru today and it just didn't work out. 

I have been praying for several months for a door of opportunity to open for me...and I thought this was it. But guess what? God's plans are different than my plans. And thank goodness HE is in charge:) Although I had to spend a couple of hours moping around about it, I've decided that is enough. How can I pray for him to show me clearly which way I should go, and then grumble when he closes one door. My dear friend Tanya shared a quote from Joyce Meyer's tonight on Facebook and I thought - there it is. My feelings in one simple sentence:

God, I don't want anything to do with it if 

you're not in it.

If my Savior didn't orchestrate it - then it wasn't right. It wasn't the

perfect opportunity that I thought it was because He has a plan for 

me. And it's so much bigger then the immediate future that I can see. 

So tomorrow I will wake to a new day...I will find the sun as it rises in the morning. I will love on my babies and continue to try and find opportunities that will be what is best for my family. They are worth it - and my God has everything under control.

I will be praying for those changes in your heart whatever they may be! Love your attitude! When the times comes this will make it even more worthwhile.

Love you so much Abbie!!
Keep your faith in God's Plan for you and your family.
Someday when you look back, you will see reasons that He had and you will see His plans for good.
