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.
