So just in time to test my skills at “really living and trusting God” all my planning for this weekend got changed due to my husbands being sick. I did pretty good for the first couple of days. Better attitude for serving him. Yeah, a minor victory. However, the past 36 hours I haven’t been so faithful with the good attitude, trusting and watching for God thing. Then I was reminded through my devotional book (who knew there was a devotional book written just for me?) That the Lord knows what we need to draw nearer to Him. We should go through each day LOOKING FOR what He has prepared for us. To quote the devotional “Accept every event as God’s “hand-tailored provision” for my needs. What? Accept that all my planning was for nothing?
Well, that’s not exactly true. My planning just had to be adjusted and even more so my heart and attitude had to be adjusted. I’m reminded that God, Immanuel, is with me. This is not a surprise to Him. He has a plan and I just need to watch for it and join in. Okay, now I’m getting a little excited to see what He has in store for my “adjusted” plans for our anniversary celebration. Thanks God. I’m glad you are with me, even when I act like a spoiled brat and have a fit. I’m over it and I’m waiting and watching!
Have you ever felt like that? You just think you are really “on to something” and then that something changes? Hang in there. God is a very patient teacher. He, is Immanuel. He is with us. Matthew 1:23
