Sorry it has been so long since I have posted anything. The last couple of weeks have been crazy, which you can read some about in a previous post of Crashing Down. On top of that I moved and have been unpacking like crazy (and purging because I have way too much stuff), fighting the plague (yesterday I was in bed all day except two hours, which is very unlike me, hence today I am up, showered, dressed and out and about, but totally not feeling 100% – that’s what DayQuil is for, right?!), and dealing with more family issues. What have I learned?
I do today and that’s it.
I trust God – He knows what He is doing.
I hurt when I need to hurt, but I do not dwell there.
I cannot let other people (even my family) dictate how I am doing because I cannot change any of them.
I can only love them and pray for grace to do that and trust the Lord to work.
I am learning how to rejoice in all circumstances – when there are extreme hurts, it makes the joys more exciting – which is fun. And though nothing over the top has happened to cause extreme joy, I have still been in a rather great mood and feeling rather hopeful. God hears prayers, and that is keeping me praying and praising Him for His faithfulness to me.
I have amazing friends who love me dearly and I am very thankful to God for them. They are my family and I would not trade them for anything. It is crazy to think I was going to be in CA right now, and I just do not know how I would walk through any of this without them – and if that would have been what happened God’s grace would have been sufficient to do it, but I am glad I am not without them. They remind me I am not alone – they remind me of truth when I am struggling to do it on my own. They do not point me to themselves, but to Christ – so thankful for that.
These are just a few of the things I have learned in the last couple weeks. I am sure there will be more thoughts to come that I am learning. I like learning. And I like sharing what I am learning. So thanks for listening…now go do today and only today…
