Lately, through a few hardships, I have learned that I was MADE to bring honor and glory to the Lord. I was created to share the gospel. Sadly, right now that doesn't include being a mother for me. It's hard realize that my plans are different than the Lord's. I thought I would get married, maybe 1-2 years later I would start having kids. I didn't think I would be married for 2.5 years with a tough road ahead on figuring out what/why/when it can happen. But you know what? I am honest when I say this, although it has taken some time to get here, I wouldn't trade it for the world. I have had 2.5 WONDERFUL years of marriage. These years have been so great because we are learning and growing together. We were able to buy our first house, join a new church, and have plenty of time with friends and family! I have even had time to start this blog, venture out on different business ideas, and try new hobbies!
I've worked at the same place for the last 3 years. It has been tough and frustrating at times, but I know it is stretching and growing me so much! I have been given the experience to work in the corporate world and to learn all about it. If I had become a mother quickly, then I wouldn't be in this valuable position. Even though my path has been different than my sisters, I am thankful. It has awoken the Entrepreneur in me that I didn't know existed. What a gift that almost slipped past me!!
So my reason for sharing all of this is because God has a plan for you. He has a perfect and wonderful plan that sometimes we don't know about. We worry and fret about why we aren't getting our way (which I DEFINITELY did and still DO!!), but we forget to Trust in the Lord with all our hearts. I can't tell you the amount of times that I worried and came out on the other side amazed that God gave us something better. I hope this can encourage us to trust and believe that the Lord knows what He's doing. He loves us so much and wants the best for us. If only we could just believe that everyday!
I know this verse is used a lot, but I truly believe it.
5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
6 in all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will make your paths straight.
