That Word Again: TRUST

I find myself continually reminding myself to trust that God has a plan for my life - and that where He has me right now is precisely where He wants me to be. I feel like I'm constantly asking for peace and guidance, and he is constantly telling me that He's got this. He IS carrying me {and my precious boys}through what is uncertain to me.

Something that's amazing... Ready for this?! What is uncertain to me is 100% CERTAIN to God. He knows how my life will turn out - who I will end up growing old with, and the kind of men that my boys will be when they grow up. He knows where I will be in the next few months, and in the coming years.

For now, I need to focus on today and being the woman that he intends for me to be. I need to focus on putting my faith in Him. 100% committing to something that I am not 100% certain of. FAITH. TRUST.

For now, I will continue to pray for wisdom, patience and peace.

Love is PATIENT, love is KIND. It does not ENVY, it does not BOAST, it is not PROUD. It is not RUDE, it is not SELF-SEEKING, it is not EASILY ANGERED, it keeps no RECORD of WRONGS. Love does not DELIGHT in EVIL but REJOICES with the TRUTH. It always PROTECTS, always TRUSTS, always HOPES, always PERSEVERES

I want to be all that is LOVE. I'm a work in progress!! I find that I'm so good at focusing on my circumstances -- what I don't have and what I desire. If I fix my eyes on God and focus on being and spreading LOVE -- I know that He'll bless my life! My new plan is to be thankful for the many blessings that I so often take for granted INSTEAD of living in a pity party! 

I'm EXCITED about the way God is working in my life. Bring. It. 

*show me how to love like you have loved me*
