Life is hard, and it's scary. It's unpredictable and a lot of times, things happen when you least expect it. The idea of that is extremely intimidating. I came across a photo the other day on Pinterest (which is the holy grail of ideas) and I felt that it was important to share because it inspired me.
Just read this, and think it about it for a second.
You see, we are so quick to question God and his love for us when we feel that He isn't listening to us. The thing is that He is listening; God hears us all the time, we just don't realize it. Ever wonder why? Reading this will answer that question. Because we are creatures of the world, often we get wrapped up in the world and its material things. Along with that, we begin to think more in sync with the ways of the world. We want what we want, and we want it NOW. As we all know, that isn't always how it works. God has a plan for us. He knows what we want, he's heard all of our prayers and thoughts and cries. But, he also knows what is best for us even when we don't, and only He knows what He has in store for us. I refer back to Exodus 14:14
"The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still."
I think this verse just sums it all up. Patience is key. God will fight for us, He will make our dreams come true, He will make sure we are provided for and taken care of if we have faith in His timing. If we calm down, pray, and remain patient, God will always see us through. So, I guess I'm just trying to remind us all to be patient. To slow down and take life one day at a time, because God knows what awesome plans He has for all of us. He's our Father, and He's always looking out for what's in our best interest, even if we don't know it at the time. So be patient, y'all. God knows what He's doing - and He's going to take care of us.
