NOT MY WILL.
I've been struggling lately accepting where I'm at. I've found myself unhappy with where I'm at, wondering what will come next and anticipating a new season of life in more ways than one. And so much so that I've been praying and pleading and asking God to please, pretty please, bring me to a new place.
And yet I'm still here. Just the same as where I was before.
And it was that frustration that brought me to realize that I don't always get my way. And yet, I was reacting to that truth with temper tantrums and whining, just the kind of stuff that I hate hearing myself.
I can't speak for you, but I know that I have a hard time remembering that God's plans are filled with PURPOSE. There's a reason why we're trudging through the season we're in, even if we don't always enjoy it.
There's a reason why we've been called to be the employees, the family members, the friends, and the bloggers that we are. We may not always appreciate our jobs or our purpose, but we're there for a very good reason (even if we don't know what it is!).
So maybe this doesn't resonate with you, maybe you don't understand where I'm at. But I pray that if you do, you would cling to the truth that His plans are perfect and that He's got you right where you need to be in this moment.
Instead of praying "get me out of here" my new prayer for this week is that His will be done, NOT mine.
