Just like flowers blooming in the spring…I desperately need a new beginning!
Or maybe I just need to remember Jeremiah 29:11…
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
I know my ways are not His ways.
I know He has a plan for me…a good one. Sometimes, though, I lose sight of HIS plan and only see MY plan.
And that is where the trouble starts.
I get all caught up in how I want things to be. How I want plans to work out. How I want…I have to get beyond that.
The past few months several things have been going on. Sometimes serious things. These things have caused me to be distracted. My sleep pattern has been messed up. I have had some health issues…and I am pretty healthy. I believe all of these are stress related.
And the greatest stress reliever…the Great Physician. The healer of all ills.
Spring is popping…soon it will be summer. He has a plan. I need to let go.
HE really is in charge.
I have been absent from this space much more than I had planned for 2012. Because of all the things going on I find myself having trouble finding the balance I need to manage everything. Sarah Mae wrote a great post recently about “doing it all.” Even though I don’t have little kids, after reading it I realized that I can’t do it all either. And guess what, no one expects me to. No…all the expectations are put on my BY me.
As my academic year winds down I am trying to find my way…
I don’t mind the ups and downs…but sometimes the turkeys really get to me!!
Sarah Mae is also celebrating sending her traditionally published book off to the publisher. And she is celebrating with a giveaway. Check it out!
For those of you that have been so patient with me, I REALLY, TRULY appreciate it. I know how easy it is to not come back when someone doesn’t post for a while…again, thank you.
