I am having so much trouble with this…

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.
Jeremiah 29:11

You see, I am not very good at trusting the process.  No, I am much better at telling people what to do and how to do it.  Just ask the people I live with!

I get so caught up in the emotions of the moment that I COMPLETELY forget that there is a picture that I don’t see…a BIG picture.  I get caught up in ONLY WHAT I SEE – I lose sight of the future.

I lose sight of the fact that HE is in control.

I lose sight of the fact that HE sees everything and only lets me see the past and the now.

I lose sight of the fact that HE ordained today.  It is HIS, not mine.

Lord, I don’t know how come I have to go through this over and over.  When will I get it?  When will I stop fretting about things I can’t control and things that I do not understand? I am so thankful for your grace, Lord.  For your patience with me.  When I am disappointed with people, I need to remember that there have been times in my life when I have disappointed you and you welcomed me with open arms.  You forgive and we move on…Lord, I need to learn how to do that.

Do you have trouble with this too, or is it just me?
