I meant to write at least one heartfelt piece a month, but sometimes there are so many rough patches that I need to hurdle through that existing on a daily basis is a conscious effort.
Today is a particularly an “unsmiling” day for reasons I prefer not to dwell on. Sometimes I think that the next best thing to dealing with disappointments is to let it get lost in the dismal abyss of black nothingness. Yes, I just quoted Patrick Star (LOL).
But then, as I sit here, typing away, occasionally looking out the window to see the bright day outside, I also feel in my heart that letting the disappointment get to me is silently saying that I am not trusting the Lord to drive my life. While this is my life to live, I also know that this is a borrowed life that I have to live according to His plans. I can make decisions, but only He knows what lies for me ahead. Jeremiah 29:11, right?
So, yeah, sometimes we feel that we get dealt with situations that break our hearts but if we remember that our heart is for the Lord, we should also recognize that He will never let our heart stay broken.
If you are in a similar funk as you are reading this, take a deep breath and remember that nothing is too big for the Lord to handle. Faith it, until you make it!
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.” (NIV)
