God is Enough

Happy Monday Loves!

I hope you all had a fantastic weekend! I sure did! It included pumpkin pie coffee, sweats, reading & being lazy with the hubs while it rained!!

We tried out a new church on Sunday {thanks to some wonderful recommendations from gals at my bible study} and OHMYLANTA it was AH.MAZ.ING! It was exactly what my heart has been craving, and the hubs it totally down to keep going. I can feel the Lord calling me to make so many changes in my life and having a husband who supports me makes it that much sweeter.

This past year has been so crazy, ups and downs, madness, goodness, blessings, and things that started out as thorns in my side but ended in blessings as well.

The message at church yesterday really hit home: GOD IS ENOUGH. He is all that you need. The pastor straight up said "your life sucks!" ha! so true, it isn't anything that I do that makes my life awesome, it is all God. I have to give it all up to him.

I have to remind myself daily that he already has my life planned out. I need not try and take matters in my own hands, because it is his hands that control EVERYTHING.

Whenever I think I have it all figured out he says, "hang on there girl, this isn't my plan". I am learning so much this year about patience and letting go and letting GOD.

Sometimes I find myself throwing my hands up in the air, looking towards the sky and yelling "WHY GOD, WHY???" Usually I hear him whispering to me, "because my child this is not my plan, this is not my plan."

There have been some things that I am working through that I haven't shared with everyone yet. It is something I am struggling with and don't yet feel ready to share. But the people who I have revealed my struggle to, they are amazing! They have taken my struggle to the Lord and prayed for me. I can feel the prayers working, I can feel my heart strengthening. I am beginning to see the purpose/reason of this struggle. I know with 100% certainty that I am only able to rise above it all because of the Lord.

one of the hardest things for me is accepting that I have to live on Faith. That He does have a plan for me - and when things don't go as I want them to, they are still going as He wants them to! It's a daily struggle for me. Sometimes it takes years before I can look back on something and have that 'aha' moment where I'm like, 'oh, that's why it played out that way.' Beautiful post - thank you for reminding us!

Wow, I really needed to read this. Finding out my hubby was passed over for his promotion means he will be out of the coast guard come may. It's really made us scared about our future but I'm trying to push away my fears and reach out to God.
I also have a struggle that I haven't felt comfy letting the whole world know, so I can relate to all you said. It's so hard to trust in God when we don't have all the pieces of the puzzle, like He does. Thanks for sharing and so cool about finding a great church. :-)
