Hi friends! How are you each doing today? I am excited to be nearly complete with my first year of graduate school this week! It is amazing how the Lord has been there for me every step of the way this year, as He has given me the strength to do everything that I have needed to do.
Lately the Lord has put a unique topic on my heart. I've been thinking about how easy it is to doubt God when things don't go exactly way I want them to. The Lord has been revealing this to me as something that I struggle with in my walk with Him.
This might be something that many of you struggle with as well. Maybe your looking a new church to attend, but you haven't yet found anywhere where you fit in and you are feeling frustrated. Maybe the Lord just called you to move halfway across the country, and your having a hard time trusting Him in that new season of life for you. Or maybe things simply just aren't going the way you want them to, and your just plain down about it. Well my friends, I can tell you that if you have surrendered every area of your life to Christ and have given Him full control, then He knows what He is doing, and He has a plan for your life greater than you could ever imagine. It is so crucial for us to keep trusting God, regardless if things don't go the way we want them to. Close friends may hurt us or turn against us, but God has a plan. We may not get into that college that we had been praying about for the longest time, but God has a plan. Our boyfriend or girlfriend may have just broken up with us, but God has a plan. This is something that I need to ask myself regularly: If I don't keep trusting Jesus despite my circumstances, how is that giving God the opportunity to work in my life?
How is God working in big ways in your life right now? I would love to hear! I love you guys!
Love always, Jess
