Hello Blog Friends!
Today is a good day because it's my dad's b-day and then mine is tomorrow. I was NOT looking forward to having my 24th birthday until the last few days. It's funny, I just thought my life would be so much different than it is now. I never imagined that I would have to move back home with my parents after living on my own in San Francisco, that I would not at least be in the process of getting married, and working at my current company/position. It's not that these things are bad- they just weren't in the plans...at all.
I read a blog post that really made me feel better about getting another year older and not having my life work out that way I thought it should after college. If you have time, you should read it. It talks about how sometimes we feel like God isn't listening but that He is and this is what he's saying (quoted from the post):
“I know, my son, I know. I know, my daughter, I know. That thing you wanted is not going to happen. Not the way you’ve always dreamed. I know this hurts. I know this stings. I know you feel like I am distant or not aware of where you are and who hurt you and what you think life was supposed to be like. I know in moments like this you doubt that I can count the hairs on your head or have your best in mind. But please, I am not done. I have barely started to reveal your life to you. I am the God who satisfies your desires with good things. That is me! And when it comes to your hopes and your fears and your dreams, I know, my son, I know.”
Being reminded that God IS listening and actually making my life better than I ever would have been able to plan, makes me grateful for another year of life and all that God is going to bring.
