Patience, faith, and comparison

No comments

I think I’ve hit backspace more today than ever before. I’ve struggled with what to write and if I even should.

Today was a struggle. A struggle of patience, comparison, and faith.

God has a plan for me! It’s a plan far greater than my own. But, sometimes it’s just hard to wait for!

Today a door closed, at least for the time being, and it was a hard door to watch.

After a few moments and a lot of tears I accepted that God’s plan is at work and I just have to wait. This season of life is hard. I have little ones who are growing up more than a thousand miles from their cousins.

I remember in this tough time how blessed we are. Blessed with a church family. Blessed with a family we chose. My kids have aunts and uncles down here that they love to see! For them, Texas is home. They don’t have the same connection my husband and I do with Michigan.

So tomorrow looks a little different than today did. Tomorrow doesn’t have the door open that I thought we’d be walking through.

Tomorrow I focus on patience and faith and I abandon comparison.

My life doesn’t look the way I thought it would but that doesn’t need to mean it isn’t a blessed one.

At the end of the day, my cup is still full.
