No Matter What

I'm discovering that it's easy to feel peace and joy when things look like they are going according to my plan.
I don't mind "relinquishing control" when God seems to be leading in the direction I would like to go.
I love my husband being the leader of my home, when he makes the choices I would like to make.
But I'm not quite sure what to do when the answers start looking like "no".
When do I continue to pray and believe, knowing in my heart the desires there were planted there by God?
When do I let them go, knowing He gave me a husband to protect and guide me, and who would never make a decision that wasn't in our family's best interest?
I cling to the knowledge that God is for me, and so I will trust in hope, no matter what.

wow! This is powerful! So easy to trust Him when things are just like WE want them but other times, we struggle. Love this Kelly!

Thanks for visiting my blog!

Remember this verse (and I paraphrase) Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, make your requests known to God. And the peace that passes all understanding will guard your mind in Christ Jesus.

I also like looking back at my planners and my notebooks of to do lists. They are so much like a journal and can evoke many memories. I wish I had kept more of them instead of throwing them away.
