Welcome back to our weekly coffee chat:) I would love to sit down with many of you for real someday and learn about who you are and what's going on in your life.
This week as we start off, I would ask for your prayer.
I've been overwhelmed.
I started off this week with a burden on my heart for one of my siblings. When anything goes wrong with one of my siblings, I care, and I feel their pain right along with them. I want to fix it, but as my hubby so gently reminds me, it's in God's hands and I can't change things.
On Monday, I started teaching High School. It's not going as well as I hoped. I'm feeling overwhelmed and inadequate.
Also on Monday, my hubby faced some serious moral issues at work. I can't go into details at the moment, but it's tough. He has been put in a horrible situation and needs prayer as he works through everything.
It's life. And life isn't always easy!
I really believe that God is trying to build our trust in Him through all these challenges. However, I am disappointed in myself for my lack of faith. I so often have my own agenda for my life. There's a way that I would like to see things work.
God clearly has different plans, and instead of resting in His perfect plan for my life, I get all flustered and overwhelmed when He steps in and takes over.
My sister encouraged me this week, reminding me that God's plan is so perfect that if we could see the whole picture, or understood what He was doing, we would choose His way every time.
I am really learning to let go of my plans and choose God's plan for my life even when I don't understand.
Jeremiah 29:11 " For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord. Plans to prosper you, and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future."
I can't wait to share with you how God works in each one of these situations! I know He's going to!
What about you? What's going on in your life this week? How can I pray for you?
