My friend spoke words of wisdom into my life the other night. She said, “maybe God is protecting you from something you can’t see.”
How had I not considered that?
Does anyone else ever have moments where you turn to God and say, “are you forgetting about me? I am positive that relationship/friendship/job is meant to be!”
I’ll be honest with you. I sometimes fail to realize that the plans I make for myself are nothing in comparison to the ones that God has made for me. I forget that He knows infinitely more than I do. And when things don’t pan out exactly as I think they should, thoughts like, “I’ve missed out” and, “that was my last chance” start to run through my mind.
And friend, if you can relate at all, here’s the reality of the situation:
I will not “miss out” on the things that God is preparing for me.
I serve a God who offers chance after chance.
I want no part of anything that is not from Him.
If I got everything I thought I wanted, my life would be a hot mess.
I am not God, I do not know what God knows, and ultimately, He is the trust worthy author of my life.
So just in case you need to hear this one more time today: maybe God is protecting you from something you can’t see.
Girl, even His no’s are covered in love. He knows infinitely more than we do. And I can promise you this: when you receive the things that are from Him, you are never going to look back and wish you had gotten what you previously asked for.
And I hope the peace of that completely covers you.
