Setting up for my church brunch last month
I don’t think my life has ever seemed so out-of-order or chaotic as it is right now. My husband is moving to Scott City in 3 weeks and the kids and I are following 20 days after that. And, we still don’t have a place to live in Scott City. We have had a couple of “almosts” – including a place in the country we were really hoping for – but nothing has worked out yet.
I’m busy wrapping up things with my beloved church and MOPS groups as well as my son’s speech therapy and the kids’ 4-H. I’m sorting through papers and a lifetime of our stuff and trying to figure out what to do with everything. My column needs to get done and I have dozens of articles I need to get written to send to national publications so I can make try and make money with my writing. Taxes are due (ouch) and our house is a mess.
Do you ever have those days in life when you just want to stay in bed? Yep. That’s me right now.
I’m not telling you all of these to make you feel sorry for me I just want to encourage you (and remind me) to trust in God. I am sure some of you are going through some really rough stuff that would make my trials seem insignificant. I want to remind you that even when things in life (and at times, dozens of things at once) don’t look like they will work out, God is still in control!
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord. “Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
~ Jeremiah 29:11
