"Delight yourself in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart." (Psalm 34:7
Life is busy. I mean each day it is so easy to get caught up with your nose in that phone or computer you miss all the beauty going on around you. You look at life through the lens of your camera and miss the scope and magnitude of seeing it in person. I'm guilty of it. In fact, I realized yesterday that I started staring at my screen at 6:30am and before I knew it, it was 6:30pm. While some days we must do the things we must in order to get to the places we need to be, don't lose sight of why you do it. Don't be so busy making a life that you forget to live. Get up, take a walk, tell a story, have a conversation, watch your kids play, play with them, sit in awe of God's beautiful creation and just take it in. You never know when your time is up, so live each day like it is. Enjoy the beauty of the moment, the thrill of the ride, the fact that sometimes the journey is long, and how blessed we are to be able to take that long way around.
Believe in the Unbelievable that is YOU and have a blessed day!
"All things are possible if you believe." Mark 9:23

This was something that popped up in my Facebook memories that I wrote 4 years ago. I smiled as I know God put it right there to remind me what I often forget.
There were times I doubted it. No matter how much I prayed, no matter how much I was confident in myself, no matter how much I knew it was God's plan. I doubted myself. I doubted my abilities. I doubted all of it. I questioned why! I would pray and pray for things to be better. Pray for the burden and the adversity to be lifted. Pray to God asking Him why me! He answered me over and over by giving me more, but I couldn't and wouldn't see it. Funny how that works, isn't it? We know what we should feel, but we don't always feel it. We know that faith tells us to trust, but we don't always trust. It's hard to see it sometimes. God, however, understands that we must find Him at our own pace. That we must endure those trials, and He will be there when we are ready. Ready to accept that all of it matters and is part of His plan for us. It's cliche, I know, but everything does happen for a reason. Everything is part of understanding that God's love is unconditional, and our ability to accept that will be how we accept the things given to us to grow. I continue to pray, but I don't pray the same. Over time, my prayers are no longer that things will be better. Instead, I ask for strength. I ask for understanding. I ask for God's patience with me. That I would appreciate the lessons that He was teaching me and that I would find the ability to be thankful for everything that He felt I could handle... For being there with me as we handled it together - In faith, in hope, in love. Through Him, with Him and in Him.
