Heavenly Father, I don’t really understand all of your ways. Yet I know they are perfect. Please help me to choose to trust you in the midst of my pain…especially when my emotions are vying for my attention. As I walk this road, I will take thoughts captive and know that your timing is best.The last time I checked, our Creator is never late.
A lot of times things just don’t go our way. The natural response to an undesired event in your life is disappointment. If you say otherwise, I think you are trying to be too spiritual. While experiencing this emotion is expected and accepted, your disappointment has to become your stepping stone…not the anchor that drowns you. When you apply for that dream job and don’t land it. When you think a relationship has potential and it suddenly ends. When you take your 13th pregnancy test and still don’t see that second line. When you submit your writings for publication and they aren’t accepted 🙂 Accept it. Grieve it. Feel it. But don’t live there.
