Trusting through disappointment

Yesterday was beautiful weather.

I even went out for a short bit to see how far the weeds have overtaken my garden.

They certainly have made head way, because I’ve not gone out to weed all week.

Yesterday, I was feeling better and was expecting to wake up able to resume house keeping and other tasks.

It didn’t happen.

I was discouraged and my attitude was less than thankful.

Yet, I know God is faithful.

It is in these things where I learn trust.

So, I have been praying and surrendering my desires before the Lord.

I’ve also been choosing to praise and thank Him.

I’m not two years old.

I can hear my father say, “No” and can accept it without a temper tantrum, because He knows what is best.

I can look to Him in this circumstance and seek His guidance.

I was wanting to feel better, because our daughter, son-in-law, and grandbabies are coming today.

Anne and my mom are coming Saturday, because Sis is going to walk across the stage and receive her diploma!

Praise God!

Although, I wanted to have the house spotless and food prepared I am putting my desire in God’s hands.

My family understands.

They are not coming to see the house or eat.

I’m certain they’d be perfectly happy to have take-out.

And Jase is very helpful around the house.

Yesterday, he was sweeping and vacuuming.

Today, he’s going to have to mop and dust.

I praise God for our son who helps me so much.

And I am blessed to see God working in his life.

I pray he too is learning to trust God daily.

Trusting God is so much more than asking for things.

It’s a way of life.

Today, I’m getting to trust Him in my infirmities and praise Him for He has always provided.

God is good.

He is worthy.

Psalm 4:5 KJV — Offer the sacrifices of righteousness, and put your trust in the LORD.

Dear Lord Jesus,

Thank You so much for reminding me that I need not be disappointed. Just because things don’t go as I hoped doesn’t mean You are not working, it just means I had a wrong perception of what would be best. You always know what is best. You are always working all things for good for those called according to Your purpose. I know I can rest in that. Thank You so much for Your faithfulness, love, and patience. I love You, Jesus. Amen.
