Do you ever wonder what will come your way? Do you ever wonder if what you are doing in life is good enough? Do you wonder if in 10 years from now you will look back at all you have accomplished or could have accomplished in that time? Do you just still at your age think to yourself…."what do I want to be when I grow up"?
Sometimes it takes a long time to figure out what your journey will actually be. Where you are headed or why you have had struggles that have no answer. Every part of your life has a story which is insane to think about.
Some people go through life wondering "when will things happen for me or my family"? "When will we ever get a break from everything that we have been through"? "When will I get a better job"? "When will I get married or have a baby"? " When will it be my turn to succeed"?
You know what… you’re time will come! It may not be the way you planned or the way that you will expect it, but it will.
You have to understand that God has your life all planned out for you and He has even before you were even born. Crazy right? He has your life diary right in the palm of His hands!! He has it all set, so don’t resist it because things just won’t work even though you think they will. Trust His timing and NOT yours.
So for my family He had this plan that we would be parents to a million kids (just kidding only 13) LOL!!!
I know for me there have been times when I look around and wonder "why"? Why can’t I do things with my family that I want to do, why can’t I be successful and not have to ever worry about finances, why does it seem that we try too hard sometimes to get no where?
Social media can play a huge part on these feelings. Lots will post things that they have done with their family or how successful they are. But if you look at the whole picture we should be happy for them and not envious. Proverbs 14:30 says…. "A heart at peace gives life to the body, but envy rots the bones."
We are all here for a purpose and a reason and you know what… we may not know that reason right off the bat, but eventually we will figure it all out.
Yeah I would love to be able to afford more then what we have, but you know at the end of the day I look in my house and realize that God has given me more than I am deserved. Being happy is more then just doing things. It’s about being grateful for what you have at the time. Thanking Him for each and every blessing that has come your way, and I mean good or bad.
He has given us ears to listen and He has given us a mouth to speak to others encouraging and lifting each other up in times that may not only be troubling, but not being envious of others but rather excited. You see…. having a big family has it’s pros and cons just like anything (but I will save that for another blog post) but, one thing I can say for sure…. there’s lots of talk about what everyone else is doing or what they have, but… it doesn’t matter at the end of the day because we are grateful.
God will bless those who give and bring others to Him.
So as I write this blog post I think man I have so much to share with you all! I am excited for you to come along our journey. We have just begun to get started.
