Two truths

Ever felt like your life was turned upside down? Chances are, everyone has felt that way at one point or another. Whether it was because of school, work, relationships, family, friends, even regular day-to-day things that can make life seem impossible sometimes. Feeling overwhelmed or not in control of our lives can create a sense of stress or worry inside of us.  Yet, we are told to trust that the Lord has a plan for us, and that He makes ALL things work together for our good:
And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them. Romans 8:28
It gets difficult to let go, and let God.

1.  You think you know what is going to happen. Well, you don't. Yep it's that simple.  You may create a plan for your life, a future, and it just might not be what the Lord has planned for you.  So at that point you can feel lost, confused, even angry.  Well, this quote from Thomas S. Monson is so true, and something we all should learn. Things don't always go the way that we want, so we simply "adjust our sails" and try something else.
2. You think you know what is best for you. Well, you don't always.  If you trust in the Lord, and you live your life to glorify Him, He will take care of you.  He knows you, all of you; the good, the bad, your best, your worst-- your every waking thought.  If He's taking you through trouble waters, perhaps you should hold on.  There's a method to the madness, it just might take time in the wake of everything to realize what it was.

We don't always do everything right, we don't always know what's best, and we can't see the Lord's entire plan. So, we trust and love the Lord and wait for things to get better.

Incase you didn't notice, I have a major case of the Monday's.  But, there are so many things I have to be grateful for.  If you're having a bad day, remember that too!

  1. I so needed to hear that this week. My life has definitely been turned upside down and I don't even know which way is up lately. I'm trying to let God direct me but like you said, its so hard to let go and let God. Its hard to know what he wants for me and what direction he wants me to go. But thanks for this post. It was a great reminder!
