Trusting Him

Trusting Him

I am so tempted to question the Lord’s plan. I want to understand, figure out, and comprehend … but I can’t.

I don’t desire for my mom to be going through this, for it to be affecting my family the way that it is – but that is not something I can control.

But I do know the One Who holds our futures, Who cares for us and loves us eternally. I don’t have to worry about what might happen, or feel upset about the circumstances; He’s watching over us and protecting us. He knows what’s going on and why He’s allowing this to happen.

Instead of pessimism, I’m chasing optimism. Instead of fear, I’m chasing trust; instead of keeping it in my hands, I’m surrendering it to His hands. He knows best ❀

This situation is definitely not easy, but I know that He’s drawing me closer through this, and that is a beautiful reason to give it all to Him. πŸ™‚

If you’re following my mom’s blog, you can see what this situation is all about. Her last two posts (part one and part two) have talked about it. xx

We appreciate all of your support. ❀

  1. Such love for God. He will not leave you or your mom or your family. As always I am praying for you, for you all. Y’all are God’s children and nothing is stronger than that. Nothing can conquer that. Much love and big hugs to you. If you need anything, I am here but I am the least of all His creations, and nothing compared to His strength, His love, His protection which is everything.

      1. I know you wouldn’t. I’d share them with you anyway πŸ˜‰ By the way, I’m cleaning out my closet in the next couple of weeks, thanks to your motivational “achievements” post. I do it once a year but you inspired me to get to it πŸ™‚

      2. Woohoo! That’s awesome. Glad I inspired you πŸ™‚ I recently cleaned out my own closet, and it took way longer to find a place for everything than I thought it would. Haha!

      3. I saw it and you did a great job!!! Mine will be easier because I am just pulling clothes that I don’t wear. You know I was on my own very young. I didn’t have but like 2 pairs of pants and 2 shirts, but now God blesses me with sales on stuff every where I go. I end up with too much. I always donate it to the church down the road from my house. They have a thrift store. Unless you know someone who might want some clothes?

      4. Thank you! Man, I wish mine had been that easy, lol. Aw you were? 😦 I’m sorry ❀ Finding clothes on sale and for cheap is such a blessing. Haha I'm always up for new-to-me clothes, but I wouldn't want you sending that through the mail. We're probably not the same size, anyway. I usually wear medium-large shirts (for modesty – I'm honestly a small), and I'm a 12 in pants.

      5. I buy large, and extra large shirts most of the time because I don’t like tight stuff on me. I think it’s the anxiety, panic, and it’s comfortable πŸ™‚ It drives my mom crazy because she said if she was a my size she’d wear my size. Most of my jeans(well the regular fitting jeans lol) are 6 to 8 but I wear a lot of cargo jeans, and (embarrassing) when I get cargos I get mens, 32/32. which are much larger than a 6-8 but they are comfortable and my hubby says they look good on me πŸ™‚ I think he is being nice but that’s his job, right??

      6. Oh okay πŸ™‚ Yeah I don’t like tight clothes, either; they make me very conscious of what I’m wearing, instead of it being comfortable, lol. Oh I’ve had a few pairs of mens’ pants over the years, but they were sweats. Haha! They fit nicer than girls’ sweats in the backside πŸ˜‰ Well either way, it’s nice that he supports your clothing choices!

      7. oh man, mens cargos are the best, with sneakers they are great and you can dress them up with boots, and a nice shirt, or sweater. I have women ask me all the time where did I get my jeans, I’m like in the mens department πŸ˜‰ But yeah, dickies, carharts, or lees cargos, the best. They make me happy lol. I’m 5’3 and 118- 120(depending how many strawberries I’ve eaten lol) but I get the 32/32 because if I wear a pair of boots the length works out perfect. With sneakers you really can’t tell πŸ™‚ Most of the regular womens jeans are levis, some carharts, and dickies but they are just whatever length they make the ladies lengths. I do buy some small shirts, depending on the shirt but usually its large, extra large.

      8. That’s awesome. I love finding ways to make good deal clothing work in nice outfits! My wallet can’t afford the clothes I want to buy yet lol (I’m waiting for the Lord to give me my first job), but as soon as I have my own money, I’ll love getting to pair clothes and accessorize everything. πŸ™‚

      9. Oh no a sleeveless shirt you can wear a regular bra, maybe you are thinking strapless shirt. I don’t have anything that can’t be worn with a regular bra.lol I was asking because the shirts I pulled out of my closet when I got home are all sleeveless. I can’t wear them anymore because I have to keep my shoulders out of the sun 😦

      10. Oh okay I couldn’t remember what the difference was, haha! I do have a few sleeveless shirts, but most do have sleeves. Could you email me a picture of the shirts? I’d like to see them!

      11. If I can figure out how to get the picture’s from my phone to the computer. I disabled all internet stuff off my phone. I didn’t use it and it just drained the battery. Even though it wasn’t being used it would still run and in turn run down my battery lol

      12. of course you know sicne I am old as dirt and I use a computer that might be older than me for my main email, I’ve had to do this the long way around lol. I am sending me a picture of me in one of the shirts but I look HORRIBLE. I have been up early and drove for 8 hours, so looking worse for the wear. But it gives you an idea of what the shirts look like on someone lol.

      13. Aw you don’t look horrible! But yeah, driving that long takes a toll on everyone. And I’ve had a lot of experience with old computers, and they are definitely hard to navigate, haha!

      14. I got it! Thank you so much for sending me a picture of yourself. I was so happy to know what you look like! You’re beautiful ❀ and I love your hair – I wish mine was still that long! I have to cut it because it's so thick and wavy; it tends to get in the way at that length! I like the shirts πŸ™‚ especially the black and white one; I love stripes, haha!

      15. LOL ok good. I was beginning to think it didn’t work and I’d have to start over πŸ™‚ I will cut mine once a yr to my shoulders. I just haven’t got to it yet this year. Ponytails, ponytails girl it keeps it out of the way, of course usually double up on the bands holding it at this length because mine is heavy too. Beautiful I am not but you are sweet so I would expect nothing less than kind words from you. Today, I look like I have been out in the woods for days or something, with no sleep lol.

      16. No, I got it; I was having to take care of Elizabeth, as well as eat dinner. πŸ™‚ Yes, ponytails are definitely my lifesaver, but with long hair, they weigh down my head and hurt my neck. Haha! That’s why I love medium-length hair. Well, you ARE beautiful in God’s eyes! So you are to me, too. ❀ hahaha I've had sooo many days like that! Definitely not my favorite days to take pictures. Also, I'm sending you an email that I think you'd like to read πŸ™‚ x

      1. She’s doing well, thank you. πŸ™‚ She has to have surgery done today (you can read about it on her blog), so we’re praying that everything is peaceful and goes well.

  2. I continue to be so impressed by you. I love “…chasing optimism…” Things have been so tough for all of you lately and I’m just so glad your mom has you there. I know you’re a rock for her in spite of your own feelings. I’d steal you for my own but I feel better knowing you’re there for your mom and the rest of the family. You are truly a blessing, Maggie!
