Finding Peace In My Future

Finding Peace In My Future

Last night, an eye-opening thought came to me. I often pray and spend time with the Lord in the evenings, but this time was different. It changed the way I see my life, and I pray that it may be as inspiring to you as it was to me. ❤

I have always seen faith as something we hold on to (or don’t, in some cases) in times of distress. They’re times when our well-being and life as we know it is on the line, when all we can do is cry out to the Lord and pray that He will care for us.

Those are certainly ideal times to call upon Him, but last night, as I lay in bed on the verge of sleep, the Lord taught me something I will never forget.

Faith is also in the little things.

This also includes the decisions and goals that will have a huge impact on our future. That may be hard to grasp sometimes, I understand. I find myself in that same place all the time. However, I’m here to tell you that if you feel the same way I do and would love to know what paths to take in the future, He has plans for us! When we trust in Him and allow Him to take control of our lives, He most certainly will. It all starts with trusting in Jesus, God’s Son, as our Lord and Savior, and your life will be forever changed.

I don’t know what I would be like without Him, and I am beyond thankful for His love, grace, mercy, and involvement in my life.

Even though I deeply struggle to let my faith rest in His timing and love, the final outcome is worth it every. single. time. ❤ ❤ ❤

From finding a job to the pursuit of college, to my future husband and family and everything else I will eventually chase after – He has it all within His control, and I am so thankful. 🙂

Thank you so much for reading this thought-filled post, guys!! If this has inspired you and you’d like to talk about how the Lord has worked in your life (I’d love to know!), just comment down below. I’ll always be here to talk!

Happy Sunday!

    1. Thank you so much for these sweet words, Lynn!! ❤ I appreciate your kindness 🙂 I truly hope that I will always hold onto the truths He has shown me; they will certainly be of great help to me! You're a blessing to me, too ❤ Hugs to you!


  3. Amen!!! This is something He has taught me as well. We are definitely pushed with our faith in harder times, but we can be strengthened when we work on giving Him everything, especially the small. My home pastor often said, “If we can’t give Him the small stuff, how can we ever give Him the big stuff?” Thank you for opening up Maggie, I know this was one of your goals, and seriously girl keep at it!! You are reaching so many people, and you are encouraging so many of us. 🙂

  4. Sometimes, I get so caught up in the hard times that I get so mad that why its happening to me but HE really helps me get through this, giving me strength and belief that everything will get better. So grateful for everything HE has given me so far and will give me for a happier and successful life ahead. Great post girl 🙂

    1. Aww thank you, Lydia! ❤ ❤ That also seems insurmountable to me in my life at times, too, but I know that He will (and is!) helping us. It blesses me to know that the Lord used this to inspire you! Thanks for sharing 🙂 xxx

  6. I found this post especially inspiring for me at this point in my life. In just a few months I will be graduating from college, and I honestly have no idea what to do after that or where I should apply for a job. Thanks for the reminder that the Lord does have a plan for my life, and that instead of worrying about the future, I need to completely trust in His sovereignty.

  7. This is so true! Thank you for sharing! It’s hard to trust God sometimes with the little things (“oh, I can take care of this by myself”) even if we trust God with the big things.

    1. You’re welcome, Hanne!! I’m the same way:) I sometimes feel like the smaller things are what I should handle, or that He won’t be interested in helping me with them (which is a huge lie, haha), so it helps me to realize He cares about every aspect of our lives – big and small! ❤
