I really need to go to bed, but I wanted to write a post to feel a little more productive on here. I have been wanting for days to get on here and write and write. I have so many things I want to say. My heart is bursting at the seams and my mind is racing. I have been a mad jot-down-er while I can’t get on here to officially blog my thoughts. But for now I will say that God is good. After a long, slow, irritating, busy day, I am home in bed and am going to have some sweet dreams in a few minutes. There’s nothing better than to close your eyes on a day you thought would defeat you.
But I can trust that He has better things in store for me than for me to lose control and run away from my life, not looking back. Sometimes it’s difficult even to see the end of the week, or even the end of the workday. But these are trivial matters when it comes to the plans He has for me.
My eyes are ever toward the Lord, for he will pluck my feet out of the net.
I love this translation. I am one of those poor ducks who get caught in the plastic six-pack holders. Or an adorable penguin who gets the oil washed off of him in those soap commercials. God loves us and wants to heal us as much as we want to save those innocent little baby creatures who get stuck in a mess they can’t get themselves out of. We can get through our life’s messes with Him standing strong beside us. Therefore, we do not lose heart.
