Breathe Deep

Ah, patience.  :)

I'm reminded how difficult it can be to remain still and not worry about what's ahead.  To trust in God's plan and be thankful for the present has been more than a challenge for me the past few days.  It might be easier if I wasn't in continuous pain... I just want to know what's going on with me!

The honest truth is I want what God wants for my life.  I trust that His plan is much better than my dreams, and I believe He's given me these dreams for a purpose... to fulfill that plan.  Although my heart has been set on something my entire life, it's preparing to adjust those plans and welcome new ones, if necessary.  I know I could use my story to help others and I know God would use me for His glory.  

I'm not worried.

I'm thankful for all I have and for all I've overcome.  I'm thankful for my dreams; the ones I've turned into reality and the ones I continue to pursue.  I'm thankful for second chances, for do-overs.  I'm thankful for storms as they help me grow and learn.  I'm thankful for family and friends and for everyone who supports and encourages me.  This life is amazing and I have every intention of living it fully with joy, laughter, and happiness!
