Who Am I When Everything is Disheartened?
In high school I was told to think about where I wanted to be in 5 years and make a plan. My plan involved graduating from College, having a dream job, and being married. As the years went by I began to be discouraged because everyone around me seemed to be achieving their goals except me. I felt left out and began to question if God heard my prayers. I became discouraged and basically gave up on my dreams. Through my personal storm, my prayer life grew stronger. "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight." -Proverbs 3:5-6 When I began to let go of control and lean on God's word, doors opened wider and bigger than I could ever imagine. "For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways," declares the LORD. - Isaiah 55:8
