Many times we can almost forget how much we ARE blessed and how much of God's goodness we take for granted. We look at the short-term issues and how they affect us rather than the long-term vision of our life's purpose and calling. Keeping our eyes on Jesus has always been the answer to every challenge we have met.
We do not like the circumstances we find ourselves in at times, but we know there is much to be learned in the journey of walking out what God has set before us. I never despair AT God or question HIM as holy, just, true, kind. I have to realize He is altogether OTHER, and His ways are not mine, and maybe I couldn't comprehend His plan if he did decide to reveal it to me, so my job is to trust and submit and choose joy.
