Extended days of driving are exhausting. I fought God quite a bit yesterday. I had a tough day. Things with work went really poorly – got a lot of phone calls from clients, and that’s no fun when you are on vacation. Nonetheless, God kept urging me to engage in prayer and I was so mopey and upset I ignored Him over and over again. This is my public apology to God for doing so.
Have you ever noticed that when it rains it pours? It’s hardly ever just one bad thing that happens…. it’s generally a handful. For us it was an accident, followed by losing a big job that would have drastically changed our next coming months. On top of that, every time we go out of town (especially the Chicago area) we really get upset that we don’t live here. I know it seems like a minor thing, but neither of us like Florida. We love my family that is there, and our friends and our Church… but we don’t feel like that’s where we are supposed to be. We know we are supposed to be there right now, but we can’t wait until God sends us out. So, what was supposed to be a relaxing vacation has quickly turned super stressful.
We just arrived in Illinois last night, so we are settling in. We are believing for calm relaxing week that will refresh us and send us home ready to tackle anything that comes our way.
God tells us to “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.” And that’s what we are doing.
In our struggles, I encourage each one of you to let the little things roll off of your back and allow God to make “all things work together” for your good!
